The cabins of airplanes are pressurized with an extremely low humidity level of just 4%, largely to reduce the risk of internal corrosion; the only humidity in an airplane cabin comes from other people’s breath. The problem with low humidity, though, is it causes our sinuses to close. This is why you always feel as if you have a slight cold when you fly. For economy passengers, this means mass-produced meals that are frozen and then reconstituted. Even in business class, the meals being served aren’t fresh. While each meal will have been individually prepared by a catering company at the airport instead of mass-produced and purchased in bulk, a business-class customer can still look forward to a meal that is at least several hours old before it has been served.

Why Airline Food Sucks

EWWWW morning airline facts

I actually JUST had my first AirBnB experience this past weekend. I don’t care for AirBnb and only booked this particular space out of a last minute decision (read: all hotels in bumblefuck Massachusetts were no less than $400/night a week before the visit). it’s not really the platform that bothers me, it’s the people on the platform. I don’t like the idea of spending a night in some stranger’s bed. it’s just weird. and yes, I know hotels are probably the same thing, but I don’t know. I just can’t get over the fact that I’m in some stranger’s bed, using their sheets. also, how do you trust this stranger renting your place isn’t going to steal all your stuff? you’re just letting some person stay in your house? that’s a bit odd. I don’t even like my friends crashing at my place let alone just rent out my room to someone I’ve never met before. also, this argument that AirBnB rents out spaces on the cheap is just false. yea, the prices on AirBnB are probably lower than hotel rates, but in a lot of cases (primarily major cities) they’re comparable. and depending on the space or layout, it’s probably within the same range as a budget hotel. so you’re not saving too much money. also there’s additional booking fees that AirBnB tack on so you gotta deal with that nonsense. alllsssooo I know way too many people who move to New York or travel often (yea, all you fucking travel blogger people) on purpose so they mark up their rooms/apartments at like outrageous rates. honestly, one person I know bought a 4BR in Bushwick cash and then rented the 3 other rooms at $500+ than the original price because they AND I QUOTE “don’t like the idea of paying rent” and wanted to get their “house guests” to cover the costs instead. so, no, sorry I can’t sign this petition because these are the reasons I can barely afford to stay in the city.
