#Take a travel toothbrush and toothpaste, or just small versions of these. If you're the kind of person who needs to brush their teeth after every meal or if you just want to avoid that gross "haven't-brushed-my-teeth-in-a-while" feeling in your mouth, then you may be well served by taking a small toothbrush and toothpaste on the flight. Though it won't be super easy to brush your teeth in the tiny airplane bathroom, it's better than having a mossy mouth.[[Image:Prepare for a Long Plane Ride Step 6.jpg|center]]

Really informative!
Great tips as always.

We must be insured prior traveling. Whenever I plan a trip, I prefer researching for insurance coverage at http://www.visitorscoverage.com/. It makes comparing and buying policy much easier.

===Responding in an Emergency===
#Treat anyone with a head injury as if they have a spinal injury. The best rule about assessing whether a victim has a spinal injury is to assume that they do. This is because the consequences of spinal injury are severe and usually permanent, and mistreating someone with a spinal injury – even if you have the best intentions – can seriously worsen the injury and outcome. Any victim with an injury to their head, neck or back should automatically be treated as if they have a spinal injury.<ref>http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/spinal-cord-injury/basics/causes/con-20023837</ref>

#Give CPR if necessary. Observe whether the victim is breathing on their own, as spinal injury can sometimes affect ability to breathe spontaneously. Look to see if their chest is rising with breath, or feel under their nose for air. The only time you should move the victim's head – short of being in immediate peril – is if you have to provide the [[Perform Rescue Breathing|rescue breathing]] or chest compressions of [[Do CPR on an Adult|CPR]].

#*To give rescue breaths, do NOT lift the victim's chin to open an airway if you can avoid it. Instead perform what is called the Jaw Thrust maneuver: Kneel at the top of the victim's head, use both hands one on each side to hold the angles of their lower jaw, and lift upward with both hands.<ref>https://meds.queensu.ca/central/assets/modules/basic-airway-management/simple_airway_maneuvers.html</ref> This technique may be slightly safer for spinal injury victims. Unfortunately, this requires a second person present to perform the rescue breathing while you hold the jaw upward.

#Recognize symptoms of spinal injury. If no healthcare professional is on site, you can evaluate the victim for signs and symptoms of spinal injury. First observe the victim – if they are unconscious or only somewhat conscious, their neck or back is at a strange angle, or they have lost control of their bladder or bowels and soiled themselves, assume spinal injury. Also treat them as if they have spinal injury if they won't or can't move their neck, seem to have trouble breathing, or they tell you they have intense pain in their neck, back or head. Another tell-tale sign of spinal injury is change in strength or sensation in their limbs.<ref>http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/spinal-cord-injury/basics/symptoms/con-20023837</ref>

#Pull the victim by their clothing. In a situation that absolutely requires you to move the victim, do it in the least damaging way possible. Grab their shirt collar and use your forearms to support their head while pulling the body in a straight line.

Alternatives are menstrual/soft cups or reusable, cloth pads. You'll need about 3 liners and 3 pads or tampons to last you through a work or school day. Be sure to change every 4-6 hours.

*Don't blame or hate the people that get away from you, most of them are just scared of stopping being "normal" if they start hanging out with you. Normality and conformity to standard social behavior brings a sense of security and belonging to these people, keep in mind most people lack self-confidence and are scared of individuality and possible rejections from their peers. Standing out from the crow may seem romantic in a book but in real life is different and even detrimental if you are not confident enough in yourself and your individuality. Being special and mysterious requires a strong soul.
 
*Some people (specially other guys) may begin to hate or envy you, just don't pay attention to them.

*You may be called a lot of names (emo, weirdo, outcast) just don't pay attention to these people an continue being special, remember, they are just trying to figure you out by categorizing you.
 
*Following these tips is a sure path to becoming a loner. People around you may feel a bit intimidated in your presence and your individualism and nonconformity to standards and common human social behavior (like small talks, smiles, hugs) will push some people away. People may stop inviting you to parties anymore and you may even lose some friends. I repeat, this is not for everybody, if you don't want to be alone forget all you just read. If you already are a loner and are happy with that, then I encourage you to follow these tips and become more special than you already are.

*Sometimes if you're bored pretend you're a person in a dungeon and if you don't clean up at a certain time the evil dungeon keeper (your Mom) will come and find out you didn't do it. And if you finish on time you are rewarded of leaving the dungeon! It can be fun for younger people.

* When placing a rod behind a sliding door, use PVC, wood, or aluminum.  Avoid steel, as they can be lifted with strong magnets.  The PVC, wood, or aluminum will give a burglar ample resistance to opening the door.  Once they feel it is too hard, they will move on to an easier target.

*You can purchase either double-cylinder or single-cylinder locks. A double-cylinder lock requires a key to open from either side, whereas a single-cylinder lock only requires a key on one side. Double-cylinder locks thus provide more protection for your home, especially if you have nearby windows that a criminal could reach through to unlock the door from the inside. Check your fire code before installing double cylinder locks, as this may be a violation. Also consider that you don't want to have to hunt for the key if you need to get out of your house in a hurry!
 
* Add a security camera. Even 1 or 2 economical cameras can deter would- be thieves. You can set them up to record going to your computer or phone. Uniden makes good systems that won't break the bank which you can find on Amazon.com or eBay.com
