L♥ve Locks Around The World (Interactive Map)


My goal is to document as many known ‘Love Lock’ locations Around the World. Do you know of any more ‘Love Lock’ locations that are not on the map yet, please share them in the comment section so i can add them to the map! 🙂

A ‘love lock’ or ‘love padlock’ is a padlock which lovers, sweethearts or individuals lock to a bridge, fence, gate, or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Typically their names or initials are inscribed on the padlock and the key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love.
Since the 2000s, love locks have proliferated at an increasing number of locations worldwide. They are now mostly treated by municipal authorities as litter or vandalism due to the damage they can cause, public safety, and the cost of removing the padlocks. However, there are authorities who embrace them and who use them as fundraising projects, art or tourism attractions.
So please remember before you hang your ‘Love Lock’ somewhere that you have permission to do so!

Discovery: At least seven planets orbit TRAPPIST-1


At about 40 light-years (235 trillion miles) from Earth, the system of planets is relatively close to us, in the constellation Aquarius. Because they are located outside of our solar system, these planets are scientifically known as exoplanets.

This exoplanet system is called TRAPPIST-1, named for The Transiting Planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope (TRAPPIST) in Chile. In May 2016, researchers using TRAPPIST announced they had discovered three planets in the system. Assisted by several ground-based telescopes, including the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope, Spitzer confirmed the existence of two of these planets and discovered five additional ones, increasing the number of known planets in the system to seven.

“Don’t Believe Everything You Read or Hear” (No Matter How Trustworthy The Source)


The world is filled with information, but also a lot of misinformation, presented as if it were the truth. No single truth purveyor, no matter how reliable, should be considered an infallible source of accurate information.

Don’t just look at a usually-reliable source to do all of the thinking, judging, and weighing for you. People are people and people make mistakes and/or act from various motives and intentions.

Even professors may sometimes pass along unverifiable rumor as if it were the truth. And even textbooks frequently include numerous factual errors.

So always use your own mind, do your own research and check and double check the facts and sources of the things you read or hear.

Here are some tips to help you ..
