KRISTEN'S STORY - WINNER
According to the experts at mattress company Beautyrest, there is one sure-fire trick that will make you fall asleep fast. Instead of tossing and turning and trying to figure out how many hours you have left before you have to wake up, just close your eyes and visualize your childhood home. Take yourself through the hallways, into each room, think about the pictures on the wall. Pretty soon you’ll be snoozing. Why does this work? It distracts you. When you get your mind off everything but that bedspread you had in your room in the fifth grade, you’ll be asleep in no time.
PLANE DROPS 20K FEET DUE TO PILOT...VAPING.
An Air China co-pilot apparently is the reason a plane descended about 20,000 feet. What happened? He wanted to vape! But he flicked the wrong switch to hide his vaping from passengers.
He tried to shut off air recycling fans to prevent the smoke from spreading to the passenger cabin. Instead, he turned off the air conditioning. That lowered oxygen levels and set off altitude warnings, forcing pilots to descend immediately. Oxygen masks were also deployed during the emergency descent.
After descending 19,600 feet in under nine minutes, pilots realized the mistake, re-activated air conditioning, and brought the flight to its regular altitude—but oxygen levels remained subpar for the rest of the flight. Whoopsie.
Air China fired the whole flight deck crew.
