Bedbugs on airplanes?
Airliners need to spend a lot of time in the air to pay their way. So how do airlines make sure they aren’t swimming with germs?

Your body is a home to more than you...
 
The human microbiome is a community of bacteria that lives in our body. They have been found to play a key role in the functioning of our bodily functions. The variation within the microbiome plays a deterministic role in areas such as our immune response and also obesity. 

Researchers use 'germ-free' mice to identify the link between bacteria and the biological functioning of the mice. These mice are delivered by cesarean section and raised in sterile plastic bubbles and can only exist in labs. They have shrunken hearts and lungs and also abnormalities in their intestine. 

The increasing use of antibiotics have been linked to a rise of obesity and also allergies. Apart from that, the microbiome also varies across geographical locations and cultures.

The interdependence between the human body and the bacteria within us, and the interdependence between the bacteria and our environment and diet has led me to think is it ever possible for humans to live in a non-earth planet (such as Mars)?

Bought a really cheap 128G uSD card suspecting it was a fake...  Testing on it arriving in the mail confirmed it was only a 8G card...  Checking the model # brought up this site which is a great article explaining how to avoid buying fakes...
