    You know that McDonald’s is kind of evil, because there are more column inches and pseudo-scientific documentaries dedicated to that fact than there are as to whether or not jet fuel can burn hot enough to melt steel. But we felt that there was just a little more life left in this idea thanks to some lesser known facts about America’s “favorite” burger company.

        I just watched a movie about the 1984 McDonald's massacre.
        The movie is called "77 minutes".
        One of the saddest parts of the film is when one of the kitchen staff was recalling how a group of them could not get out the emergency exit as it was locked.
        When asked why it was locked she replied
        "They (Managers) thought we would steal food".
        I hope they were fired and publicly lynched.
        The kitchen staff would have had a better chance of escape. HORRID.

            Their hamburgers don’t go bad due to the thickness (or lack thereof). The burgers dry out before they can spoil.

                All burgers are the same as McDonalds and do not go bad after cooking. Point #9 discredited this entire video as simple outrage farming.

                                      By their own words, McD says what they sell is "manufactured food." The only part of that statement under dispute is "food." The rest i agree with since by their own words their test kitchen isnt a kitchen at all, its a laboratory. You know, that laboratory where the Frankenstein monster was made, complete with heated beakers containing multi-colored liquids and steam-fog coming out of the tops. Yes, that one.

                                                      McDonald's buns are made of white bread and are tasteless, and the meat is practically tasteless too,so I don't understand the appeal. I eat the breakfast sandwiches though, you can't screw up an egg ,cheese, and sausage on buiscit.

Fighting against the man is difficult, because the man owns the world, and they have unlimited resources to squander on stomping the little guy. The little guy who stands up to them in spite of that has balls of steel, and thus deserves respect, while corporate fascists deserve nothing but contempt.
