Pics of This Crazy Posh Airplane Will Have You Booking Your Next Adventure Immediately

Over the past few years, air travel has become an arguable nightmare. Between cramped seats, terrible food, weird smells, and all those extra fees that always surprise you, flying is hardly something to look forward to. 

This is a shame because air travel is often the first step to starting off a vacation you’ve been saving money and sick days for, and to have this first step marred by a rude flight attendant or the constant banging of the bathroom door often feels unacceptable.

Enter, the Airlander 10! A return to the glory days of American aviation. A nod to luxury in the skies. A beacon of hope for the future of flying.

The Airliner 10, designed and manufactured by British company Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV), is a diesel-powered, helium airship that is the largest aircraft flying today. It has been in development for years and in 2016, HAV started their first test flights. 

This admittedly did not have the best results, with the airship going nose-first into the grass on its second flight. But while HAV works on making sure the Airlander stays up in the sky, they recently released images of their interiors — and these will have you forgetting about any possible crashes. 

“We often like to think about Airlander as a cruise liner in the sky,” Tom Grundy, executive director of Hybrid Air Vehicles, said of this aircraft that boasts the pampered experience of a long-haul cruise with smoothness of air travel — complete with private bedrooms, communal lounge areas, multiple bars, and high-end dining options (options!). 

Also a point to note, the blimp looks a bit like a butt and to their credit, the makers have dubbed the aircraft the Flying Bum!

Unlike your run-of-the-mill private jet, the Airlander 10 is extremely spacious, with a 46-foot-long cabin area (bigger than most commercial airplanes), and a modular design that ingeniously can be customized depending on the journey. Traveling with your whole family and need some alone time to escape? The Airlander 10 can be configured to have private bedrooms.

Traveling with friends and want to make it more of a party-ship? Configure the interiors to create an “Infinity Lounge” while you hang out around the Altitude Bar and get your drink on.

But the real standout features, in my opinion, are the floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as the glass-bottomed floor. Pictures of the main cabin show it’s virtually covered in glass, providing guests with insane views of the topography below and the skyscape from up to 20,000 feet in the air. 

The views seem pretty unavoidable so if heights aren’t your thing, you might want to reconsider before booking a ticket on the Airlander’s maiden voyage.

The second notable feature is the fact that the Airlander 10 can take off and land on practically any flat surface, regardless of the terrain. This means the Airlander can bypass tarmac-to-tarmac journeys, going straight to natural attractions like the Great Barrier Reef, the Amazon rainforest and the Arctic Tundra — and with its eco-friendly focus, it sounds like a responsible way to enjoy these natural wonders without foregoing everyday luxuries. 

Imagine looking down at the craters of the Grand Canyon through those glass floors. Wow!

As mentioned before, the Airlander 10 is still being tested and it could be a while before it completes the necessary 200 incident-free hours of flying. There’s also no mention of pricing, but it’s probably safe to assume tickets will not be cheap. But these are minor setbacks for unequalled luxury in the sky. 

I know I’ll be getting on that waitlist.

Actor Jason Segel Is Taking Photos Next To Small Doors And People Can't Stop Laughing

It’s hard to say exactly where actor Jason Segel is right now. I’m guessing Europe. Maybe England or Belgium. Somewhere that a lot of house were built hundreds and hundreds of years ago, where being tall meant breaking five feet. At 6’4″, Segel isn’t going to fit into any of these tiny doors without bending over, but the pics he’s been taking of his wanderings through Tiny Towns are amazing:

When a bit is good, it’s good:

What a great series! We’re really hoping it continues throughout whatever vacation or shoot he is on, but all of Segel’s photos are pretty good. 

Here he is looking small, for once, next to this giant artichoke:

But the doors are the big hit:

And all the How I Met Your Mother gifs we can handle:

Marshall did hang around a lot of doors, come to think of it.

14 People Who Took Christmas Decorations To The Next Level

I’m a terrible decorator. If you’ve ever seen my idea of what a “fixed” bed looks like, you’d probably think that a second grader was behind it.

And don’t even get me started with festive decorations. Sure, I love the holidays and treating people to gifts and food and drink, but if you expect me to make a place look nice, well, you’re asking the wrong guy.

Which is why I’m mesmerized by these people who went all out on their Christmas decorations.

1. Like this guy who sawed a Christmas tree in half so it could look like it’s popping out of his home.

2. Turning old tires into enormous festive ornaments.

The Season 6 'Game Of Thrones' Blooper Reel Is Here To Keep You Sane Until Next Summer

As it turns out, there’s more to San Diego Comic Con than updates on the complex and intertwined worlds of Marvel comics. It’s also the place to be for bonus material from pretty much any T.V. show you’re binging. At this year’s convention, the powers that be released a Season Six ‘Game Of Thrones’ blooper reel— and it’s everything we hoped for and more. 

TBH, there’s nothing more fun than watching actors break character… And watching Peter Dinklage wage a war on the English language.  

We have Peter Dinklage struggling to say the word “benevolent.”

…Some unintended indecent exposure…

The ‘unintended’ part being very rare for this show.

…More of Peter Dinklage trying to say “benevolent…”

…Prop malfunctions…

…And, again, Peter Dinklage epically failing to say the word “benevolent.”

Personal favorite: some priceless footage of Dinklage finding out that he has to say the word again in another scene. 

Watch all the magic below. 

This is definitely just as good as the show. We thank the ~benevolent~ HBO people for bestowing upon us this gem.
