    Wow, that is sort of frightening. It looks like there is no place in the US they haven't set up shop selling cholesterol bursting burgers and fries.

    Pretty easy to locate major cities and freeways.

    I read an interesting article about income, obesity and fast food. It is counter intuitive to what most people (including me) believe.

    As income rises, so does fast-food consumption, study finds

    The conventional wisdom goes something like this: Obesity rates are skyrocketing among the poorest Americans, therefore fast-food restaurants must be to blame.

    But a new study by a professor at UC Davis' medical school has found that it's Americans with salaries at the higher end of the spectrum -- in some cases as high as $80,000 to $90,000 -- who are driving fast-food consumption at the likes of McDonald's and Burger King.

    "There's a strong correlation been income and obesity," professor Paul Leigh told The Times. "And so people say, 'Oh, well, it's the fast-food restaurants that are causing obesity among the poor.' But that's not true. To focus on fast-food restaurants as the sole cause of obesity is incorrect."

    When I was making that kind of money, I ate at all the fast food joints. I didn't have time for anything else. It makes sense, at least for single peeps.

    Global map would be cool, I bet the're still trying to figure out Antartica, for the next invasion, the're not far from the North Pole as I know in Canada and Scandanavia. They will probably shoot for the moon after the polar domination. Just think, getting greeted by the hamburgaler and Ronald upon landing.
