So I read there was some new law on California where McDonalds can't sell toys with happy meals that are "too unhealthy", I think this is bad, the state shouldn't decide to regulate unhealthy food. Likewise, here in Illinois, schools can't sell soft drinks from the cafeteria, even high schools. What do you guys think.

I think it's no mystery how terrible the food from McDonald's is, and I think San Francisco banning sale of it to certain people is like banning poisoncakes from being sold

This law is retarded.

If the parents want to feed their children a heart attack in a box, then let them, they're too stupid to get proper food anyways.
Then again fast food is cheap, and mostly poor people buy it, which makes a cycle, of being unhealthy and poor. No


Though the teacher said mcdonalds in japan is very clean and neat, because everyone tries to hard in their job with a smile, no matter how bad it might be. That would be nice to have. Sleep

Food in the US compared to the UK is cheap as chips (literally), so how people can't afford to eat properly I do not know.

Does it not also annoy you that age restrictions for things seem to vary from state to state?
It means you can get caught out for law infringement very easily I would imagine, meaning you would need to know the rulebook from front to back if you intended on say...visiting relatives who live in a different state (generic example).

To me, it is more awkward than annoying. Like how in Kentucky, if you are a girl under 18, you can get married to whom ever you wish, if you are pregnant. It doesn't even have to be the father of that child. That just seems weird.

But that is why I just don't pay attention to the exact age restriction, I'll wait til 21 then you are okay to do pretty much anything (anything legal that is) Razz

dont typical grocery shopping costs around more than a hundred $$ to make a meal for the family???

those people who work in poor conditions tend to be immigrants, hoping for a better life, moving with their whole family. people get paid like 5$ an hour, working for 8, thats 45$$ a day No and they have to take care of the house, everything, oh its so tragic. Sad


i'm so inaccurate, but you know, drunken

>$100 for one meal makes NO sense, unless it is a 100% caviare diet for people like yourself.

I think he's saying that it costs $100 on average to shop for groceries. Which is wrong, since that only happens if you buy extra stuff you dont even need.

Well it depends on the family size too, if it is just 1 person it sounds unreasonable to buy $100 worth of groceries.
