If a thief forces you to take money from an ATM, do not argue or resist. What you should do is punch your pin in reverse. EX: if your pin is 1234 you punch 4321. The moment you punch in the reverse, the money will come out but will be stuck in the machine and the machine will immediately alert the police without the theif's knowledge. Every ATM has this feature. Can't believe I never knew this!!

When a natural disaster or other emergency strikes, be prepared to have plenty of fresh drinking water on hand with the water BOB. Rather than temporarily filling a bathtub with water that could easily get contaminated or leak down the drain, lay this plastic bladder out in any standard bathtub, attach to the faucet and fill. In about 20 minutes you'll have 100 gallons. So smart. I'm getting one.
