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.
Daring Rescue: Duluth Firefighters Save Dog from Frigid Lake Superior
In a heart-pounding rescue mission on the shores of Duluth, Minnesota, a brave dog found himself in a perilous situation after leaping into the icy waters of Lake Superior. The daring rescue unfolded amidst eight-foot waves that crashed against the shore, creating a challenging environment for both man and canine.
The intense situation began when the adventurous dog managed to slip out of his leash, enticed by the allure of a chilly swim. Unbeknownst to the canine, Lake Superior’s vast expanse presented a danger he hadn’t anticipated. The situation quickly escalated, prompting the owner to dial emergency services.
To pinpoint the distressed dog’s location, dispatchers utilized cameras on a life bridge, offering a bird’s-eye view of the unfolding drama. The dog, buffeted by the relentless waves, struggled to stay afloat as firefighters donned specialized ice suits to brave the frigid waters.
These ice suits, designed for extreme cold-water rescues, provide a crucial barrier between the icy environment and the rescuers. Comprising layers of insulated materials, these suits not only keep firefighters warm but also offer buoyancy and protection against the harsh elements.
As the brave firefighters plunged into the turbulent waters, the dog faced the dual challenges of the waves and the numbing cold. Despite the difficult conditions, the rescue team, guided by the worried owner who remained on the shore, managed to locate the struggling canine.
The dog, large and frightened, repeatedly disappeared beneath the waves, making the rescue a daunting task. Through effective communication between the owner and the firefighters, the team successfully secured the dog by the collar, preventing him from slipping away.
Once the dog was safely in their grasp, both the firefighters and the canine were brought to safety aboard a waiting boat. The dog, now shivering and scared, received prompt medical attention. After warming up, the resilient pup even leaped happily into his owner’s car, a heartwarming conclusion to a potentially tragic event.
The Duluth Fire Department, often questioned about responding to animal-related emergencies, emphasized the significance of such actions in a Facebook post. They highlighted the deep bond between pets and their families, explaining that in their experience, if emergency responders did not intervene, well-meaning bystanders might take unnecessary risks.
The post also revealed a chilling detail: one of the dog’s owners had considered jumping into the treacherous waters. The fire department strongly discouraged such actions, emphasizing the importance of leaving water rescues to trained professionals equipped with the necessary gear.
“The Duluth Fire Department wants to stress to the public the importance of not putting yourself into a situation you are neither trained nor equipped to handle,” the post warned. “Given the wave and temperature conditions in the canal last night, anyone entering the water without the proper training and equipment would most likely have ended in tragedy.”
Teenager Sam Sieracki Soars to New Heights, Solving Rubik’s Cube in Free Fall
Seventeen-year-old Sam Sieracki has etched his name into the Guinness World Records by solving a Rubik’s Cube while skydiving over West Australia. Jumping out of an airplane at 14,000 feet, Sam achieved the remarkable feat in just 28.25 seconds, breaking the previous record of 30.14 seconds held by Nitin Subramanian of the United States.
In a daring display of skill and concentration, Sam described the intense experience of solving the Rubik’s Cube in free fall. “It’s really intense. It’s very loud because you’ve got all the wind in your face,” Sam explained. “So it’s a lot harder to concentrate than if I’m just on the ground solving it… my record on the ground is a lot faster than in the air – it’s about 6.5 seconds.”
Despite facing challenges in the sky, Sam, who is both a speed-cuber and a skydiving enthusiast, tackled the feat with enthusiasm. It took him five attempts to surpass the previous record, showcasing his determination and resilience.
Sam, who has been attending speed-cubing competitions since 2017, expressed confidence in breaking the record but admitted that the challenge proved to be more demanding than expected. “Having attended speed-cubing competitions since 2017, I was confident about breaking the record, but it ended being far more challenging than expected and took me five attempts to achieve,” Sam remarked.
The teenager’s passion for both speed-cubing and skydiving has been a driving force in his pursuits. “I decided that I want to be a solo skydiver, so waited impatiently to turn 16 … so that I could become a licensed skydiver and go by myself,” Sam shared. “Since then, I’ve gone up to Jurien Bay every school holidays to do a few jumps, and am now up to 80 jumps in my second year of skydiving.”
