Q: McDonalds, what a joke...

Went there this afternoon.  Meal I purchased was advertised looking decent; reality was like some sort of Orwellian 'eat to live' nightmare. Ol' Ray would be turning in his grave.   I wonder why they don't just say- hey, this is the processed slop you pay 21rmb for. It will provide X.   But to show those pretty pictures on the menu and then hand out that cr*p?  haha,,,  It was all I could do to keep myself from walking up to the counter and asking the manager if there had been some mistake. The chicken 'patty',,, what's a patty?  Is that like an Irishman? The chicken patty was the closest thing I've ever experienced sold as food that wasn't actually food.  Some cross between cardboard, plastic, and seasonings.  In some ways pretty ingenious though...

 

So, what do you think? Should the homosapien continue down the road of subsistence? or stand up for something better?

The only time I go to Maccas is when I'm in a strange town and can't find anywhere else to get breakfast. McD's are shit but they do put on a decent coffee which is my only real breakfast requirement.

 

Oh, and if I'm looking for a bathroom, McD's are usually the best option in a Chinese city.

I stopped eating chicken in China when i found out the diet is almost all SOY, soy increases estrogen in males, might explain the lack of masculinity in China, but I just got rid of the man boobs with fasting and don't want them back.

I was in McD three times in my entire life.

 

At that time (around 2003), I considered myself as a 'pioneer ...'.

Joint in Pompano Beach, Fla,  had hookup  with free wi-fi.

I go to Mickey D's three or four times a week for dinner. I usually get the Big Mac unless it's Friday and then I get the Fish Fillet. Several years ago they had a Chinese steamed bun burger. When I first saw it I was like WTF? But being the adventurous soul that I am, I tried it and was immediately addicted. They only had it for a limited time. I hope they bring it back soon.

Why do I hear people say that Mcdonald's has sit-down toilets? All the ones I've seen are squat toilets or don't have toilets because customers must use the mall toilets.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
