    OT: Silly Science Survey: "I've seen..."

    Being a Science TV channel and science BUM!!!, I've amassed a short
    survey of things I've seen that they've documented.

    So... I've seen...

    1. A solar eclipse
    2. A lunar eclipse
    3. A meteor shower
    4. A meteorite
    5. Aurora Borealis
    6. A rocket launch
    7. A lava flow
    8. The world's best burger
    9. Bread, consistently falling buttered side down <G>

    To keep it positive, I left out natural and man-made disasters, not
    counting #9... #9... #9...

    I saw well-intentioned foam on a salad once. Should that count?
    Is it sort of a 7a.? It didn't last very long.

    OK Andy. Here's a response for you.

    > 8. The world's best burger


    Even though I make better burgers myself, and I've had better burgers from
    so many places, I would have to vote the McDonalds hamburger into the hall
    of burger fame.

    It's such a simple worthless piece of crap but it *does* have a unique
    taste.

    Probably mentioned this before but I remember as a kid in the early 60's, my
    local McDonalds restaurant advertised on their sign, "Over one million
    sold." They cost 15 cents back then and small fries were 12 cents. I ate
    there every chance I got. I loved that stuff.

    I also loved reading comic books back then too. They cost only 12 cents and
    I still have them all.....a few hundred of them. Might be able to get a
    decent price for them if I ever decide to sell.

    Anyway, back to the McD hamburgers.... I remember maybe 15 years ago or so,
    they put them on sale for only 25 cents each. And the sale lasted several
    months. boioinngg!

    Once that sale started, I bought a few and froze a few to see how they would
    do after being frozen. They did well. Freeze two in a baggie, then when
    you microwave them, add some mustard and a pickle slice or two. YUM!

    Once I knew they would freeze well, I went back and bought 40 of those
    suckers and froze them 2 at a time in baggies. Only cost me $10 plus
    tax....a little over $11. What a great deal for me. Microwaving 2 at a
    time was such a nice snack for whenever.

    I did this a few times until the sale ended.

    pavane,

    Feel free to add to the survey!

    I've seen that on TV a couple of times but never had foam salad dressing.
    Exotic stuff, from what I recall.

    Best,

    Andy

    You either misspelled ketchup or you are a heathen.

    Repeat after me: Mustard goes on Hot Dogs, Ketchup goes on Hamburgers
    (and fries).

    Gary,

    Back in the 1970s (?), McD held a 17 hamburger one day event. We pounced
    on that deal like lions on the hunt! ))

    That's not entirely right, IMO. For my burgers, I make a sauce of 80%
    ketchup and the rest mustard, worstshire, vinegar, molasses, and smoke
    flavor.

    "No misspelling, funny man," said the heathen. I liked adding the mustard
    better. I might have added a bit more ketchup but i forget now...the mustard
    was the main added event and the pickle slices.

    PS - I also add ketchup on hot dogs sometimes. If I make 3 dogs, the
    third will get a squirt of ketchup.

    My position on the marriage between mustard and ketchup has been evolving.

    An 80% ketchup content is acceptable. If your ketchup content falls
    below 65%, you have to go sit in the corner with the other blasphemers.

    If you must tinker with perfection, the preferred addition to ketchup is
    mayo.

    80% science ain't good enough, ya BUM!!!

    So you are a heathen 66.6% of the time. Strive for consistency!

    LOL! I actually am consistent, George.
    Whenever I do the 3 dogs (and it's fairly normal) with ketchup on the third
    one, that third one is always eaten last....like a dessert dog. It's
    true!

    They weren't much more than that regularly. I started driving in 74
    and I think they were $.19 at the time and they were pretty damn good.

    They really are tasty to me. Small, cheaply made, but I love that unique
    taste.
    I rarely goto McD these days, but it's always a treat for me when I do go.
    I don't normally get the plain hamburgers these days now...the normal price
    is too much.

    Who was it that had a 'change for your dollar' ad campaign. 1960s.
    Was it 2 burgers, fries and a coke and "change for your dollar".

    [might have been a double cheeseburger??]