Acknowledging the support of his loved ones, Sam expressed gratitude to his biggest fans and supporters, his mother and girlfriend, who encouraged him to break the world record. As a self-proclaimed rookie in the skydiving world, Sam doesn’t set grand goals but aims to continue improving his skills with each jump, all while enjoying the thrilling experience.

Massive Sandcastle Built by Auckland Brothers Impresses Scores of Beachgoers
When you have run out of Christmas ideas, nothing beats going to the beach and letting your creative juices flow. That’s what two brothers in New Zealand did this past Boxing Day and ended up with an amazing and eye-catching sandcastle.
After building a massive sandcastle on Boxing Day, two Auckland boys gained praise from other people around Mt Maunganui’s beach area that day.
Jared and Paul Brandon spent 10 hours that day building a two-meter-high sandcastle, beginning with a sketch of the structure “on a piece of A4 paper” and beginning at high tide. The pair plans to turn this into a Boxing Day ritual.
On Christmas Eve, the brothers started strategizing on how to top last year’s one-meter-high tower on Boxing Day 2021.
Because Jared and Paul are “very competitive,” they wanted to outdo their performance from the previous year. Before beginning their construction, the two searched online for sandcastle designs after visiting Bunnings to get tools, buckets, as well as a footrest.
Both residents and visitors have expressed admiration and astonishment at the beautiful creation.
Jared chuckles, “A guy is assessing how tall it is currently with his beach umbrella.
Jared informed the media, “This one is 2 meters, so we needed a few footstools to climb up tall enough and also used a builder’s level so it didn’t topple over.
The 150-liter pail was the biggest we were able to use, and the traditional household bucket was a fairly small one. We purchased them both from Bunnings.
Paul explains, “There are a few techniques, such as two portions of water to one portion of sand.”
Then came the spatulas to shape the windows, then toothpicks for creating the roof piles, as well as the straws for blowing off the “extra sand.”
The previous night, the two worked on it until 8 p.m., and unlike last year, it is still standing.
“Time went by incredibly quickly; it seemed like we were only at the beach for five hours, instead of ten.” “Paul spoke to the press.
He claims that while working for a California hotel plus learning how to construct sandcastles as a kid-friendly activity, he acquired the skill there about eight years ago.
“Now that he’s used that knowledge and developed it, he taught me. Therefore, for the previous four to five years, whenever we had the time, we would construct a sandcastle once a year ” says Jared.
The two, who are both camera operators, intend to go much further next year and are hoping to enlist the aid of a larger family.
We will attempt to teach my sister as well as my brother-in-law to assist us as they appear interested this year. “We are striving to dredge up more relatives to get involved in creating a village in 2023.”
Man Finds $47,000 Historic Ring
England is very much metal detector country. The land outside the big cities is stuffed full of artifacts and leftovers from ancient times, ranging from before the Romans’ arrival to the Middle Ages and more. So, it’s not surprising, with the blessing of local farmers, that many a fellow with a metal detector is out there spending a Saturday or Sunday scanning through a fallow farm field to see what might be found. As it turned out, David Board was one of those hunters, and he just happened to come across a very small gold ring in one of his ventures.
Located outside of Dorset, Board was busy scanning a pasture field and had been doing so for hours. The sun was late in the sky, and Board was about to wrap up when his machine pinged a definite metallic substance under the soil he was waving the sensor over. Sure enough, pinpointing the location and then digging specifically into that spot, Board unearthed a very small gold ring.
It was in the farm soil, the ground typically tilled for planting, but this particular field had been used for cattle instead. So, five inches underground, the ring remained until Board found it and pulled it back into the daylight. At first, he chalked up the discovery to just another piece of metal from old times, he cleared off the dirt, pocketed the ring and kept going. Then, at the end of the day, Board went home and washed off his finds in the sink. It was only then that he realized what that ring actually was.
While the method of metal detecting in England gives archaeologists utter heart attacks every time they hear a similar story, the finds are generally split between the metal detector and the farm owner, unless the farm owner just waives off the matter and lets the hunters keep whatever they find. Whichever the case in this instance, the ring was no small trinket. It turned out to be an exceedingly well-crafted and rare gold wedding ring from the Medieval period and in very good condition. To be auctioned off later this year, the find is expected to net between 30,000 to 47,000 British Pounds.
The only surprise to anyone hearing the story in England these days is why the local farmers still allow detectors to scan their fields without any stake in the finds.
