Science Finally Explains Why I Drink 6 Bloody Marys Every Time I Fly

The secret’s out.

You are scientifically proven to crave tomato juice when you’re cruising at 30,000 feet. Pressure, altitude, gravity, aperture, brain waves, fossil fuels… there is a whole mess of scientific mumbo jumbo (that I’m not going to get into) for why people tend to crave tomato juice on airplanes.

So the next time you feel guilty about downing 5 or 6 bloodies on your 7am (45 minute) flight to Nashville for that big business meeting that you completely fucked up, costing the company millions of dollars, don’t beat yourself up. It’s just science.

And, here I was the whole time thinking that I must’ve just been a raging alcoholic… phew.
