10 Things You Didn’t Know About Flight Attendants

How to Get the Most out of Your Flight. Maybe you love to travel by plane, or maybe just the idea makes you clench your teeth in terror, but we bet you didn’t know all of this. It’s time to ask the experts who fly all the time: flight attendants to reveal their secrets and tips on how to make your flight more comfortable and safe.
Many of us consider ourselves experts at navigating departures, flights, and takeoffs almost as naturally as we get out of bed in the morning or take a walk around the block. But however experienced you are, learning some of these insights about airplanes can make your flights more pleasant. It might also make the experience better for the pilot and crew of flight attendants who have to do this all day, every day.

TIMESTAMPS
All-male crews are a thing of the past. 1:21
Not waiters, but captain’s assistants! 2:36
The crew is just as frustrated as you are. 3:25
Don’t sleep during takeoff or landing. 4:05
Sleeping when cruising is a great idea. 5:13
Chicken or fish? 5:47
Follow instructions — or else! 6:42
Sit toward the back. 7:45
Rely on your flight attendants. 8:49
Flying tips straight from the pros! 9:18

Music:


SUMMARY
-Before 1930, the crews of airplanes were 100% male, including the pilot, ground crew, and all of the flight attendants. Over a hundred years, the gender roles reversed, and many now see this as a primarily female profession.
-In reality, a flight attendant’s job is to assist the captain by managing the cabin during a flight.
-Airline crews are typically paid by the hour, but only the hours spent in actual flight are paid. A flight doesn’t actually start until the door is closed.
-Experienced flight attendants recommend avoiding falling asleep on take-off, descent, and landing. Not only will you not be attentive during these dangerous parts of the flight, but it can impinge on your comfort.
-Attendants encourage passengers to sleep on night flights, deliberately delaying food service to let people fall asleep.
-Some flight attendants use a trick to get more people to choose the fish: they say that the fish is a “special” from the “chef,” reserved exclusively for this flight.
-Some airlines supply their flight attendants with tasers to deal with passengers who don’t comply. Safety is very important on planes, and they’ve got to be able to control a situation.
-Especially if you’re a nervous flier, you’ll be pleased to know that the back seats tend to be far safer, statistically speaking.
-Flight attendants are trained in first aid and CPR. They can treat small wounds, assess symptoms of common traveler illnesses, and even deliver babies in-flight.
-Never take your shoes off on a plane. Lots of passengers use fold-down tables for all sorts of things: as writing surfaces, pillows (with drool-catching action!), or places to change a baby. Use antibacterial disinfectant, and clean the tray for your own safety. Flight attendants have very little free time during a flight. If you’re thirsty, rather than pressing the call button, consider going up to them to ask for a glass of water.

10 Flight Attendant Secrets You Don’t Know About

A plane in the eyes of flight attendants and a plane in the eyes of passengers are two completely different worlds. We often have no idea about some secrets that the crew is hiding.
Here are ten tips from flight attendants on how to get the maximum comfort in a plane. Pay attention to fact number 10: doing this, you actually insult air hostesses!

TIMESTAMPS
You’re allowed to ask for more food 0:33
Check the presence of a life vest before taking off 1:00
If you accidentally smoked, use the ashtrays 1:37
Don’t be squeamish during the flight 2:04
The lavatory door can be opened from the outside 2:38
Be the last person to board 3:02
Avoid too much alcohol 3:29
Avoid the bulkhead seats 3:51
Drink only bottled water 4:13
Don’t applaud at the end of flight 4:48

