    • Gordon Ramsay Reveals the 1 Place You Should Never Eat

      Sure, Gordon Ramsay has high standards, but is there really anything he would never eat? Turns out it's more of a place where he would never eat rather than one specific food — and that's on a plane. In an interview with Refinery29, Gordon revealed his feelings about airplane food and why those feelings might be justified. "There's no f*cking way I eat on planes," he said. "I worked for airlines for 10 years, so I know where this food's been and where it goes, and how long it took before it got on board." Yikes. The man has a point — there's no denying that airplane food is not the best. So what's a traveler to do to avoid midflight hunger, according to the world-renowned chef? If you're like

      If President Trump really intends to build his border wall, spend tens of billions more on the military, slash social safety net spending, and enact any number of his other campaign promises in his first term, he had better hurry up. If history is any guide, the Republicans will lose seats in the House in the 2018 mid-term election. Some have even begun to speculate that with Trump’s approval ratings well under water already, the Democrats have a credible shot at taking control of the lower chamber, if not the Senate.
