And they deliver - on motorcycles - even in the snow.

I disagree with subbys idea of cool.
Those buildings look hideous.

I always laugh at the dualism in sports. Here are tremendous athletes being funded by an industry that if you eat the food, you will be a gross pig.

That's actually not really true:  If typical McDonald's customers trained like Olympic athletes, they'd almost certainly maintain a trim figure, maybe even lose some weight.

Was going to post a picture of that last one, as an example of same concept as the S.K. McD's but much more poorly done. It's not far from where I grew up, off Montfort and 635 in Dallas, same lot as Target. A teacher of mine once referred to it as "the world's ugliest McDonald's" (and I concur with that statement). Always thought it just looked weird as a building, and didn't really pull off the "it's shaped like their happy meals!" idea in a way that was fun, aesthetically pleasing or cool.

Also familiar with the first pic, it's the one that was parked in front of the St. Louis arch, and it was indeed cool.

I bet you think you run into assholes all day long. You should look into what they say about that.

Yeah, depending on the type of athlete it might be pretty close to what they eat as part of their training regimen.  You can burn off a lot of calories when your job is to be an athlete.

Well, they generally aren't shy about it, which is how I know they are assholes.

It's proof of the Greater Internet Farkwad Theory.

Quite frankly, I don't care what some random dickheads think about me personally.  They've shown themselves to be irrational in their hatred.  See this thread for a perfect example of that: https://m.fark.com/comments/990​3202 .  I posted a link to a well-done Mother Jones article about how early lead exposure can lead to higher levels of criminal activity in those exposed, and dickheads couldn't wait to personally attack me over it, without even checking the source of the information first.

I mean, I know I have a (false) reputation for being conservative or a Republican, but for nonexistent deity's sake, it was a Mother Jones article.  They lean so far left that they were the only ones to hint at the Piss Dossier prior to the election, when no other media outlet would touch it with a 10 foot pole.

But I don't care about their bias, per se, so much as I do what each individual piece they publish says.  If it's well researched, like the article I linked to in that thread, then I don't care where it was published, or who linked to it.  And neither should anyone else.

Just dismissing something out of hand without considering its merist simply because you don't like the source of the information is anti-intellectual.  It's the online equivalent of plugging your ears and yelling "LALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU!", and as such should be roundly condemned by anyone with even a shred of intellectual honesty.

Now, back to this case: What I said was absolutely true, in that if you're burning 6000 calories a day or more exercising it doesn't matter what you eat, you're going to stay fit (assuming you don't get something like scurvy or pellagra or pernicious  anemia or other diseases caused by a lack of  vital nutrients).

But despite the truth of that statement, people still got to be assholes.

That's OK, I don't post for them.  And I'll always see their comments because I refuse to put anyone on ignore.  It's antithetical to the entire philosophy I've laid out here.  Even the worst source can have something important or worthwhile to say, and I'd hate to miss it just because I took personal offense at something else they said.  I guess I'm just funny that way.

Holy shiat, did you think people didn't know that? God damn, you really don't have a lot of faith in this community you regularly shiat up. No farking kidding if you train like an Olympic athlete you're going to burn an insane amount of calories, and you'd theoretically be able to eat whatever, calorie-wise. The point was that the average McDonald's consumer we all picture when we talk in these kinds of threads is about as likely to train at the Olympic level as alligators are to grow wings and fly to the moon.

But please cry more about being treated poorly around here due to your well-earned reputation while still never leaving for some reason. It's a weird kind of funny watching you crawl up onto a cross over a discussion about McDonald's.

What's with making winter olympics in spots without snow in february? 

But back on topic: i really thought that McDonald's was supposed to stop having such a huge presence in the olympics...
