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.

Mission Impossible: Squirrel Conquers a Difficult Obstacle Course for Food

It was a dangerous obstacle, but they had their eyes set on the prize.

By

Squirrels are mammals that can grow from 5 to 36 inches in size. According to the National Geographic, there are at least 200 kinds of these animals around the world, except in Australia. They prefer to be alone although, from time to time, they leave the safety and security of their habitats to search for food.

These jittery creatures are generally omnivores. They enjoy nibbling on nuts, acorns, berries, eggs, and baby birds amongst others. Some of them also risk everything by invading bird feeders from backyards. They are cute indeed unlike rodents, but some people find them annoying.

To see if he could just feed birds and not squirrels, The Mad Inkeeper set up an obstacle course composed of wheels and slippery tubes high above the ground.

Do you think it stopped them from reaching the tube filled with sumptuous treats?...

Japan Railways Build Special Tunnels So Turtles Can Cross Safely

Ever wondered how turtles cross to train tracks? We had no idea ourselves until we were told of them ingenious turtle tunnels.

We’re all pretty much aware that Japan can come up with just about anything cute, funny, and OMG-inducing stuff. Once again, they did just that with the creation of...wait for it... turtle tunnels. We know a lot of you would be scratching your heads to this new invention of the Japanese.

Apparently, turtles in Japan like to cross train tracks a lot. Who knew that, right? Anyway, we all know how slow they move, so whenever they cross the train tracks, they are inevitably prone to getting into an accident (or causing one as well). In order to avoid the turtles from getting squished by the bullet trains, some Japanese railroad companies decided to build turtle tunnels where these animals can cross without getting themselves hurt. These turtle tunnels were built right under the train tracks for the turtles to use.

There were a number of times when it was reported that turtles got stuck in between the train rails, thereby causing a major problem when it is time to switch tracks. It has caused a number of delays for the people commuting and there have been a number of turtle deaths as well. Since Japanese companies take this kind of matter seriously, the West Japan Railroad Company partnered with Suma Aqualife Park in Kobe to come up with the turtle tunnel. Both companies agreed on a design and installed the tunnels where the turtles can pass safely through without causing any issues for the trains and the animals....
