Traveling. It’s supposed to be an exciting time since you’re jetting off somewhere exciting. Or maybe you’re just traveling to work. The airport is one of those places where you catch people doing the craziest, yet hilarious things. What is it about airports that causes people to do things that they wouldn’t ordinarily do?
Let’s take a look at some of the most hilarious things done at the airport that were caught on camera.
Enjoying a Nap
Since many of us get to the airport a few hours early, we often find ourselves getting rather restless waiting to board the plane. Imagine being there even longer because of a layover? One woman got a little clever when she needed some sleep when she was able to move under the armrests, turning the row of seating into a bed for her.
Trying to Stay Comfortable
Long plane rides are uncomfortable for many people. People often get up and move around because they want to stretch and because their body is getting a little sore. One woman traveling had a neck pillow to help stay comfortable, and maybe even sleep a little. But the perfectly timed photo catches the neck pillow in a place that caused a lot of passengers to do a double take.
Not all photos are making people laugh. One woman, Swedish pilot, Maria Pattersson, took a photo of herself in a yoga position around the aircraft and too close for comfort to the engine. Many would consider this extremely dangerous, and the photo caused a lot of attention on Instagram.
Unfunny Welcome Signs
When it comes to the airport, you can’t help but take notice to all of the “Welcome Home” signs that people are holding up. One person was greeting a family member in a “Creative” way with a sign saying they’re out of cereal, while dressed in childish pajamas. Maybe this was an inside joke and we just had to be there.
Shoe Shining For Those in Armor
Spend a few hours walking around airports and you’re bound to see a lot of interesting things. One airport business you’ll always see is for shoe shining, and this particular image took promoting the business to whole new heights. Two figures in full metal armor are seen sitting in the comfortable chairs while two people are polishing the shoes. According to the post, both were in town for Comic-Con, but it’s hard to look at this photo and not get a huge kick out of it.
Birds On A Plane
No, this isn’t an upcoming sequel to the cult-classic Samuel L. Jackson movie, Snakes on a Plane. This is an actual photo of falcons making their journey on a commercial airplane. The photo states that the Saudi Prince paid for his 80 Falcons to travel between the United Arab Emirates. This would not happen for a regular person, but when you’re the Prince, many will bend the rules just ab it for you.
Strict Goodbye Kissing Guidelines
Airports all have rules that passengers have to follow. These rules are to keep travelers on time without any issues. No one likes drama… especially at the airport. But don’t you think the city of Aalborg in Denmark’s airport took things a bit far with this Kiss and Goodbye sign? I mean three minutes really is just not enough time for a proper kiss goodbye. I mean, most people will need at least five minutes to give their loved one a proper goodbye.
Welcoming Crew To Greet You
No matter who you are, everyone deserves a warm welcome from their friends, family, and maybe even employees. Yes, this even means Darth Vader getting a proper greeting as she arrived at the Denver airport. This greeting even included him marching to the “Imperial March” as everyone celebrated his arrival. Who knew Vader was so popular? This is by far one of the best airport photos seen so far. Can anyone top it?
Greeting Sign With Too Much Information
Yes, we all love a “Welcome Home” sign, but is it really necessary to include where you’re coming home from? Sure, if it’s vacation, you can include that. But prison? Do passengers coming off a flight really need to know that someone on board the plane was in prison? That’s just too much information. However, it’s still a funny, and unique way to greet a loved one home.
Security On Top Of Things
Going to airports is a stressful time for some, and terrifying for others who are not used to flying. Some people have to fly for work and they’re absolutely terrified. Airport travelers are always depending on the security team to be on top of things and make sure everything is safe and under control. So you can only assume that people weren’t too happy to see that a security guard was playing solitaire on the computer when you can see people are holding passports. This is probably the one job where you should really pay attention to what’s going on and following protocol.
Taking Rules Too Literally
Airports have rules to follow. Clear containers, nothing over a certain size, nothing hazardous, you know simple rules to follow. Another rule is placing all of your belongings into the bin for security check. This just means your computer, jewelry, and shoes. This doesn’t include your baby. Don’t worry, the baby didn’t make it through the X-ray machine, but you can’t help but wonder how this adorable little bundle of joy ended up there.
Other hilarious photos include a man dressed as Forrest Gump most likely going to see Jenny, an airport proposal, and a new business venture. There are always hilarious, and crazy things going on at airports. While most of these photos are done in pure entertainment, please remember to follow the safety rules at airports and don’t cause any drama or crazy delays.
There is no doubt that the TSA and the safety measures that have to be taken at the airport are annoying, but this man is ready for anything that comes his way. He isn’t going to have to wait to see if the scanner finds anything because he has left nothing to the imagination.
We all remember planking and how popular it was at one time, here we see a young girl taking the fad to new extremes on the luggage belt. She is having fun now but it won’t be so fun when she gets taken back to the storage area.
