    Anything you've seen on TV and reckon you could do easily in real life.

  6. I think it’s been proven that even in a plane with fancy fly-by-wire, ILS, etc...the average punter still manages to crash them. Sorry.
     
  7. Ride a super bike around silver stone...
     
  8. I did first responder training a few years ago - so yes it must be easy

  12. 'Fraid so. You could however walk down the aisle with a trolley saying "Tea or coffee?", which is relatively safe.

    That sounds like the queue at Waitrose when they run out of the complimentary coffee....that and Zimmer frames, posh wellies and people using the keys of a Volvo as a blunt force instrument.


    Not that I of course know, being a Tesco shopper and thus a man of the people.

    We’ve just fitted one on the wall of our office as a public access defib , apparently they don’t work if it doesn’t detect a pulse in the first place , there has to be a weak pulse otherwise it won’t work - doesn’t sound right to me , I think we’re having some training soon so I’ll ask
     

  19. We had a weekend break in Budapest last year, happened to be the Budapest marathon route right in front of the hotel.

    A middle aged man dropped like a stone right in front of our window and we watched a calamitous attempt to resuscitate him, with the first aid responders unsure what to do with the defib. Paramedics eventually arrived but it was too late. They put him in the back of the ambulance and left him there whilst they had a cigarette and then finally left, but the ambulance wouldn't start, so they had to bump start it.

    Apparently the majority of defib use outside a hospital environment is unsuccessful.
