Is this yours?

Like any normal human being, I have many qualms about flying. The most obvious being of course that the plane crashes or is taken over by terrorists. But the most unfortunately common and most annoying one is losing my luggage. Most of us like to pack some of our best stuff when we travel especially when on vacation, you want to look your best and represent awesome-ness in another location. Finding out your luggage doesn't make it to your destination is such a pain in the ass.

This awesome site, Is This your Luggage, puts up lost luggage and its contents for people to claim. According to the site creator, an airport will keep lost luggage for a while and try to find its owner but after some time the stuff is given away to be auctioned off with the profits going to charity. This is where our hero steps in, bids on items then photographs not just the luggage but as aforementioned, the contents inside and hopes to have the owner claim it. Isn't that hilarious? Of course, maybe not so hilarious if you've packed some extremely personal stuff but luckily it's all anonymous.

ha, that's kind of scary, but maybe just what we need.

I'm absolutely terrified of flying. I do it often, but the fear persists. Worrying about luggage just adds to my anxiety...eeek.
