Be honest. When's the last time you actually saw THIS on a commercial flight??

And as always, I'm back also promising to be a far more diligent blogger in the year 2012. (Cough, cough...clears throat.)  Okay, never mind.

Anyway, after my recent holiday travels that were solely on America's jam-packed highways this time around, I ran across this tasty morsel of food for thought:

It seems futurists and culinary visionaries have wildly varying, mind-boggling theories on how airline meals will look decades forward, but the experts seem to agree on one thing: We’re not going to merely swallow a pill in the sky and call it supper. Because after all... where would the real fun be in THAT?
