Survival of the Smartest

Survival of the Smartest is a simple concept. And it can be applied in many ways.

Examples...

#1. Your parents were smart and got you vaccinated from many diseases.

Therefore you don't die from the measles or something silly like that because you had idiotic parents who were gullible and thought vaccinations might give you autism. (How dumb do you have to be to believe autism can be caused by a vaccine???)

#2. Knowing what to do in the aftermath of a nuclear missile attack.

You survive because you know what foods to eat, where to get safe drinking water, how to get out of the fallout cloud in a hurry, that you should avoid looking at the blast because it can blind you, knowing where to go in order to get out of the path of radioactive fallout particles.

#3. Knowing how to build a shelter so you don't freeze to death.

Let us say your airplane crashes in the wilderness and you don't know how to build a shelter and stay warm. Chances are likely you are going to die from exposure (and get eaten by a bear). But knowing how to build a shelter, how to build a fire, how to catch fish, how to hunt for food, how to forage for food... these are all things that will keep you alive.

#4. Knowing which berries or mushrooms are poisonous.

This is a no brainer. Put simply, if a person just eats random berries and mushrooms in the wilderness as their source of food, with no clue as to which are poisonous and which are not then they are really just risking their lives in a game of Russian Roulette.

#5. Knowing first aid.

Knowing basic first aid - like St John's Ambulance training - can make a huge difference when someone you know suffer serious burns, electrocuted, heart attacks, etc. If you can revive them / heal them, your group of survivors have a better chance of living over the longer term. Strength in numbers.

#6. Knowledge of animals and their anatomy.

Let us pretend you get attacked by a bear. Having a superior knowledge of a bear's anatomy will increase your chances of scoring a hit to the bear's heart and lungs, provided you also have the intelligence to make your own weapons - or know how to use weapons already at your disposal. Shooting a bear in the belly will only annoy it and make it kill you faster. Shooting it in the heart/lungs will make the difference between life and death.
