The Morning Shave

Authorities Say Man Was Killed Trying to Take a Selfie With a Bear. – But did he get the shot? If not, he died in vain. Ok, just kidding! Seriously though, please don’t risk your life for a photograph that most people won’t care about.

Six New TSA PreCheck Airlines. – I love it when a membership I’ve already paid for becomes even more valuable. Most of us will never fly any of these airlines, but it’s good to know that TSA PreCheck is expanding. I have flown SAS to Stockholm with Timmy, and I highly recommend it, especially with their kids fly free promotion.

Why You Always Board Planes on the Left. – Very interesting facts about something that most of us don’t even think about. It makes sense so that airports and pilots don’t have to change up every flight or two. Standardization is a great thing to simplify life.

Negative Changes Coming To Chase Sapphire Reserve. – Big thanks to reader Larry for sharing this article. I’ve had way too many cards the past few years to qualify under Chase’s 5/24 rule, but I’ve been laying low recently in the hopes of getting one of these cards. It’s a shame that I haven’t been able to take advantage of these lucrative benefits.

Expert: Resort fees possible blame for dip in tourism. – Hotels are getting overly bold in the ways that they charge travelers. Resort fees are horrible because even if you don’t use any of the amenities, you are still getting charged. H/T to Gary for sharing this.
