Spidey Sense

By Flea - Be A Survivor

I remember watching the old Spiderman cartoon when I was a kid and hearing Spiderman talk about his “Spidey Sense” that warned him of danger before he encountered it. I remember wishing I had Spidey Sense, not to mention I would have love to been able to scale walls and shoot a web like substance from my wrists but I digress.

In reality many folks do have the small alarm bell that goes off in their head when something just doesn’t seem right. The trick is learning to recognize it and pay attention to it.

We have all been there, a situation that just didn’t feel right, a suspicious character, seeing someone doing something stupid and KNOWING something bad was going to happen. This is our natural “Spidey Sense” given to us by our maker to try and help us stay out of trouble.

When you get that feeling learn to recognize it and by all means act on it. Take control of the situation and if there is immediate danger for you or someone around you quickly get the situation under control and avert the pending crisis before something bad does happens.

You can help develop this skill by doing a few simple tasks.

Always be aware of your situation and surroundings. Don’t take anything for granted and pay close attention to what is going on around you. The more aware you are the more likely you will be able to recognize and avert a possible crisis.

Don’t be afraid to act on your feelings and either disarm the situation or walk away. Inaction will make you feel guilty if something does happen.

So to summarize:
1.) Pay attention to your situation and surroundings at all times.
2.) Act on any funny feelings you get to help keep bad things from happening
3.) Trust your instincts, as I said they were given to you for a reason, to help keep you out of danger.

Follow these simple steps to help develop your Spidey Sense…

...that is all.

  1. Step 4) Get off of your damned cell phone. Being on a cell phone, or nose down in a smart phone, marks you as prey and virtually assures you ARE NOT aware of your surroundings.

    Great post Flea!

  2. Excellent post. It costs nothing to do this and it can save infinite trouble, if not your life.

    If you have sheeple in the clan as we do, remind them when they whine about paranoia and how "nothing ever happens," this means that your awareness is paying off. You are only paranoid in doing this if, in fact, no innocent has ever been injured or died in your town just by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

  3. This is what my old Drill Sarge use to call,"Stay alert, Stay alive."

    If people put their head on a swivel more often then when some joker comes up to rob them or just approach them, they will see it happen. This is sometimes the only thing you need to do to prevent from being a statistic. For bad guy like the element of surprise, and if you remove that then they will move to easier targets.

  4. Sometimes paying attention now, means you don't have to pay the piper later!

    Like you said, that instinct was given to us for reason...use it!

    Good post!

  5. You're right people can "sense" danger. We know when the situation can turn bad and it's at that point we need to back up and turn around.

  6. I had a recent example of this. Had that feeling one night about 1230, So I looked out the window and saw someone walking around in my back yard by my shed.

    He did not stick around when I came outside with my shotgun. The guy looked like OJ at the airport when he unassed my AO over our fence.

  7. My "spidey sense" is telling me to get outta dodge. Soon....
