glad my offical currency is silver, just like the rest of the world I rejected FRN
Seven 90% Silver dimes will buy that Big Mac with a few copper pennies back.
" It wasn't too long ago that it would take 1.20 francs to buy a US dollar. Now it takes $1.40 to buy a single franc."
An ounce of silver will buy you 25 francs or so. How many could it buy in 2008? Something tells me you are on the money Long John.
Today's 90% Silver dime melt value in US Dollars is $2.71.
a very interesting point I had read:
one 90% us quarter value right now is $6.90, 8 quarters fill up the gas tank today ($55.20) just like it would back in the 60's (8 quarters)
Just think how many Big Macs an ounce of gold can buy, bitchez. You can fill your tank, eat your McDonald's, have a night with a hooker, get your car detailed, have a day at an amusement park, spend another night with a hooker, buy a good bottle of Scotch and still have enough money for some Taco Bell.
LOL and that is in the Western world, imagine what it would get you in China, Thailand, Vietnam etc...
It would probably get you arrested.
Man, one of my fav meals used to be a Big Mac, a Quarter Pounder, Fries, and a Coke. I'm older now and really try to take care of my health, it would probably make me sick.
Own your vices, or they own you.
We'll soon be buying 'Small Mac's'...
Isn't that what White Castle serves?
Anyway, I don't consume junk food. Shit's bad for you, for realz. You get off of that crap and after a long enough time, it'll make you sick if you ever [on a rare occasion] try to eat that stuff.
Three months. Three months and I can't even step inside a McDonald's anymore. The smell alone is nauseating.
This article is ridiculous.
Thanks for the link, Now I know that the author is stupid enough to pay $17 for a Big Mac instead of the $8 he should have paid. Wonder if I can sell him this big bridge in Brooklyn that I own??
@WestVillageI - Why would you want to do any of those things? Sounds like a day in hell.
This is misleading. The price of a Big Mac in CHF is 6.50, so at current exchange rates, thats USD 8.95. See below:
Fine, the point is well taken that the USD is rubbish, but getting facts straight would improve credibility.
The sad thing about Switzerland is that even with a favorable exchange rate, their crap is still expensive-even to the rest of the Europeans. Many Swiss go across the border to do their daily shopping. But I still think it would be a great place to live some day.
CHF 12.70 is the happy meal.
If you go read the actual post on Sovereign Man he says Big Mac Meal, not just the sandwhich itself.
I can see McDonald's employees working for food instead of US Dollars.
Well can we really say that McDonalds is food? McDonalds...you can eat it?
Was going to say the same thing...
wht would you do if you were working there? accept the toilet paper dollars? the dod shit food? or would you just be better growing a few carrots and living off berries, nuts and road kill??
This is the trickle down economics turning into full blown golden shower economics.
Make mine a royal with cheese, bitches!
I love ZH and I know we are all cynical here but damn if I still don't love eating a Big Mac on occasion. I even like the McRib. i know, I know but we all have our vices. At least I'm only hurting myself. Oh yeah, and the shamrock shakes always make me think of the good times in my childhood. I'm guilty.
If you eat two or so every month I don't think you're hurting yourself.
The cosmic rays bouncing off your mitochondiral dna probably are more of a risk than a few big macs every year. Hell just driving to work is probably a lot riskier.
I wonder, can the same be said of this:
I'll need to Super Size the fries...
I don't eat there every day, or even once a week. But doggoneit, i still love a quarter pounder with cheese, or a Bigmac, and the fries are absolutely the best there are, bar none. And why does the Coca-Cola from Mickie D's always taste better than what comes out of the bottle? They get some proprietary mix or something?
I usually eat home-cooked, but now and then Mickie D's hits the spot. Just gald I don't have to work there!
agreed...spliff followed by dble qpwc and nugs...mmmmm...
Yes they have a propietary formula for Coca-Cola on Mickey-D's.
If you want to have your bottled Coke taste just like it does on Mickey D's, ask someone to pee in your bottle.
And don't forget to have someone spit on your home made burgers so they are as tasty as the original Mickey D's.
You know the syrup and the carbonated water come in pressurized containers that are hooked to the dispenser? I'd sure like to see how someone can SPIKE a pressurized container!
I'm sure the spit thing happens now and then. But I do not for a second believe it is a regular occurence. I would hope mamagement would be quick to fire anyone even suspected of doing such nonsense.
Otherwise, the thought of someone spitting on my burger does not scare me in the least. If I knew it was there, maybe. But since no one would ever no its there, who gives a fuck? Not me. Also I suspect that if something had a "little wang in it" (compliments of the Hollywood Knights), it would be noticable. So I'll not be dissuaded by that line either.
You don't want to eat McDonalds, fine by me. I like them every so often. As I said, its not a regular habit, just now and then, maybe once a month. It aint gonna kill me. I exercise every day, am 6'2" and 175 pounds, have perfect blood pressure and pulse at 50 years old. How fit are you?????
That's how I feel. As long as they make Filet O Fish's, I'll be by every week, or so.
It used to be S.O.P. to eat 3 of those on every Friday in Lent when they were running their specials. Don't skimp on the tartar sauce, fuckers.
My wife is Catholic. We change up between catfish, talapia, and fish filets.
She's old school.
let the fools have their tar-tar sauce.
Same, same. Around every month or so. What pisses me off is self important nannys saying what I can or cannot eat.
Or that I shouldn't eat X because of their health insurance premium...bogus fucktards, they could care less who lives or dies as long as they don't have to pay more. They should confine themselves to eating grass & tofu and not have health insurance payments at all...lol.
I've come to the conclusion there is an element in society with no life of their own and their only real desire is to insert themselves into mine.
That's how I judge the quality of life in America.
Everyone seems to have so few problems and so much free time, they just need to worry about how everyone else leads their life.
Back in 76, my parents moved from N.J. to CA. One of the reasons they told me was they were sick of the "Nibby-noses" that lived in this state. When we first got to CA., it appeared they were correct, no one gave a dams about us or what we did.
Now, like political correctness, its everywhere, there is no escape.
They erred in moving to a coast. Commie libs congregate near beaches for some reason.
YUP. Stayed in CA for 26 years. I married an Oklahoma girl in 94 and we moved to Midwest City, OK in 2002. First thing I did was get a Concealed Weapon Permit. ;-)
Good plan. I escaped Kalifornia for Texas in late 2000.
are they difficult to obtain outside the south? or was it just the county you lived in? i'm a liberal and all, but this is a wild-wild world; and there are just certain circumstances where piece is vital...so long as there are such things as pieces about. and, most of all, there are few more satisfying sensations than squeezing a few off. i like to tick off glass bottles in the back acres -- the exploding shards make for a nice punctuation to the pop.
38 S&W snub...wadcutters, bitchez!
i shot a man in reno/
just to watch him die/
and when i hear that lonesome whistle/
i hang my head and cry,
McDonald's was better for you before the nannies started interfering. They pushed to get rid of the beef-tallow french fries and replaced them with rancid vegetable oil.
Southern fried chicken sandwich is a late-night winner, & Angus mushroom-swiss burger.
Fries are as good as fast food gets.
Haven't been in a few months, but the night is young.
when will in and out burger ever come down south?
another reason to leave.
An iPad might be more nutritious...
And hurt less when it comes out of your anus. Oh, wait, I was thinking about White Castle.
Big Macs could explain Barney Frank's actions on Rachel Maddow...
He had to shift around to keep his ben wa balls from popping out.
