As if one of those Burger King patties wasn't bad enough, why would anyone want 7 of them???
Besides, do they think people can unhinge their jaws like sharks?

The possibilities are endless when you live in a country without anti-fat fascists.

My point exactly. Actually, Austin is a bit of a paradox in that respect. There, the steak-houses have bike-racks so that the diners can resume their normal health-conscious activities after the fact.

Even we Texans avoid a 7-patty monstrosity like the plague. That thing is the epitomy of heart attack.I'm assuming then that you've never been to Texas?
Haha yeah Austin is funny. Probably the most "green" focused city I have ever lived in...and I could honestly care less about "green". Do you live in Austin, too, Sebastiani?Actually, Austin is a bit of a paradox in that respect.

Austin is a pretty cool city, though. Besides being an overall hip place, there's always fun stuff to do and plenty of natural beauty (and more importantly, great food!). It's definitely a quirky place, though. My first day in town I got stuck on a one-lane road behind this guy riding what appeared to be an oversized tricycle, with a sign on the back reading "Stop The War!!!" or such. I just kept honking my horn, all the while thinking "WTF?! This guy's got a lot of nerve riding on the roadway!", and in response he would just calmly reach up and squeeze a little bulb-type "clown" horn. The exchange was actually quite comical, really. Anyway, later, of course, I learned that bikes (and trikes, I guess) are allowed in the rightmost lane of most roads! Funny thing is, after that I wound up behind that guy numerous times. Except, by then I had grown so accustomed to bikes on the road that it was just like "Oh hey, there's that crazy war-protesting tricyclist!". The oddity kind of grows on you, after a while.
If you thought it ended there, they're even catering to really desperate anime freaks.