SUMMARY
- All excess containers with food are immediately discarded after the flight. Therefore, if your stomach demands more, don’t be ashamed to ask a flight attendant for another serving.
- For safety reasons, always check your seat before the flight to make sure the life vest is there and not stolen by some sentimental kleptomaniac.
- If you suddenly find yourself in the lavatory with a cigarette in your hand, at least use the ashtray. And then pay the fine.
- Blankets and pillows aren’t washed, just refolded. Food trays aren’t washed. The seat trays are wiped, the carpets are cleaned, but you cannot be sure there wasn’t a passenger in your seat who suddenly felt sick.
- Many aircraft have the door lock mechanism itself installed under the No Smoking sign on the toilet door. If you raise the flap with the cigarette image and turn the bolt, the door will open.
- If you and your fellow traveler checked in at a different time, there’s a solution: just board last. When all the passengers take their seats, you can immediately see which seats are free. 
- Flight attendants warn that one glass in the sky is equal to two on the ground. And it's true since altitude affects blood in such a way that alcohol during a flight affects you much more than on the ground.
- If there are passengers with babies onboard, they’ll most likely take the bulkhead seats. This happens because it’s easier and safer to place a baby carrier there. 
- It’s better to drink only bottled liquid onboard. You should avoid tea, coffee, and water from the sink.
- The flight is not a roulette game; this is their job. People who travel a lot know this and don't clap as much.

9 Secrets Airport Staff Don't Want You to Know

Only the people working at airports know how things really go down there, and they have many secrets they don’t want you to know. We’re about to change that and reveal 9 surprising truthful facts from airport world every traveler will like to know.
Passengers’ most private “bits” that they would prefer to keep hidden are clearly displayed on the screen of powerful “naked scanners” at some airports. If it makes you feel any better, security personnel are obliged to destroy these images as soon as they’ve made sure that a person doesn't present any threat.
Most airports have specific experts called profilers. These people practice what’s called SPOT, or the Screening Passengers by Observation Technique. Their job is to notice the non-verbal signs of anxiety, such as people licking their lips, itching, or looking around a lot. Special cameras that perform a similar task transmit the information to a computer and, in cases of dangerous levels of aggression, the suspect will be stopped by airport security for a detailed inspection.
Before your luggage gets on the plane, it goes through five security levels, and one of them (besides scanning the contents) includes being checked by a special dog that can sniff out drugs or other dangerous chemicals.
The menu for your flight is developed up to a year in advance to plan its budget and save money. In fact, American Airlines managed to save $40,000 after they removed just one olive from every salad they served on their flights.
One dispatcher has about five monitors, and the information on them is constantly changing since the monitors show weather conditions and information about other planes.
Airport staff have to foot the bill for the tickets of passengers who have invalid visas or no visa at all and can’t be allowed into a foreign country. That's why the people at the check-in counters make sure you have a valid visa to the country of your destination because nobody wants to pay for your flight.

Music:


TIMESTAMPS
They see us naked. 0:36
They’re specially trained to analyze “off” behavior. 2:10
They know how aggressive you are. 3:15
They have no idea what happens to your luggage once it leaves the airport. 4:07
They have dogs that check your bags. 5:18
Your food is cooked around the clock. 6:16
The airport controls the planes more than you’d think. 7:03
They most certainly will check the validity of your visa, no excuses. 7:44
They know what’s been in your hands. 8:20

SUMMARY
-Special scanners that require passengers to lift their arms up when going through them actually let airport security see you completely naked.
-“Profilers” work in both the main halls and in passport control and carefully analyze facial expressions, gestures, and behavior in order to detect suspicious people.
-In a lot of big airports, there are special cameras that can determine if a person is drunk or under the influence of drugs. And even more advanced imaging technology can detect a certain level of aggression.
-Baggage is sorted automatically: scanners scan the barcode and sort the baggage according to its destination. Airport staff don’t really care about where it goes and if it gets dirty on the way.
-Dogs distinguish smells from 10,000 to 100,000 times better than people do and work as one of the 5 security levels your luggage goes through.
-Giant airport kitchens work 24/7, and the menu for your flight is developed up to a year in advance.
-There are 3 types of air traffic controllers: en-route, terminal, and tower. Each of these dispatchers has their own specific area of responsibility.
-If the airport staff finds out that your visa has expired or you just don’t have one when you enter their country, you’ll be deported by the same airline that brought you there.
-Special “memorizing” machines can easily find traces of drugs or explosives on your hands.

