It's A Simple, Yet Suprising Reason . . . . .

Why Does Airline Food Taste So Bad?

“At 35,000 feet, the first thing that goes is your sense of taste,” explained Mickels. He explained that the quality of the food and its ingredients isn’t to blame, it’s the way you experience it. It’s even been tested: The Fraunhofer Institute, a research organization based in Germany, did a study on why a dish that would be delicious in a fine dining restaurant could be, as Mickels put it, “so dull in the air.” In a mock aircraft cabin, researchers tried out ingredients at both sea level and in a pressurized condition—and the differences in taste were startling.

The tests revealed that the cabin atmosphere—pressurized at 8,000 feet—combined with the cool, dry cabin air “makes your taste buds go numb, almost as if you had a cold,” explained Mickels. In fact, our perception of saltiness and sweetness drops by around 30 percent at high altitude. It also doesn’t help that the decreased humidity in the cabin dries out your nose and dulls the olfactory sensors essential for tasting the flavor of an ingredient or dish.

It's Hard To Find A Good One Of These . . . . .


La Bomba torta ($8) which comes with Milanesa (breaded steak), carne de puerco (pork), and jamon (ham), along with cheese, pineapple, and bacon. Everything includes lettuce, tomato, mayo, and a spread of refried beans. The shock doesn't end with the ingredients.

Every member of Congress has a subscription to Hustler — here’s why

So you’d think a free subscription to Hustler would be welcomed by the people on the hill. It’s not but there is nothing they can do about it.

Larry Flynt, publisher of Hustler and champion of free speech, has sent a monthly copy of Hustler to every congressional office for the last 30 years. Members of Congress can’t stop it. But oh how they’ve tried.

Following the complaints from 264 congressional offices in 1984, the U.S. Postal Service asked the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to block the mailings. But that request failed when the court ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped. The court wrote:

Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress. Members are not forced to read the magazine or other of the mail they receive in volume. We cannot imagine that Congressional offices all lack wastebaskets.

For Hustler, it was a First Amendment issue. This was Flynt’s right to petition the government, he argued, and the court agreed. Or as Flynt told The Hill in 2011, “Moses freed the Jews, Lincoln freed the slaves, and I just wanted to free all the neurotics.” 

Thirty years later, Flynt keeps sending the mag, to all 535 congressional members.
