Known to many as the drummer of rock band Blink 182, Travis Barker almost lost his life to a tragic plane accident on September 19, 2008.
Recently, he released his own autobiographical book entitled “Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums, Drums, Drums” and he revealed never-before told details about his traumatic experience.
According to the 39-year-old rockstar, Alabama Barker, his then three-year-old daughter (now nine years old) actually predicted the crash. The toddler was visibly worried about him leaving for the day and even warned that “the roof’s gonna come off, Dad.”
After the accident, he eventually saw that Learjet 60’s roof has been torn apart just as his daughter told him.
The plane crash killed two pilots and two of his friends, his personal assistant Chris Barker and body guard Che Still. The only survivors were him and Adam ‘DJ AM’ Goldstein who likewise passed away less than a year after the incident due to drug overdose.
Travis, on the other hand, suffered third-degree burns and was in critical condition.
Airplane Crash: Facts and Figures
According to the information released by StatisticsBrain, the odds of being killed on a single airline flight is 1 in 29.4 million. The number of fatalities per million flight hours, however, is 12.25. The survival rate of passengers on a fatal crash is at 24%.
The most recent airplane crashes reported in the media include the Germanwings Flight 9525 which killed 150 people last March 24, 2015. Indonesia Flight 8501, on the other hand, claimed 162 lives when it went down last December 28, 2014.
The most common causes of tragic airplane crashes include pilot error, weather, mechanical error, and sabotage, among many others.

This 7-Year-Old Made $11 Million In 2017 Alone By Making Videos On YouTube
If you have a toddler at home who loves watching YouTube videos, there is absolutely no way that you haven’t heard about Ryan’ Toy Review.
It is a YouTube toy-review channel wherein the host is a kid himself. The kid is the 7-year-old Ryan who features toys and board games that they actually play with.
Ryan, together with his Mommy and Daddy started his channel when he was three. He started as just another fan of toy-review videos when he asked his parents if he can have his own channel.
They created one and posted videos of him they started in March 2015.
Their first video was of him buying a toy in the store, going home and then playing with it. As of today that video already has over 30 million views.
By July 2015, they posted a video with Disney’s Cars theme and it went viral.
The channel then grew to a whopping 10 million subscribers! The subscribers alone are enough to give them $1 million a month. What more with the other views and advertisements.
Ryan made it to the Forbes’ annual list of highest-earning YouTube celebrities.
Before, their videos were only of him and his Daddy. Mommy was always behind the camera and just taking the video.
In November 2016, she revealed herself, as 2 more addition to their family was added. Ryan has two twin sisters Emma and Kate.
Along with this, they created another channel where they feature their adventures as a family. They called it “Ryan’s Family Review” where they can be seen enjoying the day.
When Kate and Emma learned to walk, their whole fandom rejoiced with them. Unlike Ryan which we first saw when he was already 3, the viewers were able to watch Kate and Emma and all their milestones.
In 2017 alone, Ryan and his family generated around $11 million pretax, according to Elite Readers.
Woman Defends Choice after ‘Ugly Boyfriend’ Gets Bashed Online
It is sad that society feels the need to judge others based on their looks and their choices in life, including how well they match with their partners based on outward appearances and status in life.
For many, ugly people should only be in a relationship with equally ugly people while the good-looking ones should also have a relationship with those who look great. But who’s to say what’s ugly and what’s good-looking, anyway?
A beautiful woman was recently bashed after posting photos of her boyfriend because netizens think the fat, ‘ugly’ guy doesn’t deserve her at all. Seeing that she’s skinny, people also wished Linh My Nguyen had a fit boyfriend who looked handsome.
While some pointed out that Linh isn’t exactly a beauty queen but just someone fair and slim, others said even if she was the most beautiful girl in the world (by whose standards, we wonder), it would still be unfair for others to judge her boyfriend just because he doesn’t look like the most handsome guy in the world!
But for Linh, love isn’t all about looks. She feels happy with her boyfriend; thus, even if he might not be a handsome guy, she loves him with all her heart and doesn’t wish she fell for someone more handsome.
The young lady said she is proud of her boyfriend and that she would continue defending him from bashers, saying he is the ‘love of her life’ and she is actually hoping they would be together forever!
To the world, he might not be handsome but for Linh, he’s the most handsome guy in the world – and if her heart feels that, who are we to say she deserves someone better, anyway?
Mark Ruffalo Praises Pinoy Maker of Realistic Action Figures
He portrays the Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and must have seen a lot of action figures of himself as well as other members of the team but American actor Mark Ruffalo, was quite surprised and amazed at the works of Pinoy artist Elmer Padilla who gifted him with one.
It can be recalled that Padilla went viral a couple of months ago after someone posted about his incredible action figures made from discarded slippers and rubber scraps.
The post propelled Padilla to fame, with people expressing amazement that the construction worker from Samar who went to Cavite to find a better life could actually make such incredibly realistic action figures out of recycled materials.
It is unknown how Padilla was able to send the Hulk action figure to Ruffalo but the actor was definitely amazed over what he did.
Quite grateful over the Hulk action figure and surprised that it was made from slippers, the actor posted photos on Facebook, captioning it with, “Believe it or not, this #Hulk doll is made out of recycled tsinelas (that’s tagalog for flip-flops). @elmerboytsinelas made this for me so I just wanted to give a nice shoutout. Not only is this inventively creative, but it’s sustainable and just pure awesome! Thank you Elmer!”
The post has since gone viral, gaining over 20k likes and 3.4k shares. We’re quite willing to bet Ruffalo’s post will further increase Padilla’s fame. Would he be on the way to making more action figures for the international market? That is not impossible!
Ruffalo’s post is also quite timely as they are promoting “Thor: Ragnarok”. Padilla could be getting a lot of orders for Avengers action figures.
We can hardly wait for other Hollywood stars to also post about Padilla on their social media pages soon!
