Post a boarding pass on Facebook, get your account stolen

Users often publish data that they don't know what they mean. Because at first sight, it's not possible to see what's the data, or what the data is for. Someone might find the data usefulf for something. In the worst case, it's possible to steal an account. Just be careful with the data you upload or publish. When you're not exactly sure what data is the in the picture or screenshot you want to upload to Facebook, you can just hide the data with a black rectangle or any other favorite shape (just blurring them might not be enough), or maybe just don't publish the data at all.

Beyond Hope

A wonderful thing happens when you give up on hope, which is that you realize you never needed it in the first place. You realize that giving up on hope didn’t kill you. It didn’t even make you less effective. In fact it made you more effective, because you ceased relying on someone or something else to solve your problems — you ceased hoping your problems would somehow get solved through the magical assistance of God, the Great Mother, the Sierra Club, valiant tree-sitters, brave salmon, or even the Earth itself — and you just began doing whatever it takes to solve those problems yourself.
