First Class Envy and Sky Mall

First and foremost allow me to comment on the two weirdest things about flying: first class envy and Sky Mall.

Why the irrational pang of jelousy while passing people seated in business? I'm never jealous of people with expensive cars, for example.

And then there's the usual perusing of Sky Mall, wondering if I really do want a toaster oven, speakers in the shower, and a wall-mount jewelry armoire.

I love that there are more and more satires on the bizarre nature of Sky Mall cropping up all over the internet. Here are a few favorites:

Penny Arcade
Ape Culture
