In these shelter-in-place times, The World on Wheels takes a look at a couple of times that happened to us while traveling.

We've all had those moments when we realize we're still in the real world...just a different neighborhood. Today's new report on The World on Wheels highlights those moment where maybe a facepalm is the most reasonable response. "Can't you live with it?"- Unforgettable but True Quotes From the Road.

Well, my "projectile vomiting  at 40,000 feet" horror story refuses to give up the ghost!, um, liked it so much, they've published it to gross out their own loyal membership. If you haven't read it yet, fasten your seatbelts and enjoy!

Why does our home team's stadium rank so low on our Fields of Dreams list (17 out of 19)? It all has to do with how they treat their disabled fans. It's Angel Stadium today on The World on Wheels:

Forget your other "horror" stories: THIS is true horror, at least for me.

A true hotel horror story, from the age of service cutbacks: a little boy finds a used condom tucked into the sheets, blows it up as a balloon, and comes down with some unidentified infection in his mouth. This, of course, makes the stories of rampant bed bugs pale. Not to mention the occasional stories about black-light inspections of hotel rooms that reveal various icky substances over all kinds of surfaces.

How can hotels get away with this, to squeeze a few more pennies of profit out of their business? Shoujld there not be state inspectors running unannounced white-glove tests? How many people, and especially children, have to get sick or be eaten alive by bedbugs before something is done?
