"It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door," he used to say. "You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to."
After the shocking plane crash of one of the country’s most revered public servants, it’s normal for some people to develop flying anxieties. The fear of flying, also known as aerophobia, aviatophobia, or aviophobia, is the fear of being in a flying vehicle such as airplanes, helicopters and the like.
Fear of flying affects several people. Data from the Valk Foundation, a joint project of the University of Leiden, KLM and Amsterdam Schiphol Airport showed that 40% of people experience flying anxieties. Some famous people who are known to have flying anxieties include Ben Affleck, former American professional football player in the National Football League John Madden, Doris Day, Elisha Cuthbert, and even Isaac Asimov.
The thing is, you cannot let the fear of flying get in the way of enjoying life. There’s so much to see—Paris, Tokyo, Dubai, New York—how else can you see the world if you won’t conquer your fear?
According to the BBC, a total of 26.3 million people tuned in to watch the closing ceremony of the hottest event of the year that is the 2012 London Olympics.
Although the ceremony or the musical performances to be specific, raked in mixed reviews, there were segments that earned a general appeal to everybody. Perhaps one of the best highlights of the show were the performances of the Spice Girls and Take That—two bands that represent the best in British pop music in the ’90s. Both groups disbanded—Take That in 1996, and Spice Girls in 2001.
Aside from the Spice Girls, what other bands do YOU miss?
The feelings that come with being single vary for different types of people. Some love it; some find it a curse. And while deep inside you hope to find your perfect match real soon, there’s no reason to waste the time in between, right? If you know how to count your blessings, you might even find yourself thankful for being single, and not just on Valentine’s Day.
Mr. Right can be just around the corner, but before he arrives, here are some things you can do:
Smoking is an addiction that needs professional help. But this also underlines why the government must take action to protect its citizens against tobacco. Yet despite being an extremely hazardous and addictive product, tobacco is still legal. It’s just wrong.
2 days ago I was shocked to find my Facebook account disabled—by Facebook. F*ck those bastards for disabling my account without fair warning. I’m 101% sure that it’s all a big mistake since I don’t post anything abusive or pornographic.
This was according to Peter McWilliams. I bet if he said that to Jennifer Lopez, she’d give him a high five.
While marriages in Hollywood are not expected to last, the news that actress and singer Jennifer Lopez has split with singer Marc Anthony still came as a shocker. Perhaps it was because deep inside, we really want marriages to work—even in Hollywood.
Does this news mean that J.Lo falls in the long list of Hollywood sirens who just can’t seem to find that one person? Let’s take a look back at her past attempts at finding true love and see

Mga minamahal kong kaibigan, kaklase, kabarilan:
(SEC. OCHOA, SEC. LACIERDA, KIEF RAVENA AND OTHERS WILL STAND UP AND CHANT “ANIMO ARENEOW!”)
Sa bawat sandali po ng pamamahala ay nahaharap tayo sa isang sangangdaan.
Sa isang banda po ay ang tuwid na daan. Mula Valenzuela, nakaabot ako ngSingapore, para lang makahanap ng First Lady ng bayan.
Sa kabilang banda ay ang baluktot na daan. Kaya ibinenta ko ang aking Porsche.Mungkahi ni Mar at Anne Curtis, mag-MRT na lang ako. Wala nang wangwang, wala pang counterflow.
Bago ko man kayo iniligaw, matagal na pong naligaw ang pamahalaan sa daang baluktot. Araw-araw po, lalong lumilinaw sa akin ang lawak ng problemang ating namana. Damang-dama ko ang bigat ng mga kasalanan ni Gloria. Mabuti na lang absent siya.
Sa unang taon ng aming panunungkulan, marami po kaming natuklasan. Nais ko pong ipahayag sa inyo ang iilan lamang sa mga namana nating suliranin at ang ginagawa naming hakbang para lutasin ang mga ito.
Sulyap lamang po ito; hindi pa ito ang lahat ng problemang haharapin natin. Inilihim at sadyang iniligaw ang sambayanan sa totoong kalagayan ng ating bansa.
Dahil kay Gloria, may toll free increase at oil price hike.
Dahil kay Gloria, umabot po ng tatlong bilyong piso ang utang ng PCSO.
Dahil kay Gloria, isanlibong porsyento naman ang itinaas ng utang ng NFA.
Dahil kay Gloria, may climate change at binaha ang Metro Manila.
Dahil kay Gloria, nag-away si Heart Evangelista at Marian Rivera.
Dahil kay Gloria, naging “alleged” victim si Amanda Coling.
Dahil kay Gloria, si Bedol ay naka bullet-proof vest at si Zaldy ay may“insignificant coronary artery disease.”
Dahil kay Gloria, nawalan ako ng love life at nalagas ang aking hairline.
To you who were once a President, this advice: Mind your own district. Mind your own hairdo. If you really want something done, just be a Congresswoman. Don’t pussyfoot. Don’t pander. And don’t wear your neck brace in public.
