If you have ever been on a flight, you must have heard the  various instructions given by flight attendants. Many people follow the rules, but there are those who defy the rules, assuming that it couldn’t possibly do any harm.

 

Your life is in your hands!

Your electronic devices’ signals can interrupt the electronic devices on the plane. It can even cause the plane to malfunction or crash. But, technology has changed and this isn’t the most important reason to worry about anymore.
