You Should Never Post Online or Throw Away Your Airport Boarding Pass. Here’s Why.

Remember to keep your boarding pass in a safe place, or else…

During our flight, we need to take good care of our passports and boarding pass as these are among the most important things that we will need upon boarding. And while we consider a boarding pass an important component of our sojourn, we treat this piece of paper differently. Some people are so excited about the travel that they take pictures of their boarding pass and post in online. There are also some people who throw the boarding pass away while others leave it on their seats.

A boarding pass is just a piece of card that contains the name of the passenger, flight number, destination, seat number, and gate number so after the flight, most people think that throwing it anywhere, misplacing it, or even taking pictures of it is harmless.

But did you know that a boarding pass must be taken care of even after boarding? Winston Krone, a forensic expert, explained that a boarding pass has a bar code that contains the passenger’s personal information such as the name, home address, email address, and contact number. As such, a hacker can easily gain access to your personal information as well as financial details.

You might be wondering how your personal information can be seen in a boarding pass. This is how it happens. Once the bar code in the boarding pass is placed in a bar code reader, all the passenger’s information contained in that bar code is revealed; and this precious information is can be used by hackers or thieves.

Make sure that you keep your boarding pass safe before, during, and after the flight, and that you tear it down to pieces before throwing it away so nobody can gain access to the bar code.

It’s also safer not to take pictures and post online photos of your boarding pass. With the advanced technology that we have today, you can never be too sure. Who knows, your personal information may be acquired with a few swipes and a few clicks. For more detailed information, please watch the video.

Why Sin Eating Was Once The Worst Job In The World

Technically, it was a thankless job.

If you think you are unfortunate for having to hold on to a job that you think sucks, bear in mind that at one point in history, there were people who went the extent of risking their salvation just for money. For the so-called Sin Eaters then, it did not matter if they had to suffer eternal damnation in hell for as long they could eat and have some coins in their pockets.

While a Sin Eater is already a thing of the past, there is no questioning that it held the notion as being the worst job in England, Scotland, and Wales where it was practiced from the Middle Ages until the early 1900s. You see, a Sin Eater had to eat a piece of bread placed on the chest of a dying person, otherwise known as a sin-soaked bread, while the family of the would-be departing person watched, prayed, and drank a flagon of ale.

By eating the sin-soaked bread, it was believed then that a Sin Eater could absolve the dying person from his sins, and his chances of entering heaven would improve.

Touching Plane Crash Memorial Site Spotted via Google Maps

The incident claimed 170 lives and its memorial is beautifully haunting.

On September 19, 1989, international passenger plane UTA Flight 772 was en route from Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo to the Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris. Tragically, the aircraft never made it to its destination as a bomb in the cargo hold blew up, causing it to break up over the Sahara desert.

The explosion, which later became known as the deadliest plane-related incidents in Niger, claimed the lives of all the 156 passengers and 14 crew members. French investigators later confirmed that it was an attack by Libyan terrorists.

Fast forward to 2007, Les Familles de l’Attentat du DC-10 d’UTA, an associated of the victims’ families, created a beautiful memorial for their departed loved ones. Now the said memorial is visible via Google Maps and Google Earth.
