I Want To Go There: An Airplane Hotel High Above The Costa Rican Jungle

There’s first class and then there’s FIRST CLASS.

Joining the mile high club just got so much easier thanks to the genius who decided to turn an emptied-out Boeing airplane from the 1960s into a hotel suite situated high above the Costa Rican jungle. Keep reading »

Airplane

T-Mobile customers now have the option of texting and photo messaging at 35,000 feet on planes equipped with WiFi (which, these days, is most of them). I realize this should logically be a reason to celebrate, especially since T-Mobile’s service seems to be the most insufferable of all phone companies and their customers deserve a treat like this for putting up with it. What I worry about, though, is whether this could be a gateway for things to escalate into the ability to make full-on lengthy phone calls in the air. Some people love the idea of that, but it makes me a nervous wreck. Can you imagine being trapped in a metal tube for several hours with someone who won’t stop loudly yakking away on their iPhone? Besides, what do we really need to text about up in the sky unless, say, our plane got diverted to another city and we wanted to frantically text our aunt to tell her not to start driving to the airport to pick us up? I can’t be the only one who occasionally secretly loves the fact that I’m forced to disconnect for a little while when I’m in the air. The only definite positive of this is that it will open many new doors for creative sexting. [Travel And Leisure] [Image via Shutterstock]

Brit’s Brain Goes Haywire Over New York Subway System

Rules For Commuters

Things you shouldn't do while riding public transportation. Read More »

British journalist Bim Adewunmi has been in New York for the last few weeks and apparently taking the subway has driven her insane. Writing in The Guardian, she expresses the feeling in the most colorful way possible:

“Think of a book with an opening scene set in a village in rural England. There’s a winding country lane, and in the distance can be heard the relentlessly tuneful whistle of a milkman, and the gentle moo of a cow. Yes, there are still milkmen and there are still cows, but look closer: the cows are wearing smart white coats and jaunty little hats, delivering milk extracted from humans. Terrifying image, isn’t it?”

Everything about her description of the MTA is glorious. Some more highlights: Keep reading »

Passenger Shaming Instagram Gloriously Calls Out The Rudest Flyers Among Us

Folks On A Flight
These 10 people will always be on your plane. Read More »

At last, a solution to those select selfish douchebags who ruin everyone else’s flying experience — embarrass them on the internet! In elementary school, whenever we leaned back in our chairs, scratched up our desks, or generally defiled anything that was communal property, our teacher would ask, “You wouldn’t behave like that in your own house, would you?” (Sometimes the answer really was “yes,” but that’s neither here nor there.) The Instagram and Facebook account Passenger Shaming asks this exact question without ever having to actually say it. Passenger Shaming is awesomely self-described as “photos of assholes taken by anonymous flight attendants & passengers from all over the world. Don’t end up here.” It’s captured shots of passengers kicking up their bare feet next other flyers’ heads, making gigantic messes under their seats, peeing in the bathroom sink, and just being all-around shitty people to the hundred or so other passengers who are stuck in a metal tube with them.