We all know how tiring the airport can be, here we see one little girl that is just so tired she cannot even walk. She’s hitching a ride on her parents luggage and she seems to have the right idea about the best way to get around.
Seems to be a theme with airports, people are tired and the seats are just not big enough. Here we see one very inventive man who has laid across the seat and onto his luggage.
This little girls is certainly ready to head home and be done with the whole airport thing. She sat herself down and refused to go anywhere, we feel like doing that some days as well.
This is a classic photo of an airport shuttle shows you just how strange the people you meet are. I’s sure the people on the shuttle never imagined they would see Forrest Gump on the tram to their hotels.
Who needs an extra ticket when you can just stow away in the suitcase and get a free ride? Though that is what it looks like, it also looks like it may be a marketing tactic, a good one at that. It looks like there might be a person in the case but it may all be staged.
Here we see planes that are far too big for the hanger trying to queue up. These planes are on icy tarmac as well. We aren’t sure if there was some sort of accident or if perhaps the photo was a setup.
We see all sorts of strange things at the airport and a shirt can often say far more about the person wearing it than you might imagine. It’s just ironic that he is wearing the metal god shirt as he prepares to go through the metal detector.
Here we see a sign that tells people at the airport that the jet blast from the plane taking off can be dangerous, we would hope that the people at the airport wouldn’t need to be told to avoid the jet blasts.
We aren’t sure what is cuter, the fact that she is riding on her dad’s suitcase or the fact that the pair match as they ride. their pink shorts and blue shirts are precious as is her enthusiasm for riding on the suitcase to help make her trip to the airport a little less boring.
There is no limit to love, but there is a limit to how much other people will tolerate it. Here we see a sign that designates a kissing area, but they also put a time limit on how long you can kiss your loved ones good bye.
We can tell from his look and from the look on the TSA agent’s face that they all expected him to be stopped on this trip through the metal detector. It may be a joke, and it does seem to be amusing to both, but we know he didn’t expect to make it through without being caught.
Kids are tough, and keeping up with them can be a challenge. Here we see one parent that is certainly struggling to keep their kids under control. Good thing they have leashes or they would likely be off across the airport and bone by now.
He really didn’t want the pat down so he made the most of it and rode the conveyor through the metal detector. That is just one way to get through TSA a bit faster than you might any other way. Hopefully he saved some time and did not get stuck trying to cut corners.
Optical illusions are fun, this is one that is particularly funny. It’s even better because he does not seem to realize that it is happening and he’s checking her out to boot. This is just one of the funny things you see at the airport every day.
We are betting he’s going to get stopped by the TSA, it’s not every day that you see a man in an alligator onsie walking through the gates. At least he looks happy and excited to be at the airport.
Noise cancelling headphones for the win. Here we see a father that has had enough of the kids and he just wants a bit of peace and quiet. We hope he didn’t use up all the batteries before the flight took off.
Here we see a sign that is a bit confusing at first glance. It seems to be telling us that the toilet and the drinking water are the same thing. With a closer look however we see that they are talking about a toilet and a water fountain.
We aren’t sure but it’s not every day that you see a kid in a basket on the x-ray conveyor. It’s surprising to say the least that the kid actually stayed still and didn’t move off the conveyor or fall off onto the floor.

40 Unforgivable Movie Bloopers
With that goes with making a movie, especially one for the big cinema screen, it’s not surprising when mistakes occur or edits are need. That’s what the editing room is for to go through the draft film and tighten up all the problems or loose spots in the film as well as to get it within the acceptable viewing time allowed. However, once in a while even the best of movies, including Oscar-winning films, have bloopers in them that just can’t be forgiven. They are such clear violations of quality film-making, people wonder how the blooper got through to the public viewing, and yet it does anyways. Here are 25 examples of film bloopers that never should have been allowed or the detail missed, but in the fictional world of movies they occur regardless.
Homeless Man Who Helped a Woman Turned Out to be a Hoax
The story of the homeless man who helped out a woman needing gas for her car by donating his few dollars went viral on the Internet and had hundreds of people wanting to reach out and help. They did so through a GoFundMe site that ended up generating a sizable amount of charity and gifts. For those who gave money, it made them feel better instantly. There was only one problem. The story was made up. The man was not homeless, and the woman had never run out of gas.
Instead, the two were involved in an online scam that ended up defrauding folks out of approximately $400,000 in online money gifts. It was not only enough to trigger a serious crime, the pair got themselves charged with a federal conspiracy case and ultimately pled guilty in a New Jersey federal court. Johnny Bobbitt and Katelyn McClure both separately admitted their crime of wire fraud. Given their involvement and degree of actions, Bobbitt is looking at a potential 10 years in federal prison and $250,000 in fines. McClure for her part faces a bigger sentence of 20 years and a similar financial penalty. Both will find out for sure when they are sentenced. In addition to the federal charges, the pair also have a second round of trials to go through with state charges as well. It was a blunt, cold ending to a story and scam that started in 2017 and took off like wildfire, far better than Hobbitt and McClure thought it would.