10 Things You Should Never Wear on a Plane

How to make a journey by plane comfortable? What to wear on a plane and what to avoid? Here's 10 tips from flight attendants and travelers about things not to wear on a plane.

Whether you’re choosing an outfit for a short or a long-distance flight, it’s important that you feel comfortable while staying out of trouble at the same time. Watch it and figure out which clothes can put your journey to a halt right at the plane’s door!

Remember, you can totally make comfort look stylish! For example, a maxi dress paired with a denim jacket will look very fashionable, while simultaneously providing all the comfort you need.

TIMESTAMPS
Perfume 0:35
Tight clothes 1:19
Complicated items 2:16
Clothes or jewelry containing metal 2:49
Summer clothes 3:37
Contact lenses 4:34
High heels 5:05
T-shirts with offensive text 6:31
Itchy fabrics 7:44
Baggy clothes 8:21
How to dress for a journey by plane 9:12
BONUS 9:58

SUMMARY
- Avoid heavy perfumes for the sake of your fellow passengers. A prevailing number of people find scented products on others irritating, and there also could be people with allergies and asthma on the flight.
- Avoid tight clothing, especially when your flight is longer than 4 hours. People on a long-distance flight are at a risk of developing DVT (deep vein thrombosis).
- Clothes with a lot of buttons and zippers won't make your flight experience the most comfortable one.
- The best thing to do is to go for natural materials and take off any jewelry (even gold, which seems safe enough to wear) until you pass completely through security screening.
- It makes sense to have different layers of clothes – this way, you can always control how warmly you’re dressed. What is more, if your luggage is lost (we all know that the chances of this happening are quite high), you will always have a spare change of clothes.
- In an aircraft, the average humidity can get as low as 10-20%, and in extreme cases, it can drop down to 1 percent!
- Not only can heels potentially be used to store prohibited items, but they also contain an internal metal construction that will definitely set off the alarm. Nobody would enjoy standing barefoot on the airport floor.
- There have been people prohibited from boarding a plane because of the way they were dressed. The reasons can vary: too much cleavage, a low-cut dress, saggy pants, an offensive T-shirt, bare feet, or even leggings while flying on an airline's employee pass.
- avoid itchy and scratchy clothes - they will definitely become a bother on the flight. The thing is, hot and cold temperature fluctuations on a plane make your skin very sensitive.
- Tracy Edwards, who works for AAA Travel Sales, says that if you want to pass through security quickly, you should avoid loose-fitting clothes. There is a one hundred percent chance that you will be stopped for additional screening because you’ll look like you’re hiding something under your huge hoodie.

Check the airline’s dress code.
Such a policy can be found on their website. If your dream isn't to become famous for being kicked off a plane because of your leggings, study it carefully. By the way, that last example with the leggings is based on a real story. It happened to 2 teenage girls flying with United Airlines. They missed their flight since their leggings failed to comply with the dress code of the airline!

The Way Airports Make a Lot of Money

How do airports make money? We mean big money. Go behind the scenes to learn the sneaky ways airports are cashing in big time — and it’s not all from those irresistible Cinnabons on every corner.

Take London’s Heathrow Airport. It runs entirely on profit and is a money-making machine, making most of its dough from passengers. Nearly 650 flights come in and out of this airport daily. How many passengers is that a year, you ask? A whopping 78 million! And it takes 1,485,650,000 bucks to run a commercial airport like Heathrow!

Parking services 3:47
Landing and departure fees 4:08
Baggage fees 6:14
How to save money during your travels 7:18

