If an apocalyptic event strikes, you should run to the nearest golf course or supermarket – and remember to take some Vaseline with you.
That’s according to astrobiologist Dr Lewis Dartnell.
The expert has created an apocalyptic survival guide that includes the essential items you must pack and the most important skills to learn before disaster strikes.
Dr Darnell created the guide after a poll discovered that few people know how to prepare for the worse.
For example, food, medical supplies and mobile phones topped people’s lists of what to grab as they run from home in the event of an emergency.
HOW TO SURVIVE AN APOCALYPSE
The eight most important skills to know include making metal tools, preserving food, making chemicals, making things from wood, basic first aid, growing crops, making clothes and getting engines and machines to work.
Take a fire starting kit, strong twine, food for a few days, a small knife and a bottle along with some water purification tablets.
The five best places to go are a beach, the vets, a hospital, a supermarket or golf course.
When you get there, the five most important things to be able to make are electricity, soap, charcoal, a lathe to craft things with, and glass.
But fewer people recognised the importance of taking matches or a simple bottle, which could be used to disinfect water.
Dartnell continued that a fire-starting kit, water bottle, small knife, rope and food should all make the list.
While the five most important things to be able to make are electricity, soap, charcoal, a lathe to craft things with, and glass, the expert explained.
Once disaster has struck, though, Dr Dartnell claims people should to head to the beach, the supermarket or a golf course for help rebuild society.
The average supermarket is estimated to be able to keep someone alive for 55 years and the rechargeable batteries in golf buggies could be used to store generated electricity.
