    A friend sent this and I thought I'd post it here since I searched but couldn't find it here...

    As you move through decisions and priorities for being aware and prepared, use the following to help make decisions:

    - You can survive three minutes without air
    - You can survive three hours in extreme weather conditions
    - You can survive three days without water
    - You can survive three weeks without food
    - You can survive three months without hope

    -- Beyond those time frames, things start to degrade rapidly.

    One more:
    - A bullet can kill you in three milli-seconds

    Another "rule of 3's" I have heard in regards to armed confrontation..

    Most gun fights / shooting happen
    within 3 ft
    with 3 shots
    in 3 seconds

    When we prepare we practice the rule of 3's in most everything!!!! We try to have 3 times what we may need. It is hard but well worth the effort, it has helped us thru hard times and we are working on replacing things that have been or are being used.
