When a major calamity or zombie apocalypse strikes, you rely on your precious supplies to keep you alive. But your supply can only last for so long, and soon you will have to do something to replenish your resources.

These survival traps will come in very handy in an emergency situation, not only in getting you food but also in protecting you from predators and intruders.

1 Tension Trap

Also known as the spring loaded trap, this can work for both animals and humans. Make sure to choose the right type of wood to ensure that the trap will be able to impale the animal in such a way that it wouldn’t be able to escape.

3 Bow Trap

Known as one of the deadliest traps ever made, it involves anchoring a bow to the ground using pegs and using trip wires to trigger the arrow. This trap will let loose an arrow when prey trips on the trip wire.

5 Apache Foot Trap

This involves digging a hole deep enough to trap bigger game, like deer, fox, or coyote. Place two layers of wooden stakes, each roughly 12 inches or more, depending on the width of the hole. Just pound the stakes on the side of the hole to make them fit. Make a snare using a rope and lay it on top of the first set of wooden stakes. The other end of the rope should be tied securely around a tree. Camouflage the hole using grass and leaves.

Say you're out camping or got lost somewhere, and you need to start a fire. You don't have a lighter, but you happen to have a piece of lemon, some copper clips, zinc nails, wire, and steel wool. I know, I know...it seems far-fetched and the chances are higher that you will be equipped with a lighter than a lemon when that happens, but what if that's really the case? Can you actually make fire with the materials on hand? Yes, according to this dude.

You will need:

  • Lemon
  • 6 copper clips
  • 6 zinc nails
  • A piece of wire
  • Steel wool

Extremely Helpful Tips On How To Spot A Liar

Sixty percent of people tell lies at least once in every ten-minute conversation.

At some point in our lives, we’ve encountered liars; we've been one ourselves, too. It's somehow inevitable to let out one lie - even a small one – just to help ourselves get out of a sticky situation.

It doesn't hurt to tell one small lie, so long as you know that you aren't stepping on anyone or you know so well that it doesn't get out of hand. But sometimes, even the smallest lie has its way of creating undesired effects that you never intended to have.

On the other hand, there are just people who’d rather lie endlessly, anytime about anything. They can be someone you know but don't care about; then again, they could also be someone you care about so much, and the latter can be exhausting to deal with.
