When, I do wonder, will the Daily Mail actually bother to put more then a few seconds of research into their articles, or not just jump to one conclusion and stick with it to the end, even when it's proven wrong? I also wonder when will Daily Mail readers actually bother to check the sources of some of these articles, especially when they relate to something rather easy to check, like a youtube video.
I've just watched a video by Skallagrim regarding the Daily Mail's "Article" about a video that has been taken down by youtube because it's a "How to" video, an instructional video, on how to defeat a stab proof vest on the Slingshot channel. Yeah, you read that right, defeat a stab proof vest. But the thing is, it WASN'T a "how to" video, it wasn't giving instructions on how to "Beat" a stab proof vest, it was testing how resilient it was, if it was indeed worth the money paid and if it could save the life of someone using it. …
Given the recent knife attack in London on 04/06/17, I felt I should put together this video giving a few tips about what to do in a knife attack. This is not a practical demonstration of any self defence methods, just a brief guide on what to do to help you increase the chances that you survive such a horrible situation.
I must point out that this is not guaranteed to succeed, just hopefully give you a better chance of getting away and surviving. I've also included the main key points below the video too.
Here's a link to one of the news articles on the attacks as well.
1. Escape. Run away, put as much distance between you and the attacker as you can. Throw things at them if you have to, even if that slows them down just a little bit it gives you a better chance to escape.
2. Raise the alarm, scream, yell, make people nearby you are aware of what's going on, this might help save someone else's life as you try to escape, it might help get the police on the scene faster.
Star Trek changed everything, and this box set's designers certainly tried to take things out of the box when they came up with the box set concepts by using the concepts and themes and even props used as equipment from the show in their efforts to bring us all something a bit different.
But how does it all hold up when put under the lens of my camera as I beam down to my reviewing table to scan it with my own sensors?
