Best in First Class

1 Sep

Some lucky travelers always fly in first or business class, dine at the best restaurants and climb into beds prepped by personal butlers at swanky five-star hotels. Everyone else? We may get to sample the luxe life now and then, but most of us can only imagine the upscale amenities offered by some airlines and top-drawer hotels. Come along on a virtual visit to see the best that first class has to offer.


Best and Worst Airline Seats

1 Sep

Whether your flight is short or long — but especially if it’s long — where you sit on the airplane can make all the difference in how much you enjoy the trip. That’s why sites such as SeatGuru and Seatexpert, which evaluate the desirability of every seat on just about every type of commerical aircraft, are so popular, and why so many airlines keep raising the bar — and the price — for the most comfortable seats. Here’s a look at what your money might buy in the sky, starting with the best seats.

World’s Most Hair-Raising Airports

1 Sep

Technological improvements continue to make air travel safer every year. But just because there hasn’t been a fatal commercial plane crash in the U.S. since 2009 doesn’t mean that certain airports don’t quicken your pulse just a bit. Short runways, steep descents and unpredictable surfaces can make a thrill ride out of getting a 987,000-pound vehicle (the maximum weight of a 747) on or off the ground.

33 Things You Don’t Need To Feel Bad About

1. Turning down invites to places whether it’s because you have responsibilities or you simply don’t want to.

2. Hitting a (possibly suicidal) bird while driving.

3. Being late for work. They likely keep you after your scheduled shift from time to time; so don’t feel guilty for clocking in a few minutes late.

4. When you miscalculate and have to leave a lower tip than you typically would.

5. Being afraid of the dark. (With all of the paranormal movies and television shows coming out in recent years, our imaginations are being fed terrifying material.)

6. Falling asleep during Oscar nominated films.

7. Rejecting advances from a person you’re not interested in. (It’s better than leading them on, though it may not feel like it at the time.)

8. Waiting for someone to finish his or her ramblings so you can begin telling your more compelling story.

9. Going number two in a friend’s toilet.

10. Not understanding Inception. Or any movies with baffling plots and confusing storylines for that matter.

11. Being emotionally invested in a reality television series.

12. Getting intoxicated on a school or work night.

13. Stopping a few reps early on a set during your workout.

14. Enjoying Nickelback’s music.

15. Nodding your head and smiling after not hearing what a person said. Once you’ve said “What” multiple times it’s easier to just pretend to have heard, and move on with your day.

16. Making friends with someone specifically because you mutually dislike another person.

17. Not being a fan of Starbucks, or coffee in general.

18. Deciding at some point that you’re simply not going to be productive for the remainder of day.

19. Snatching the right-of-way from the possession of hesitant drivers.

20. Knowing a list of plenty things that you would wish on your worst enemy.

21. Having blatantly biased opinions about 80s and 90s television programs being significantly better than all others.

22. Taking advantage of opportunities to nap despite the flawless weather outside.

23. Not worrying about how satisfied customers are after you’ve put in two weeks notice.

24. Drenching specific foods in either syrup, ranch, ketchup — or some other condiment that they aren’t traditionally soaked in.

25. Finding cartoon or video game characters legitimately attractive.

26. Wasting hours upon end contemplating life’s deepest wonders — e.g. how graffiti finds its way to signs above highway and interstate overpasses.

27. Purchasing a Zune at some point, despite the existence of iPods.

28. Keeping up with the Kardashians by regularly or binge watching episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians

29. Falling for someone’s lies or deception. (Just be more cautious so it doesn’t become habitual.)

30. Utilizing Google Chrome’s ‘incognito window’ daily, for a number of different reasons.

31. Liking Batman & Robin starring George Clooney. And I don’t mean ironically, I mean legitimately finding pleasure in those 125 minutes of film.

32. Not being able to get into using Instagram.

33. That you don’t feel bad about something that seems like you should

10 Food Lover Problems

The fizzy Mountain Dew I took swigs of to wash down a mouthful of gooey brownies viciously burned my throat. This was a thought I once had that led to a revelation. An eye-opening notion that I was in possession of the most disgusting, absurd diet ever. Over time I recognized that many of my daily issues, were in fact a result of my poor eating habits. Just to scratch the fried, crispy surface – these are the trials and tribulations that an unhealthy eating, food-loving soul deals with far too often.

1.The inability to twist doorknobs or open things because of the finger grease acquired while eating potato chips. It’s even worse when the thing you’re trying to open is edible, because it really shines a guilty spotlight on the situation, if you already know you’re overeating.

2. When 24/7 fast food joints shutdown their ice cream machine because it’s nighttime. Milkshake or ice cream cravings are intense and passionate, so the only real way of halting such powerful desires is the actual consumption of one.

3.Losing everything in your stomach, along with your dignity in the bathroom of a Taco Bell, because the prices were so low and the food was so tasty entering your body. However the exiting process of mystery meat filled tacos and burritos is never a pleasant one.

4.The challenging task of driving home after purchasing fast food. The specific conflict that always arises involves resisting the urge to inhale most or all of the hot, salty French fries before you even get to sit and enjoy the burger that came along with them.

5.Accidentally leaving unprofessional orange and red fingerprints all over paper documents due to constant consumption of Cheetos, Hot Cheetos and Doritos. Colored fingertips are the surefire sign of a cheese/spicy flavored chip lover — they basically serve as our badge of honor.

6. A constantly upgraded wardrobe as a result of fluctuating weight that renders certain articles of clothing useless. The only real guarantee in my overeating life is that my socks remain consistently usable.

7. Trying to distinguish the difference between sheer boredom and actual hunger. At times they can be indistinguishable, resulting in minor gluttony.

8. Being unnervingly bothered by taking that first swipe out of the peanut butter or Nutella jar because it’s ruining a beautifully filled, smooth looking 13 ounces of deliciousness. Feels like jamming a knife through a Picasso painting every single time.

9. A growing addiction to food porn. Often it’s a struggle to complete daily tasks and errands because we’re mesmerized watching Food Network or looking up HD photographs of cookies, ice cream, cookies covered in ice cream and other sexy — oops, I mean delicious concoctions.

10. Frequently burning fingers and mouths because it’s virtually impossible to refrain from grabbing and attempting to eat freshly cooked, extremely hot food. Even with the knowledge that cooling time is necessary, attempts to resist are futile. I’ll even go back for bites in five-second intervals, as if anything has changed and the result will be less painful.
