HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!!
NOW HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE…
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.
A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating.
The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can perhaps buy precious time to get themselves to a phone and dial 911.

thank god for people like you who add sources
OKAY. So in case you didn’t click the link provided, let me sum up.
DO NOT DO THE THING THE ORIGINAL POST SAYS YOU SHOULD DO. YOU MIGHT DIE. OP GAVE TERRIBLE ADVICE BASED ON COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS.
This is why I’m so damn anal about skepticism. Unless you’re very careful with information, you might just straight up kill someone. Like, literally bring someone’s life to an end. I don’t think people generally understand the impact that a small error like this can have. Always, always find the original source, and compare that against other sources.
It doesn’t take a liar to spread this kind of misinformation. It just takes a human.

NO, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND.
THIS IS MY FAVORITE SERIES FOREVER.
IT HAS EVERYTHING I LOVE AND MORE.
Hey you! Yeah, you! Do you want to read something very confusing and occasionally quite creepy? Try the House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson!
It takes some work to get through parts, but if you read it in the right circumstances, it’s pretty effective.
H. P. Lovecraft described it thus:
"perhaps the greatest of all Mr. Hodgson’s works — tells of a lonely and evilly regarded house in Ireland which forms a focus for hideous otherworld forces and sustains a siege by blasphemous hybrid anomalies from a hidden abyss below… And everywhere there is manifest the author’s power to suggest vague, ambushed horrors in natural scenery. But for a few touches of commonplace sentimentality this book would be a classic of the first water."
Give it a read. It’s worth your trouble if you’re into this sort of thing. There are so many ways to interpret this one, and there’s more than a little to suggest that the narrator himself is far from reliable. It’s available for free at Project Gutenberg!
Can we just stop and think about how much Lightning deserves a fucking vacation?
FIRST, at age 15, Lightning’s parents were both dead and she became an adult as fast as possible to care for her sister. After graduating from High School, she enrolls into the military and loses sight of her goals. THEN, she saves her sister from her impending doom as a L’cie and possibly Cie’th, also saving an entire planet in the process. AFTER THAT, she is a goddess. Ruling over a city in an alternate dimension, while her friends and family believe she is dead. Did I mention that a certain purple haired dude keeps trying to kill her and cover the world in chaos? AND THEN, she is woken up one day and told she has to save the world AGAIN. But with a time limit of 13 days. While saving the souls of humanity, she has to deal with that purple haired dude again as he tries to lead the world into destruction.
Will she ever get a break? Will Caius ever stop trolling Lightning?
She should try taking a trip to France.
*Whispers* Marauder Shields is actually Nihilus, the first Spectre you meet and the first character you fail to save from the Reapers. You see him at the same moment the piles of corpses around you suddenly become the bodies of Ash and Kaiden.
