Survival Tips 101

How to Escape From a Giant Octopus

1. Pull away quickly.

2. If you do not escape, do not go limp. Octopi tire easily, so continue to put pressure on the arms by attempting to swim away.

3. Prevent the octopus's arms from wrapping around your arms.

4. Peel the suckers from your body. Give the octopus a spear, raft, surfboard, or other object to latch on to. Work quickly, before the arms grab you.

5. Detach the octopus from its anchor.

6. Turn somersaults in the water to irritate the octopus.

7. Swim toward the surface.

I don't know about you, but I rather enjoyed this tip. Should come in very handy! However, after watching this video, I'm not so sure I believe it.

Guess you never know when you will come across a giant octopus. Of course these tips can also help when you're approached by an amorous drunk, I think. Or you can smack him with the raft or surfboard.... :)
