How To: Rock Candy Recommended by Rangel

Wrong Rangel.You can also substitute the string for a stick to make some like this to be more pleasing to Governor Francisco Rangel.Last month, Governor Francisco Rangel of Venezuela’s Bolívar Region said that contrary to popular belief, his fellow countrymen weren’t affected by the havoc of mass (somewhere in the ballpark of 200%) inflation and they certainly weren’t by any means starving---not as long as rocks and sticks are still in good supply.

How To: Handle a Shark Attack

Only trying to help...Mr. Chomper...or is it Mrs.?Statistically the likelihood of you ending up a shark appetizer the moment you wade into the water is pretty low, but in a world of Murphy’s Law and Donald Trump still being in the 2016 running, anything can happen.

Don’t worry though (well, probably worry about 2017), because as always PD has you covered.

Good Springs.Do not die for sand dunes, even the Kelso ones pictured here.With the recent heatstroke deaths of a French mother and father and the fortunate rescue of their young son at New Mexico’s White Sands National Monument, the PD staff wanted to, much in the same vein as our piece on surviving floods, layout some tips for walking during the worst of Summer’s sun.

Summer Solution: Keep the Snakes at Bay

Cold blooded, right?Is it wrong to say that this guy would make a great purse?Thinking of taking a summer trip to the killing fields of Cambodia Ceylon Sri Lanka and worried about bunking with a viper or two?

Nervous that while laying out, upping your tan factor, a friendly rattler or coral snake might treat you to an impromptu back massage?

Summertime Solutions: Freeing Yourself from Ants

Same for ants.The ants go marching 2 million by 2 million.We’ve all been there. It’s a gorgeous summer day. As you breathe in a deep breath of sunshine and minimum exhaust, you feel a sting on your left ankle, and looking down you see your silent assassins making their pilgrimage up your newly christened Charlotte Olympia Meredith wedges.

Mardi Gras Clean Up

Yet another good use for coffee grounds. Grab a slice of king cake and some coffee. Worried about the Mardi Gras aftermath come tomorrow morning, as you head out for your Wednesday ashes with a hangover that resembles the Bubonic Plague? Does the thought of cleaning up the pre-chewed culinary display outside your door on an already angry stomach, strike you as worse than a day at Gitmo?

Don’t stress, as always PD’s got you covered.
