I felt like going shopping so I went around and dragged my brother's girlfriend along with me.<br><br>
It ended up I didn't buy anything (I wanted to get some parts for the car but wasn't sure about model numbers etc. when I got there)...... but my brother's GF bought quite a bit (including U2's <i>Rattle and Hum</i> on DVD for my birthday; it has 11 more songs than the CD, two of which I have been eager to listen to).<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, after we left the shopping centre she wanted to get her dinner at McDonalds. So I drove into the car park and said "I'm coming in too".<br><br>
"No way! Stay here!" she replies.<br><br>
"You can't make me."<br><br>
"Please, do NOT say anything," she asked. I promised.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, I was behaved. Although the place stank worse than I ever recall it stinking like. But they actually sell overseas calling cards, one of which has rates of 2 cents per minute to major countries (USA, UK, Canada).<br><br>
I also grabbed some of their "fact" sheets; <i>Caring for the Environment</i>, <i>The Facts about our Food</i>, and <i>Healthy Balance</i>. Interesting.

I agree on the smell with you Kurmudgeon.. I recently went to Burger King to get my boyfriend's little sister and her friend kid's meals and I seriously gagged as they ordered.<br><br><br><br>
Although I do go through the drive through for McDonald's fruity parfait thingy once in awhile..I will not go in those places at all anymore. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:">

Oh yeah and let me know about that "Facts about our Food" brochure.. I would like to know what kinds of lies they're spreading in there.

I think I *might* be able to deal with the smell at McDonald's, since, if memory serves me correctly, it smells more like their fries than their gagburgers. The restaurant I know for a fact I couldn't go into without retching is Burger King. Ugh. I just drive by that place and I can smell those putrid things cooking. Blech.<br><br><br><br>
Heck, I even felt sick yesterday when my mother was warming up a Morningstar chik'n pattie! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">

I just moved in with an omnivore this past month and smelled eggs cooking for the first time in probably 2 years! Wow! I don't remember the smell of scrambled eggs being so obnoxious before! The entire house smelled like cooked eggs, and the smell didn't go away for a couple hours!<br><br><br><br>
I'd love to here some of their environmental facts - Are you going to share with us anything good?<br><br><br><br>
I'm curious to find out if they are actually trying to do anything positive about the environment! What they really need to do is give us a McDonald's Human Rights fact sheet. Now that'd be interesting.<br><br><br><br>
Speaking of fast food companies not telling the truth, I read that PeTA is sueing KFC because their website <a href="http://www.kfc.com" target="_blank">www.kfc.com</a> is misleading about the animal welfare their food receives before it's killed - I dug up the webpages in question - <a href="http://www.kfc.com/about/animalwelfare_principles.htm" target="_blank">http://www.kfc.com/about/animalwelfare_principles.htm</a>

It's great. I think it's just like the VHS version except better sound and video, of course.<br><br><br><br>
The movie version of Rattle and Hum also has 11 songs not on the CD:<br><br>
Exit<br><br>
Gloria<br><br>
In God's Country<br><br>
Bad<br><br>
Ruby Tuesday<br><br>
Sympathy for the Devil<br><br>
Where the streets have no name<br><br>
MLK<br><br>
With or without you<br><br>
Running to stand still<br><br>
Sunday bloody Sunday<br><br><br><br>
It also has snippets of interviews.<br><br><br><br>
I'd only ever seen it for $40 but found it for $20 (so then I didn't feel so bad about my brother and his girlfriend getting me a birthday present).
