Is 'This statement is false' true or false

If the statement is false, then "This statement is false", is a lie, making it "This statement is true." The statement is now true.

You are caught in a severe storm in your boat What should you do

1. Slow down the boat. Higher speeds can damage the structure of the boat in choppy water. Turn the boat so that it is facing into the waves as this is the most stable position for any boat. Turn on your lights and sound your horn (if fitted) every 30 seconds or so incase someone is nearby.

2. Lower your boat's centre of gravity. This means find all the heaviest stuff on the boat and dump it as close to the bottom as you can. This will reduce the likelyhood of your boat rolling over.

3. If you know exactly which way to travel to make it to shore, then slowly make your way there. If you don't know EXACTLY where you are or where to go then try to keep the boat in one spot. You may accidently run your boat into an obstacle.

4. If you have an emergency signaling device (such as a radio transmitter) then activate that now, calling for emergency assistance from rescue teams.