Music by Epidemic Sound

SUMMARY:
- To break even, Heathrow would have to receive 19 bucks per passenger, but this money doesn’t just come from the ticket they buy. This $19 also accounts for how much money a passenger spends on baggage and other airport services.
- One of the tricks the airports use is not announcing flight gate numbers until 45 to 90 minutes before the plane takes off. That way, people congregate in these middle areas between shops as they wait to find out their gate number.
- Ever notice that there are rental car parking lots and other clumps of shops close to the airport? These places experience lots of business thanks to the airport. Because of this, airports can cash in on the land leases these places occupy.
- If you can’t get one of your friends to drop you off at the airport, you may very well have to pay to leave your car there over the course of your trip. These attached lots typically charge you per night, and it can add up pretty fast.
- Airports make a lot of their money from the flights that land there. Typically, airlines pay airports $9,500 per flight to land, but this amount can vary depending on the size and type of aircraft.
- As if the baggage fees weren’t enough, passengers also face a wide array of fees once they’re on their flight: movies, meals, and drinks.
- According to a recent study by consulting firm IdeaWorksCompany and CarTrawler, a whopping $57 million in fees was made by US airlines in 2017. That same year, $82 billion was made in baggage fees on a global level.
- Bring an extra fluffy jacket to serve as a pillow on the flight so you don’t have to buy one that you’ll end up returning at the end of the flight.
- As long as it’s within the airport’s security requirements, pack a sandwich or a snack to save yourself that extra 20 bucks.
- In-flight entertainment can cost you. Some airlines offer it for free, but you’ll usually have to pay for movies or cable TV. Instead, download a movie or 2 from Netflix onto your computer before you leave.

21 Things You Should Never Do On An Airplane

Never do these 21 things when on an airplane. This is according to Flight attendants and will be useful to know before your next flight.

#AirTravel #Airlines #TravelTips

Music:


Summary:
Wondering what a day in the life of a flight attendant on certain airlines is like, or what it’s like for a stewardess to serve people on first class? Well, traveling the world on the company’s dime may be the biggest draw for working as an air hostess, but there are a number of other benefits that make a career above the clouds an attractive one. From flexible work schedules to generous family discounts to traveling the world, it’s no surprise that many people flock at the chance to become part of a cabin crew. However, just like any job, there are grievances that can plague the profession, and sometimes it’s the passengers who are at fault.

Anyone who has worked in a customer service role knows that people can be unruly and the taxing nature of traveling can truly bring out the worst of them. We contacted a few flight attendants to find out what passengers regularly do that make their job a nightmare in the sky.

Pilots Reveal 16 Nuances That Make Your Flight Safe

How to Travel when Flying on a Plane? You’ll get some pretty unexpected and useful insider-knowledge directly from different airline crew members. We'd like to share them with you before you set forth on your next trip!

Each profession has its own tricks of the trade that aren’t usually shared with anyone outside the professional circle. Aviation has always been a fascinating and mysterious line of work, and this makes it even more interesting to learn about all the secrets that we aviation outsiders have no idea about. If you’ve never heard of at least one of these facts, hit that “like” button!

TIMESTAMPS
Pilots are prohibited from having a beard 0:44
It's cold on planes for the sake of your health 1:14
Planes never fly in straight lines 1:46
It's better to wear sturdy shoes on a flight 2:33
Pilots and dispatchers aren’t always formal with each other 3:15
The average person will never manage to land a plane 3:42
Flights delays affect not only passengers but flight attendants as well 4:26
Pilots have to take turns going to the bathroom 4:50
Airplane food is bad, and nobody’s to blame for it 5:27
Comfortable clothes help you stay healthy 6:14
Pilots communicate with flight attendants through a bulletproof door 6:38
The smoothest place to sit is over or near the wing 7:28
There’s a secret signal if the plane has been hijacked 7:56
A hard landing is sometimes done on purpose 8:14
Cabin lights are dimmed during a nighttime landing for a reason 8:50
There’s only 15 minutes worth of oxygen in the masks 9:15

