Terrible news for anyone who has ever been bored on an airplane: the company behind SkyMall, that in-flight catalog you disdainfully flip through after you’ve suffered through all the available episodes of The Big Bang Theory, has announced its inevitable bankruptcy filing.

Well, what are you waiting for? Get on the SkyMall website and order all this stuff before it’s too late. Oh, and one more thing: the next time you’re flying somewhere, don’t forget to bring a book.
