AirPods—Apple's signature wireless headphones—are super convenient.

There are no wires to get tangled, the sound is crystal clear and they feature the sleek, efficient design Apple is famous for.

They're also super expensive and super easy to lose.


New Yorker Ashley Mayer learned that the hard way when one of her AirPods fell onto the treacherous Manhattan subway tracks.

What followed was a saga for the ages.


Ashley thought all hope was lost, but the AirPod was in the same spot the next day.

Jumping onto the tracks wasn't an option.

So Mayer got resourceful.

The mission was on, with only a few hiccups.


Though the feat occurred off-camera, Mayer put a wad of duct tape at the end of the broom to retrieve the treasured AirPod.

It worked!

And though some were divided on whether she should put the subway AirPod back in her ear, she couldn't let her efforts be in vain.

Soon, Twitter showered her with congratulations.






Happy listening, Ashley. You deserve it.

I admit that I am not a picky eater by any stretch of the imagination. I eat just about anything. I also consider myself pretty adventurous; when I travel, eating good food and trying the local cuisine is at the top of my list!

But even I would be hard-pressed to eat durian or even balut.

Would I say absolutely not? I'll have to get back to you after a trip to Southeast Asia. The jury's out for now.

People had very strong opinions on the food they want nothing to do with after Redditor KentuckyFriedEel asked the online community,

"What dish/food can f*** right off?"

Death is inevitable. It's a truth we're always trying to outrun. Yet we do so many things to speed up the process.

Everyday we are helping ourselves to an early grave. And there are so many ways to avoid that trip. People are telling us all of the time how we can be healthier and better. There are literally books and blogs about ways to keep on keeping on.

So why don't we try and follow some of these ideas. And maybe we should begin trying to pinpoint were we are off and how we could try and avoid that which is poisoning us. Like carbs, well too many carbs, at least for me.

Redditor u/Babynouil wanted everyone to listen up, to make sure we live as long as possible, by asking:

What's something a lot of people do, but don't realise it's shrinking their life expectancy ?