SUMMARY
- Some airlines forbid their pilots from having beards. The reasoning behind this is that a beard can prevent an oxygen mask from securing to the face tightly in the event of an emergency situation.
- If the air in the cabin is too warm, it can trigger this problem, so that's why the air temperature is kept cool.
- Why curved lines? That’s because the Earth is round, but the map on the screen is flat. But what’s the zigzagging all about? That’s due to special flight regulations requiring pilots to stick to certain routes in order to have enough time to reach an airport in case of an emergency landing.
- Take it from experienced flight crews from around the world: they beg you to leave your backless sandals and high heels at home and go for sturdier shoes.
- There’s a tradition that dispatchers congratulate pilots on all holidays. Just imagine: around Christmas time, a pilot can have up to 4 flights a day, which means about 2,000 people wishing them a Merry Christmas.
- Even if someone is a genius, hooked on realistic flight simulators, or ready and willing to follow all the instructions from ground control, he’s still likely to fail due to one simple thing: stress!
- Flight attendants are paid only for in-flight hours. Time spent on the ground doesn’t count. The only thing that airlines offer is a small allowance for every hour spent at the airport.
- When one pilot needs to use the restroom, a flight attendant must join the other pilot in the cockpit and wait until the first one returns from his bathroom break.
- Tasteless airplane food is nobody’s fault but science. At high altitudes, our taste buds and sense of smell can play tricks on us.
- When on a plane, go for comfortable clothes with breathable fabrics. It’ll help you tremendously when you’re trying to fall asleep.
- Did you know that the door to the cockpit is bulletproof? It’s true! It’s designed to stop bullets and even small grenades.
- The freshest air is near the front of the plane, and the warmest temperature in the back.
- Pilots give a special signal to the airport when they’re landing: they leave the plane’s wing flaps up. It’s one of the ways to show that there’s something bad happening on the plane.
- When you experience a hard landing in bad weather, it doesn’t mean that the pilot is a newbie or lacks the know-how. In fact, sometimes they do it intentionally.
- Dimming the cabin lights helps passengers’ eyes adjust from the bright light of the cabin to the dim nighttime light on the ground.
- There’s only enough oxygen in the masks for just a quarter of an hour, but you shouldn't panic. This is plenty of time for the pilot to take the plane to a lower altitude where you can breathe normally.

29 Items You Cannot Take in a Carryon Bag (on an Airplane)

The Transportation Security Administration created a list of items you Cannot Bring in Carryon Bag for airplane travel. Since I am in an airline family, subscribers ask me all the time what is allowed on the airplane when you #travel. So this video includes 29 items you should not pack in the carryon suitcase that will go through the scanner with you and into the terminal and above your head on the airplane. When I say carryon bags, I am talking about the personal items bag that will go under your airplane seat (backpack, purse, duffel bag) and the one that will go above your head (overhead bins) inside the airplane. This video is about 29 things you cannot bring in those carryon bags.
Bug spray - The grocery stores make it look like you can can bring bug spray because they create cans that are less than 3.4 ounces. But the cans of liquid bug spray are not allowed. We use and recommend this Sunsect bug repellent and sunscreen lotion. It’s small enough and isn’t a spray liquid.
**Alcohol can go in checked or #carryon bags. I was reading a wrong list.
***Lithium batteries are different nowadays so check with tsa.gov or your airline.

Tell the #TSA officer if you have diabetes and that you have the insulin with you. Insulin must be clearly identified as insulin for carryons.

Why Heathrow Airport Had Ghost Flights to Nowhere

When you hear the word “airport”, you most likely think of a hustling bustling place filled to the brim with anxious and excited people. It’s certainly the case for one of the busiest airports in the world.
Yet, for quite a while, it had completely empty flights taking off and landing on one of its runways.

TIMESTAMPS:
What airport are we talking about? 1:23
Why it’s the world’s busiest airport 1:31
What a slot pair is 2:18
How much it costs 2:50
In what case slots can be confiscated 3:41
Why the flights had to be absolutely empty 4:45

Music:

