Ever Wanted to Live in an Airplane Graveyard?

TweetThree families in Thailand live in a graveyard for decommissioned planes. We don’t often think about what happens to old planes when they are no longer fit for the skies.

Rant Of The Week: Santa Claus Doesn’t Exist Because I Can Touch Myself

Tweet I know that headline probably doesn’t make much sense upon first reading, but bear with me. When I first read this letter I thought: Oh, how sweet! They are crushing a young child’s dreams.
