The Bose QC15 headphones do an amazing job of cutting down airplane cabin noise. Everytime someone tried them on, their eyes went wide in amazement. They even did a better job of cutting down noise than plain old earplugs.

The best part about the QC15s is this:

The end with the switch plugs into the headphones. The "hi" setting is for your everyday MP3 player, cellphone, etc. The "lo" setting is for the airplane sound system. It keeps your ears from being blasted when the pilot or cabin crew make an announcement while you are watching a movie.

The Joy of Cup Noodles

Nissin Cup Noodles made an ordinary meal on a recent 15 hour flight into the best one ever. I eat a lot of instant noodles because it goes so well with all the vegetables we get in our CSA box, but I don't normally drink the "soup". Not during this flight though. With the sandwich that was served on the side, the Cup Noodles and its soup made for a nice hot lunch.
