Ever tried to block out painful memories of in-flight meals? You're not alone in your disgust at what passes for nourishment at 700 feet. Taking a long flight inevitably means having to eat the grub offered, But honestly, if you've ever had a wonderful meal in the sky, chances are it was one you smuggled in with your carry-on (more common now that domestic carriers have scaled back or eliminated meal service). Turns out not everyone thinks a plane is simply a means of transportation, but a place where real food should be served.

Now you can commiserate with people who yearn for quality -- ar at least recognizable -- chow in the air. The blog Funny & Interesting Email Forwards offers a forum where readers from around the globe upload pictures and guesstimated descriptions of the meals they've confronted in flight ("some sort of chocolate desert," "egg product," "brown lumps of meat," "packets of goodness"). Hilarious.

The most appealing meal we spotted at Funny & Interesting is graavlax and rye bread followed by chocolate cake, served in first class on Scandinavian Airlines. Scariest? The JALways mystery pink substance. Vote for your favorite posts while trying to control your nausea.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
