    Inside the contiguous United States, you cannot be further than 115 miles from the nearest McDonalds restaurant. In fact, the only place in America where you can be as far away as possible is in the Nevada desert . . . which is kind of removed from all facets of civilization. Here's a (heavily-watermarked) map of the restaurant chain's US locations:

    There are 2 (yes, 2) within 3 miles from my house. One on the West side of the burg (about 1.8 miles away) and one East-side in "Burger Row" - 2.5 miles. Count me as "blessed".

    BTW - we never get anything from them. Nor Burger King. Wndys once in a great while (Frosties!)

  5. To be fair, I live in Napa and New York City is within driving distance. Hell, in 2003 I drove to Alaska and back.

    What's your point?

    Yikes!

    We should cut out the middle men and just get our government services and healthcare from McDonalds and Starbucks.

    I'll have a venti coffee, a mcyumyum and i'd like to register my car.
