Response to HuckleB (Reply #37)

46. I selected the video to make a point about the french fries...

All of the McD's sandwiches showed signs of decomposition. Even the Big Mac began to rot to some degree after several weeks.

However, the fries appeared to resist rotting for up to ten weeks! What's in them?

Since the OP reported on a new GMO in the potatoes that were going to be used by McD's, I wondered just how many unnatural ingredients the new fries will contain.

And I, too, haven't eaten at McD's since the early 1970s! But my "boycott" was due originally to McD's approach to advertising and Ray Kroc's purchase of the San Diego Padres baseball team (1974). I was living in San Diego at this time when this happened--

On April 9, 1974, while the Padres were on the brink of losing a 9-5 decision to the Houston Astros in the season opener at San Diego Stadium, Kroc took the public address microphone in front of 39,083 fans. "I’ve never seen such stupid ballplaying in my life," he said.

He proved that class doesn't come from a wallet.
