or How to Break Out of a Maximum Security Prison

This would be based on documented escapes, floor plans, theoretical escape routes, near-escapes, using well known prisons as examples. 

Chapters (not in any order):

  1. Bribery – of other inmates and staff.  (Money, drugs, sexual favors…)
  2. General Do’s and Dont’s – don’t kill anyone unnecessarily, and don’t tell anyone what you’re up to unless you trust them.  Join a gang for protection.
  3. How to fashion tools and weapons from everyday objects (including hardness charts of various materials, so you know if it’s even possible to use a stainless steel spoon to dig through poured concrete )
  4. Layouts of well-known prisons (based on blue prints, inmate sketches, aerial photos…)
  5. What to say if you’re caught in the act
  6. Don’t be discouraged if you fail the first time (and get thrown into solitary)
  7. How to self-inflict a serious but non-fatal injury and get taken to a hospital
  8. How to escape from guarded hospitals
  9. Cryptography, and how to encode messages (to other inmates and through mail/e-mail)
  10. How to make money selling drugs, booze, and cigarettes

While You’re On The Lam: 

  1. Edible plants
  2. How to purify stream water
  3. How to catch wild animals, clean, and eat them
  4. General boy-scout type stuff
  5. How to avoid detection by infrared cameras (think Predator)
  6. What to say and not say to a beat-cop who asks you for your ID.
  7. How to establish a new identity
  8. How to steal someone else’s


 Sorry, no awesome drawing for this one.
