Many airports have carpets in their gate areas. This nicety usually comes with a few other perks: lower ceilings, comfortable seats, and pleasant, natural lighting. All this costs more for airports, and carpets are not as easy to clean as hard floors are, but they create a cozy feeling for passengers waiting for their flight, making them more relaxed. Still, it isn’t just a gesture of goodwill on the part of airports: according to social research, calm passengers are about 7-10% more likely to go window shopping and actually buy something in the lounge area or duty-free zone. So by investing in the passengers’ comfort, airports actually increase their own income.

Start Carrying a Crayon in Your Wallet, Here’s Why

Planning a trip? Make sure you have the essentials in your wallet. Your ID, bank cards, a crayon, foreign currency... Wait, a crayon? Yup, you heard right. Some avid travelers swear by always keeping a crayon inside their wallets. Here’s why.Crayons can always write. If you need a writing utensil, they don’t need to be sharpened, and they never run out of ink. If you drop a pencil, the lead inside usually breaks, making it impossible to get that satisfying sharp point ever again. Traveling with one could jostle it a lot, meaning you’ll need to be sharpening, and sharpening, and sharpening. Pens and planes... not a great match. The rapidly changing air pressure in the cabin can cause your pen to burst, oozing ink onto all your belongings.

The plane had been in the air for a mere 25 seconds when the pilots noticed weird noises and bizarre vibrations. They tried several ways to improve the situation, but nothing worked. The engine surges continued. And just over a minute into the flight, when the plane reached 3,000 feet, both engines failed: first, the right one; two seconds later, the left one. The pilots decided to return to the airport they had just left. At the same time, they tried to restart the engines. Nothing seemed to work. The flight crew made a decision to pitch the plane down and then level it off. Perhaps it could help them gain some speed for the glide! But soon, they realized they wouldn’t make it to the airport. Was the plane going to crash?! That’s when the Miracle at Gottröra occurred.

Life is a rollercoaster, and some days it seems like the universe just can’t help but mess with you. We’ve all been there — those days when you wake up and from the very start, everything seems to go haywire. You spill your morning coffee, miss the bus by a split second, and then you step into a puddle that seemingly came out of nowhere. It’s as if the universe decided to play a prank on you, and you’re left wondering if you accidentally walked under a ladder while breaking a mirror.If you’ve ever had one of those days, you’re definitely not alone. In fact, there’s a whole club of “unluckiest people” who have taken to the internet to share their hilarious tales of woe. These are the 21 people who prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that sometimes it’s just not your day.Take Sarah, for instance. She was all dressed up for a job interview that she’d been preparing for weeks. Everything was perfect — until a bird decided to use her freshly styled hair as target practice. Or think about poor Mark, who managed to lock himself out of his apartment not once, but twice in the same day. It’s almost impressive how life finds new and inventive ways to keep him out.Then there’s Lily, whose quest for a healthy lifestyle took a hilarious turn when she slipped on a banana peel while jogging. Yes, you read that right — a literal banana peel. It’s like something out of a classic slapstick comedy. And let’s not forget about Alex, who managed to send a text to his boss about how much he hated his job... only to realize he sent it to his boss instead of his friend.But it’s not just individual tales of misfortune that make these stories so relatable — it’s the collective “I’ve been there” nod they inspire. Who hasn’t experienced the sheer frustration of waiting for an important call, only for your phone to die at the exact moment it starts ringing? Or how about that moment when you drop your toast and it lands butter-side down, defying all laws of probability?These stories remind us that life doesn’t always have to be taken seriously. Sometimes, all you can do is laugh at the absurdity of it all. Sure, getting caught in the rain without an umbrella is a hassle, but it’s also an opportunity to dance like nobody’s watching. And yes, accidentally using salt instead of sugar in your coffee is a taste bud nightmare, but it’s also a chance to embrace the unexpected.In a world that often feels like it’s spinning out of control, these tales of everyday misadventures serve as a reminder that we’re all in this together. They bridge the gap between strangers, uniting us through shared experiences of spilled drinks and wardrobe malfunctions. They remind us that perfection is overrated and that the unplanned moments are often the ones that make the best stories.So, the next time you find yourself slipping on a banana peel or realizing you’ve been wearing your shirt inside out all day, take a deep breath and join the club of the “unluckiest.” Embrace the chaos, roll with the punches, and know that you’re not alone in your quest to navigate the hilariously unpredictable journey called life. After all, we’re all just 21 people in a world full of unplanned moments, proving that sometimes, it’s just not our day — and that’s perfectly okay.

It seems strange that a commercial jet doesn’t have keys to turn it on! But it’s a bit more complicated than just turning a key. Instead, there’s a series of buttons and dials on the control board that starts the complicated process. A battery provides the power to the aircraft that is charged through a small electric generator within the jet’s tail. Airflow gets in and moves into the jet’s engines to keep them cool. A reserve power then warms the turbines by turning them slowly until they start spinning at the right rate. Then, the engines can be turned on, one at a time. With up to 4 engines on a commercial jet, this entire process can take up to 90 minutes!
