“To me, an airplane is a great place to diet”*…

 

Have we reached peak delivery service? Just in case you had a craving for airline food for some reason, there’s now a company in Germany that will bring it to you. Air Food One is a subscription food delivery service that has teamed up with grocery company AllYouNeed.com and LGS Sky Chefs to bring leftover airline food right to the door of anyone living in Germany – the service is only available there for now…

The rest of this tasteless tale at “Air Food One Delivers Airline Food Right To Your Door.”

As we ask for the vegetarian option (which is available from Air Food One), we might recall that it was on this date in 1999, at the urging of animal rights activist (and actress) Brigitte Bardot, that the Russian Duma passed legislation forbidding Russians from eating their pets (or slaughtering them for their furs/skins).  On January 6 of the following year, Vladimir Putin, in office for less than a week, vetoed the bill.

Vladimir Putin has often insisted that fertility is key both to Russia’s internal security and to Russia becoming more influential on the global stage.  More specifically, he’s been enjoining his countrymen (and women) to have three children per family.

Now (The Moscow Times reports), in support of this thrust, Putin has enlisted that most potent of aphrodisiacs, sweet soul music… in the persons of the Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman, and Nathan Morris– AKA, Boyz II Men.

As we slip into something more comfortable, we might spare a thought for Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky; he died on this date in 1881.  The author of eleven novels (including  Crime and PunishmentThe Idiot, and The Brothers Karamazov), three novellas, seventeen short novels, and three essays, Dostoyevsky is considered one of the greatest “psychologists” in world literature– and the cartographer of the Russian soul.
