    Default Here's some weirdness

    According to Modern Marvels-Fast Food Tech:

    The amount of sesame seeds used on McDonald's buns equate to the weight of 2
    Boeing 747's per year.

    No wonder their buns are so heavy.

    Pretty vague factoid!

    So... McD's cuts back or increases sesame seeds to their buns during the
    course of the year, based on sales so they'll have used two 747's weight
    worth of sesame seeds per year?!?

    cybercat,

    Serious McD muchies too!

    I was creating my post when you made yours. Crazy, the stuff they try to
    slip past folks.

    Modern Factoid Marvels is more like it!

    Best,

    Why, what is amazing about a simple calculation? From all the flying I
    did I remember that the maximum takeoff weigh of a 747-400 (the latest
    version and what most people think of as a 747) is around 850,000
    pounds. I quick search tells me it is 875,000 pounds. Then all I would
    need to do is look at an annual report etc that will likely tell me the
    amount of seeds used or even weigh a sample and deduce the total from
    sales figures.

    Most of them end up it the bottom of the bags that the buns are
    shipped to the store in.

    Here's another fact: Smithfield pork farms produce enough pig ****
    in a year to fill two Yankee stadiums.
