Does this have to do with Taco Bell?

There's a reason you don't see too many Taco Bells at airports.

But many airports do sell pizza, and that can be...just as 'deadly'...

That is impressive.

According to the WHO, at typical cruising altitudes of 36, 000 –40,000 feet above sea level, air pressure in the cabin is equivalent to about 6,000 – 8,000 feet. There is no US airport that high, so the internal pressure of the passengers has to equalize with the cabin pressure. You have to either burp, fart, or both; or pretend you're holding it in as an excuse for expanding into the next seat.

Edgar?

I get high with a little help from my friends ♫
Ooo, in the sky I will fart from both ends
Yes, I'm not shy; don't make me have the bends ♫