SUMMARY:
- We’re talking about Heathrow Airport in London, probably one of the most famous airports in the world. It only has 2 runways, yet it’s the world’s busiest airport of its kind, with planes taking off and landing every 45 seconds.
- To be able to take off and land there, an airline needs to buy a slot pair. A slot pair is basically a golden ticket, or permission to operate flights to and from a certain airport at a certain time.
- Oman Air had to pay $75 million for one of theirs. This was the price to land their planes at Heathrow at 6:30 AM and take off at 8:25 AM, which is probably the most popular timing for overnight flights from the US and Asia.
- Air traffic rules and regulations require airlines to use their slots 80% of the time; otherwise, they’ll be confiscated. When that happens, the slot transfers to the next airline on the waiting list.
- Operating passenger flights is more than just buying an aircraft and hiring the flight crew. Airlines also have to hire gate agents, make contracts with baggage handlers, and pay for other services to be able to actually fly people places.
- In 2004, Qantas Airlines purchased two slot pairs from FlyBe. The deal cost them $25 million, but they couldn’t arrange flights to their native Australia straight away. It’s pretty hard organizing those given the distance and the fact that they’d also have to go through Singapore. So, they had to find a solution to keep their slot pairs.
- It seems like ghost flights are now history, yet airlines still have to make adjustments to their schedules to keep their slots. For example, in the winter months, when fewer people tend to travel, they prefer cheaper and closer destinations.

What They Don't Tell You About Becoming A Flight Attendant

ABOUT //

I did not intend for this video to be soooo long! I just kept talking.... and talking..... and TALKING! I didn't realize I had so much to say on the topic, so much so, that I'm thinking about doing a part 2!

Like I said in the video, this was not made to discourage anyone from becoming a flight attendant, I just wanted to keep it 100% real with you all because these are things I wish I would have known while I was applying!

If you have ANY questions or comments, please leave them in the comment section below!

DISCLAIMER //

All of the advice and opinions in this video are solely mine. I do not represent the views of the company I work for any other company that may have been mentioned.

10 Little-Known Tricks for Perfect Sleep on a Flight

How to sleep easily on a plane? People who can easily fall asleep on a plane are among the lucky few because most of us aren’t able to doze off in a cramped space, sitting in such an uncomfortable position and surrounded by total strangers.
What if we told you there are some simple tricks that can help you catch some Z’s on board? Who knew that flying on a Tuesday or keeping your seat belt fastened could actually make a difference?

TIMESTAMPS
Night is the best time for a flight 0:34
The best days to fly are Tuesdays and Wednesdays 1:27
The perfect seat is by the window 2:16
Tilt your seat back to the max 3:17
Clothes should be warm and comfortable 3:58
Fasten your seat belt over your clothes 4:43
Get yourself some sleeping accessories 5:25
Control the scents around you 6:05
Put your gadgets away 6:59
Food and drinks 7:34

SUMMARY
- It’s great if you can pick a flight for the time you usually sleep at. Wake up 2-3 hours earlier on the day of your flight to help you fall asleep faster on board later on.
- If you want fewer passengers and more space, pick the most unpopular days for booking flights: Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as a rule. You might even get up to 3 seats to yourself!
- Always try to pick a window seat to rest your head on the wall and not be bothered by your neighbor wanting to get up to go to the bathroom. If you normally sleep on your left side, aim for seat A. If your right side is your preferred sleeping position, pick the window seat on the opposite side of the plane.
- If you want good quality sleep in the cabin, adjust your seat as far back as it’ll go. Just make sure the person behind you doesn’t mind.
- To have a sound nap onboard, you should wear loose clothes made of natural materials that don’t constrict your movements. If your airline doesn’t provide blankets, take a jacket and warm socks too.
- A seat belt fastened over your clothes or blanket won’t make your sleep more comfortable, but it will prevent flight attendants from waking you up if the plane experiences turbulence.
- Light and noise are the main culprits that keep you from getting needed shuteye. So this answer might be obvious: use a sleeping mask and earplugs!
- You can control the scents in your immediate surrounding. Just sprinkle the head rest or your travel pillow with some lavender oil or any other essential oil you like.
- Don’t watch movies on your phone, tablet, or laptop because the blue light of the screen wakes your brain up. Most sleep experts say you should put away all your electronics at least half an hour, or, better yet, an hour before you plan on dozing off.
- If you want to be fast asleep, don’t overeat onboard. The food should be light and healthy, while the best drink option is tea (the herbal variety is perfect) or just plain water.

