Cyclist cheats death by changing flights - twice
Maarten de Jonge is a Dutch cyclist riding for the UCI Continental Bike Aid. Surely he's had quite a few near-death situations during his biking career - things like this are unavoidable in traffic. Yet nothing in the life of an average human can be compared to how he cheated death twice when preparing for flights.
De Jonge, 31, was scheduled to take both Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 AND Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in 2014. He changed his mind both times, though, so he didn't board any of these flights. The results: one plane crashed in the ocean, one plane shot down in Ukraine, and one cyclist who has survived both times.

Whether his survival can be attributed to luck or the preparedness of his security detail is unknown.
Castro survived all the attempts to his life. He passed away on November 25th, 2016, at the age of 90. The cause of his death was not disclosed.

People who use a Mac can use a built-in method to record anything being played on their iPhone or iPad. Apple made the smart decision to allow users to save the screen display as a movie.
However, this easy method requires a Lightning cable to allow you to record from iOS to your Mac. Naturally, the whole process cannot be done on a Windows machine either. In my quest for easier recording without the need for a cable, I found a very useful AirPlay solution.
