She Places Bubble Wrap All Over Her Windows. The Reason Is GENIUS!

Winter doesn’t officially begin until December 21, at 11:48 P.M. EST, but temperatures are dropping well below freezing in many areas of the country already. People have been digging out their warm clothes, blankets, and extra bedding, as well as cranking up the thermostat to keep their houses nice and comfortable.

That’s just about all you can basically do to fight the winter chill, but heating the house can turn into an expensive endeavor. When it comes to keeping the warm air in, and the cold air out, insulation is key. All the cracks and crevices, or drafty areas that you notice, need to be found and insulated.

The most common and draftiest areas of our houses where the majority of heat tends to escape is doorways and windows. Stores sell a variety of products that are meant to be used to keep these areas insulated, such as “draft stoppers” that fit under or around the bottoms of doors.

For windows, there are all different types of kits and sealants, but you can easily create your own window draft-blocker without spending any money at all. This quick and easy method to insulate a window is brought to you by YouTube user AlaskaGranny. She shows how to insulate a window with bubble wrap, so if you have any on hand be sure to save it!

Other than bubble wrap, you’ll also need a pair of scissors and a spray bottle with water. This takes less than a minute to do and it can be done on any type of window. To do it yourself, start by taking a piece of bubble wrap and cut it so that it fits the window that you want covered.

Next, grab the spray bottle and spritz some water onto the glass window and on the bubbly side of the plastic bubble wrap. Place that side, the wet and bubbly one, against the window so that the smooth side faces towards you. Gently press it into place and you’re done!

The bubble wrap will add extra insulation to the window and it stays in place naturally all winter long. When you want to remove it, simply peel it off. It won’t leave behind any marks and all you may have to do is clean the glass, but it’s nothing that a little Windex can’t fix. Try it this winter and save yourself a lot of money, you’ll be extra toasty and won’t have to spend a dime.

Be sure to pass this tip along to your family and friends, it will save them so much money!

Apparently This Is The Reason Airplane Windows Have That Tiny Hole At The Bottom!

Airline safety is a top priority all throughout the far ranging and complex industry. Most of the safety-related precautions and procedures passengers see are at the gate and in the terminal, but many more less obvious measures are in place. For starters, airplanes have to meet some very strict design and construction guidelines to comply with government regulations and to ensure passenger safety.

After all, when a plane is traveling through the sky, at high speeds, with a full tank of jet fuel, and contending with all sorts of natural hazards like lightning, hail and bird strikes, safety and construction become the number one priority.

All passenger planes must be certified as ‘airworthy’ before any commercial flights on them ever take off. Everything from the engines to the rivets have to be tested and inspected for performance. One design aspect that many people notice, yet tend to overlook, are plane windows.

If you look closely, you can see a tiny hole near the bottom of the pane. Ever wonder why it’s there? I have. Turns out this little hole has a name, it’s called a breather hole, or a bleeder hole, and it’s located on the middle layer of the window.

All airplane windows consist of 3 layers. The part that you can touch when you’re inside the cabin is called the scratch cover and it’s there to protect the real window from being damaged, poked, or destroyed. The middle piece is called the inner pane, which has the hole in it, and then there is the outer pane.

These two panes are both half-inch thick pieces of Plexiglas which are separated by a half an inch of air. The hole allows warm air in-between the inner and outer panes and releases moisture from the air gap, which keeps the window mostly fog and frost free.

The other, more important, function of the hole is to contain and regulate the pressure exerted on the windows. Planes are pressurized during a flight so that people can breathe safely, and the pressure inside the cabin is much greater than the outside air pressure. The outer two cabin panes are designed to contain this difference in pressure and each is strong enough to withstand it on their own.

However, the bleeder hole makes it so that the outer pane bears the pressure. This is because the hole allows the pressure to become balanced between the interior cabin and the air gap between the panes, thus placing the cabin pressure on the outside pane. If the outer pane were to ever fail, the middle one would then take over, instead of the entire window imploding or exploding (which would depend on whatever the pressure differential is).

Turns out that the tiny bleeder hole serves a major purpose. Many of a planes design aspects and inconspicuous, seemingly minor, details serve very important safety functions. It’s no wonder that the airline industry has the best record on file in regards to passenger safety and transportation.

According to Discovery, the odds of a person dying in a plane crash are 1:11 million, whereas the odds of dying in a car accident are 1:5,000. In comparison, the odds of being killed by a shark are 1:3.7 million (National Geographic).

Those odds put it all in perspective, it’s extremely rare to find yourself in an aviation accident, let alone die in one. That is due in part to the breather hole and the many other plane engineering feats that are designed with safety in mind.

THIS Wild Bear Came To This Man’s Window Looking For Food At :07 Seconds It’s Hilarious!

Wild bears are adorable. Their big pleading eyes are akin to the look you get from a puppy that instantly melts your heart. The animal’s gaze begs for compassion, and efficiently making you weak in the knees, you give in to their desire for attention.

The irresistible stare almost always is a cry for fulfillment of their hearts, not from tenderness and love, but through the comfort of a full belly. This bear presented a grand act by batting its innocent eyes right outside some people’s window in Siberia.

As if showing up at a drive through for its meal, the bear props itself up on the sill waiting for snacks. The spectacle of the situation was sure to bring him success as human laughter and entertainment lead a cookie to his mouth.

The bear gently nibbles the treat and when finished, unashamedly looks back with obvious expectation for more. His request is granted as another cookie is handed over and each time he’s finished the process is repeated.

At some point the man feeding the bear decides to up the ante by attempting to teach the beast to shake his hand in order to receive more sweets, but the bear is unresponsive and, despite his remorselessness, given more cookies anyway.

It appears as though the bear has no limit to his calorie intake, and is speeding right through sugar high straight on toward diabetes. These men can be sure to expect a regular visitor when the bear’s glucose crashes and his sugar addiction escalates from soft eyes to growling demands. He will be back to get his fix!
