Could the Alcatraz escapees have survived?

Even though the 62' Escape trio was officially believed to have drowned, several factors have concluded that they could have survived. For example, in 1962, John Paul Scott escaped from the prison and swam successfully to the shore around Fort Point. Might I add that he nearly died from the severe shock from the cold water. He was later taken from the hospital and returned to Alcatraz. Also, in an episode of Myth Busters, it was confirmed that the party of 3 could successfully row a makeshift raft to the shores of the Marin Headlands. So yes, it is entirely possible that the escapees could have survived.

What should you do if you have a locked up garbage disposal?

First, turn off the power. Then, remove any objects inside the disposal. Things that usually get caught are chicken skin, bones, mashed potatoes, celery and so on. If that does not work, use a broomstick to try to unstick the blades so that they move. Then turn on the power and the reset on the disposal.

New Answer HeadlineDo not hand turn the blades. There should be a hole underneath the unit, you can turn the blades there with an Allen wrench. If this does not work, take a flash light and look for any objects that may prevent the blades from turning. If you have small hands you can reach in (with power disconnected) and remove objects.

How does occupation affect lifespan?

Answer to occupation affecting lifespan If you are working shift work, or 2nd or 3rd shift, you end up changing your sleep-wake cycle which inturn contributes to varoius medical conditions. Also, stress at work will increase your risk for cardiovascular issues. Hypertension, heart attack, stroke. If you are not able to "let go of work" by the time you get home, you need to find a way. If your job takes alot of your time, your time to exercise gets less and less. Exercise is usually the first thing to be cut out of someone's daily routine. Another large factor in your occupation affecting your lifespan is in your diet. It is easier to grab fast food with shift work versus fixing a healthy meal.