20 Interesting Facts You're Too Lazy to Google

Why is the sky blue? Why aren’t there any more dinosaurs? Why do trees change colors? If you’ve been around kids long enough, you know the incessant barrage of questions that, as simple as they seem, often have you scratching your head. However, just because we grow up, it doesn’t mean that our curiosity about the world around us goes away.
If you’re ready to finally get the answers to the random questions that lie abandoned in the back of your brain, then you’ve tuned in to the right video!

TIMESTAMPS
Why do you get goosebumps? 1:00
Why does your voice sound different on a recording? 1:49
Why do you get a brain freeze from cold drinks or foods? 2:39
Why does the sun darken your skin yet lighten your hair? 3:28
Why does time pass more slowly for a child? 4:08
Why don't your eyeballs get cold when it's freezing out? 5:18
Why do your eyes close when sneeze? 5:41
Why don't city pigeons perch in trees? 6:28
Why is dust white against a black backdrop and black against a white one? 7:08
Why do raccoons wash their food? 7:37
Why do birds fly in V-formations? 8:06
Why do we yawn when we’re tired? 8:48
Why does a brook babble? 9:29
Why do you get motion sickness? 9:55
Why do clock hands move circularly? 10:42
Why is the ring finger used for blood tests? 11:29
Why did pirates wear eye patches? 12:15
Why do goats have rectangular pupils? 12:57
Why do you need to sleep? 13:39
Where does toilet waste go on a plane? 14:20

SUMMARY
- Goose bumps form when tiny muscles at the base of hair follicles contract. In the animal kingdom, this helps them warm up faster by standing each hair on end and creating a sort of insulation.
- Other people hear the soundwaves of your voice coming only through the air, and a recording also contains just these sounds. Yet the way we hear our own voices is a combination of the regular sounds and the low-frequency sounds conducted by the bones of our skulls.
- When something extremely cold touches the roof of your mouth, the nerve center located there tends to overreact.
- In both cases, the sun’s UV rays break down melanin, which is the pigment responsible for the color of your hair and skin. The difference is in the fact that hair is made up of dead cells while skin cells are alive.
- Kids are only starting to get acquainted with the world around them, and their memory has to collect more data. So their year contains more new and unfamiliar events than that of a grown-up.
- The pigeons hanging out in urban areas have developed a habit of settling on the rocky landscape where there are no trees. It means they didn’t inherit the tree-perching reflex of their rural or jungle relatives.
- Dust is actually gray, but the tiny size of its particles prevents us from seeing its true color.
- Dust is actually gray, but the tiny size of its particles prevents us from seeing its true color.
- When you sleep, it optimizes the synapses in your brain. What this means is that your memories solidify and the tidbits of information you’ve gotten throughout the day move from your short-term to your long-term memory.

9 Ways to Make your Flight Attendant Hate You

I promise I didn't quit my job disgruntled. Haha. Even though this series of installments might appear that I did. Here's a list of things that happen on the job that are normal (most of them anyway), but annoying.

10 Facts Movie Theaters Don't Want You to Know

We all love movie theaters for the special feeling they give with fantastic special effects, complete sound immersion and the taste of popcorn. Would you still love them just as much if you found out their secrets movie theater owners don’t want you to know? We’re going to unveil 10 movie theater secrets.
In cinemas, many people can’t always keep their feelings to themselves and that’s normal. For example, a movie about cannibals called Raw appeared to be too hard to watch for a couple of visitors at The Toronto International Film Festival in 2016. The people fainted and one of them hit his head badly during the fall.
Digital devices can do everything on their own, and there are more automatic processes at a cinema than there were during the previous century.
Keep it in mind that in case there are some problems with a projector (the image is blurred, not centered, etc.), you’ll have to stand up and go notify a staff member in the lobby.
20% of the population, including Johnny Depp himself, simply can’t perceive those three dimensions. Harvard Medical School neurobiology professor Dr. Margaret S. Livingstone explains it could be due to stereo-blindness when eyes can’t see in 3D because of the way they are aligned.
If you love cleanliness that much, try to visit the cinema in the morning and avoid going there on Friday and Saturday nights when a lot of other people go out to the movies.

