Is McDonalds trying to scare away the customers, or just the other kind of customer?
I don't know but 520 calories and 34 grams of fat in one Big Mac is a bit crazed. It's a good thing I eat at Wendys. :D

To find out the nutrient content of the food McDonald's serves, you have to go to its Web site. Then you have to click "Search." Then you have to type in "fat content" and wade through a listing of titles until you find the "Nutrient Breakdown Card." Then you click on that and read text that doesn't tell you what you want to know. At the bottom of that text, you have to click to download a PDF file that actually contains the nutrition information. Then you have to open up the file in Adobe Acrobat, and since the type is too small to see on even a 19" monitor, you have to print it out--and then go find a magnifying glass so you can actually read it.
I dunno... I think McDonald's loves me so much that they don't want to worry me with stupid little facts like fat content or such. Just like how you don't tell your kids about the ebola virus until they're at the age where they won't run around all escared they're going to start throwing up their internal organs. It's exactly the same thing. So, WTG Mickey D's! Let us all celebrate with a big vat of oily processed meat. :thumbsup:
**edit: My obsessive compulsive nature got the best of me. Too many 'likes' too close to each other. It sounded... ghey. :p

It's no wonder they are urging the French not to eat there.....
GRENOBLE, France — A McDonald's restaurant under construction in eastern France was destroyed by a fire early Thursday, said police. No one was injured.
Investigators suspected foul play behind the fire, which started around midnight and rapidly consumed the single-story building in Voreppe, a suburb of Grenoble.
Construction of the restaurant was nearly completed, and it was due to open next month. The fire blew out windows, collapsed the building's roof and shattered much of its interior.
The fire, which investigators believe started in the kitchen, came amid a heated court battle launched by residents opposed to the McDonald's presence.
Residents said they objected to the odors and increased traffic expected from the restaurant's drive-in service. On Wednesday, they won a temporary court order suspending construction, pending a decision by a higher court.
Other McDonald's restaurants have been similarly unwelcome in France.
Anti-globalization activist Jose Bove rose to fame in 1999 when he and nine others used farm equipment to dismantle a McDonald's branch under construction in Millau, in the foothills of the Massif Central mountains.
Bove, who served a 61-day jail term for the action, opposes what he calls "foul food" — including genetically modified crops and McDonald's-style fast food that has become mainstream in France.

I kinda understand where they're coming from... But jeez.
French people are crazy. At least I know where my insanity comes from. :o