The story was plausible and reasonable enough. A couple told their story online about how they wanted to help a homeless man who helped them. McClure and her partner posted that Bobbitt realized McClure was in trouble, stuck in Philadelphia without gas. She needed to get home, and Bobbitt, who was nearby, realized the problem. He then gave her his only $20 to buy gas so she could travel again. To show their gratitude, McClure and her boyfriend were trying to raise $10,000 to help Bobbitt out as a thank you. The story took off.
Unfortunately, the media got involved. Loving a story out of the norm with a good newsworthy ending, they showcased the story on TV, and it got big attention. All of a sudden, what was supposed to be a little scam turned into a big one, raising some $402,706 with the added attention in a short three weeks. While Bobbitt did get $25,000 set aside by McClure and her partner, the rest of it was burned like kerosene on fire via clothing, trips, a car, vacations, gambling and more. However, Bobbitt didn’t appreciate the small share, and sued the pair for more, arguing he should have gotten $75,000 at least. GoFundMe got involved by trying to avoid bad press and making sure Bobbitt, the alleged homeless person, got his fair shake.
All of the financial attention caught the eye of the Feds who started investigating McClure. They seized well over 60,000 digital messages between the couple, which included admissions that the whole story was made up – a smoking gun text in the fraud conspiracy. Interestingly, McClure’s partner, although he enjoyed the spending of the money with McClure, was not charged or seen as involved in the conspiracy. The Feds went after McClure and the alleged homeless partner, Bobbitt, for the fraud. And GoFundMe yet again found itself in the middle of a crazy criminal scheme gone public and bad, stealing money from people who wanted to help others online. It turned out to be an odd, miserable ending to what many had hoped would have been a story of human charity done right.
Drones, COVID-19, and Girl Scout Cookies: How One Virginia Troop Made It All Work
Nestled in the heart of Montgomery County is Christiansburg, VA. A small town with just over 20,000 within its city limits, Christiansburg was first founded in 1671. Hundreds of years later, the city continues to thrive despite the COVID-19 pandemic that has been wrecking so much of our day-to-day life.
One particular group of Christiansburg locals made it their goal to deliver Girl Scout Cookies no matter what during the pandemic and Google’s parental company, Alphabet Inc., decided to help them out.
Cookies From the Sky
During the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, it seemed unlikely that there would ever be a time when the pandemic would end. As economies shuttered and businesses quarantined, people had to get creative to continue working their trade. A team of Girl Scouts in Virginia was determined to deliver their famous cookies this past year, but due to COVID restrictions, they knew that this would bed difficult.
Lia Reich is a global communications lead at Wing, a subsidiary of the company Alphabet Inc.. Wing develops drones for Google, and it was through their futuristic work that Thin Mints would rain down from the sky. Lia says of COVID restrictions impacting the Scouts, “Selling cookies outside (grocery stores or shops) is difficult this year.”
According to Lia, sales within the Girl Scouts have dropped more than 50%. Lia would go on to tell the team at USA TODAY during an interview, “It was a natural fit to partner with the Girl Scouts.”
Despite soaring vaccination rates and loosening COVID restrictions, the drone program would get launched through the Wing App and its corresponding website. According to Reich, the plan at Wing is to help deliver more than 3,000 total boxes of cookies via its drone delivery service, if not even more.
For the Girl Scouts, cookie season typically begins in January though flavor availability and onset will vary based upon the region. For the longest time, Girl Scouts have prioritized selling their goods in residential neighborhoods, outside of grocery stores, and even through company programs at local businesses.
Unfortunately for the Girl Scouts, the COVID-19 pandemic would put an end to convention. In March 2020, the Scouts would suspend all of their traditional cookie booths and door-to-door sales campaigns. To make up for this loss in action, the Girl Scouts of Virginia would prepare virtual cookie booths through their online social media campaigns to partner with their drone-delivery methods.
Considered one of the largest girl-led programs for entrepreneurs on the planet, the Girl Scout Cookie drive is immensely important for multiple reasons. Not just an important institution, the Girl Scouts are a defining one.
Take Flight With Wing
While the Girl Scouts of Virginia will enjoy drone flying assistance with their cookie deliveries, they won’t have to worry about running the controls themselves. As the first drone delivery company in the country to earn Air Operators Certification from the FAA in 2019, Wing has used the Scouts delivery service as a way to showcase just how far drone flights have come.
According to Reich, “COVID gave people who might not have a reason to try drone delivery, and we saw deliveries increase by more than 500% in 2020.”
Reich’s assertion was backed by a local survey released by Virginia Tech. The survey found that Christiansburg locals enjoyed the idea of a residential drone delivery company with support coming in at 87% in favor of the idea.
Are you ready to start ordering your Girl Scout Cookies through drone delivery services? How about your next grocery order? As it turns out, the sky might be the limit!