Music:


TIMESTAMPS
The biggest part of the profit isn’t earned by ticket sales. 0:49
There’s a lot of piracy. 2:45
A younger audience can watch adult-rated movies. 3:35
Viewers cry, weep, and run out of the hallways. 4:11
Creative ways to sneak in food 5:19
Many people avoid 3D films. 5:57
If there’s something wrong with the picture, the projection booth worker won’t help. 6:58
Cinema halls are full of garbage on weekend nights. 7:38
People often fight at the movies. 8:32
You are being watched! 9:00

SUMMARY
-Theaters have to pay a lot to film studios in the first two months of distribution so they have to make their money out of concession.
-The cinema staff members who manage to prevent movie theft get a $500 prize.
-The younger generations buy a ticket when two movies start simultaneously, and one of them is not R-rated.
-A movie about cannibals called Raw appeared to be too hard to watch for a couple of visitors at The Toronto International Film Festival in 2016. The people fainted and one of them hit his head badly during the fall.
-One couple stuffed a truckload of food into an infant’s car seat and went to watch a movie. A girl from put some pasta into zip-lock bags and brought them into the cinema with her.
-3D glasses give you an illusion of being inside a movie and it drives your visual analyzer crazy.
-Even though a movie projector has to be programmed during the day, there’s nobody sitting in the booth when you watch a movie.
-A short break between two movies is not enough time for a cinema staff to thoroughly clean up a theater.
-Someone who loves to fight will always find a reason to do so. It could be that someone took someone else’s parking place, they talked on the phone during the movie, or someone is chomping too loudly.
-Thanks to security cameras, movie theater staff can spot and kick out couples that go too far on their “loveseats”.

10 Things You Should Never Do To Your Car (Never Ever!)

What things you should avoid while driving. Today’s cars are also packed with plenty of safety features like airbags, anti-lock braking systems, traction control, and shatterproof glass. However, despite your car’s sophisticated safety features or computer system, you could find yourself in a tricky situation at the worst possible time. And it’s still a good idea to avoid doing certain things.

TIMESTAMPS:
Don’t press the “Off” button while driving 0:58
Don’t select “reverse” while driving 1:50
Don’t select “park” while driving 2:26
Don’t attach too many keys to the ignition key 2:54
Don’t forget to change your car’s oil 3:35
Don’t overfill the engine oil 4:27
Don’t wait until the fuel tank is empty 5:05
Don’t ignore warning indicators 5:45
Don’t forget to check your tire pressure 6:31
Don’t forget to balance your tires 7:14

#parking #drivingtips

Music:

SUMMARY:
- Some cars might require you to press the button for 3 seconds or more to shut it down. This is a safety feature in case you have a problem with your accelerator or brakes.
- If your car has cameras and a screen on the deck, the rear-facing camera might come on, or parking aids might become available, but the car won’t back up all of a sudden or come to a stop.
- If you shift to park while driving, your car might make an awful grinding noise and continue driving. Your car probably won’t suffer damage if you accidentally do this once.
- Gravity is still at work when you put your car keys into the ignition. During car rides, bumps and potholes will cause these heavy keys to pull and pull on the ignition until it wears out the tumblers.
- If you don’t change your oil, your car will run less efficiently. It will also stop lubricating the engine components, causing wear and tear. If the mechanical components continue to grind on each other, the car might become inoperable.
- The engine oil always comes with a dipstick, which has a mark to indicate the level the oil needs to be filled to. Fill it to this level and not to the top as if it were a bottle.
- Signs that your car’s catalytic converter has been damaged are that your car won’t accelerate when you press the pedal, your car’s fuel emission will drop suddenly, or your car won’t start.
- A good rule of thumb is that if you see a warning light on the dashboard, call or bring it to a mechanic as soon as possible.
- Checking your tire pressure is a good practice that often falls by the wayside. It’s even more important to do it when you’re headed out on a road trip or if your daily commute is over 30 minutes.
- If the tires are out of balance, you don’t have full control of your car, and your tires will wear unevenly.
