Getting on an airplane can be a scary experience for most people. It’s not uncommon to experience some anxiety or fear upon boarding a plane or during the flight, especially if there’s turbulence. Given that it’s such a common and relatable issue, a TikTok user decided to share a trick they learned from a pilot that might help get over the fear of flying!
Simple Plane Theory
TikTok user, Anna Paull, decided to share some knowledge that she learned from a pilot. The goal of the video was to help lower the fear of flight that many people experience. In the video, the TikToker uses a jello cup and a napkin as visual aids to explain the plane theory. She tells viewers to imagine that the jello is the air that they’re flying in. The balled-up napkin placed in the jello cup represents the airplane. When placed in the jello, the napkin stays put and doesn’t sink. She then explains that an airplane experiences pressure from all sides, just like in the jello, which keeps it stable.
The Post Got an Excellent Response
Anna explained that, even if the plane experiences turbulence, it’s not going to fall because the pressure from all sides is keeping it in place. It turns out that many TikTok users and viewers found this interesting and reassuring. The post quickly gained over 13 million views and over two million likes. Many TikTokers supported and appreciated her message with many of them backing her up in the comments!
Does It Alleviate Fear of Flying?
How well this post alleviated people’s fear of flying can best be seen in over 28,000 comments that the video received. One comment shared wisdom from another pilot saying turbulence is like a bump or pothole in the road. Another joked about how they would calm people during turbulence by saying it’s only wobbly jelly. Although fear of flight will likely persevere in many, it’s always good to get informed and see scary things, such as turbulence, from a different perspective.
Asus Just Announced Their Fantastically Fast and New Gamer Phone
Asus ROG Phone 5 has been a leading phone on the market for some time now, but it does not seem to have been enough, because Asus has revealed a quicker and more extreme version of its flashy gaming phone less than five months after it was released.
Asus ROG Phone 5s has an extremely similar design to its predecessor and is available in a base model with a slightly more imaginative ‘Pro’ variant, but with some remarkable upgrades: a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ chip, a faster 360Hz touch sampling rate, and an OLED back color display for the ROG Phone 5s Pro.
Although the improvements might not seem important, it is amazing that ROG Phone 5s is the first phone with a Snapdragon 888+ chip—which is not the smartphone of Qualcomm for Snapdragon Insiders (even though this phone is also built by Asus).
For gamers, the SD888+’s slightly higher clock speeds should work well with its faster 360Hz touch sample rate (up from 300Hz on the previous model) to deliver a more responsive reaction for touch controls, which is very nice if you’re really trying to get every last drop of performance.
Asus ROG Phone 5 and 5s Prices
With prices of less than 30,000 Latest Taiwan dollars in the standard ROG Phone 5s (about $1.075) and an increase of NTD 37,990 (around $1.365) for ROG Phone 5s Pro, the new phone of the brand is not inexpensive. It is clear to understand where that amount is going with the base model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and the highly sophisticated variant with 18GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
Beautiful OLED Display
What may most likely be the new rear-mounted OLED display of the ROG Phone 5s Pro, which now has six pre-configured animations that are designed to indicate an incoming call, to start a game, or simply plug in the complement or accessory. Is it a little bit too much? Sure, but an over-the-rear screen feels right at home on a gadget like this. And you can always design your own animations if you’re not really glad about Asus’ pre-installed animations.
Most ROG Phone 5’s specs stayed identical, with a gigantic 6000 mAh, a large 6.73-inch AMOLED, three rear (64MP main, 13MP, and 5MP macro), integrated DAC, and two USB-C connections. Digital cameras have been added to this range. Asus did not meddle with the built-in touch buttons of the previous generation either, so you can still play precisely without having to plug up an external controller.
Sadly, because of the position of the rear screen. There is no great option to add wireless charging, so you need to rely on 65-watt cable charging on the phone very quickly.
The major downfall is that, while ROG Phone 5s will go on sale in the Taiwanese home area of Asus, the company does not yet have any official plans to offer the Taiwanese ROG Phone 5. This means you will need to rely on third-party importers to obtain one when you desire what could be the quickest Android phone in the world.
