The man who was fully responsible for exporting McDonald's restaurants abroad was Raymond A. Kroc, born in Chicago to Czech parents (his grandparents were from Stupno near Plzeň).

True, but no one makes me eat in McDonald's, neither in the US nor when I travel across Europe.
I always go past the golden arches and find a better place to eat, simple! Smile

Although I rarely eat at McDonald's (maybe once a year or so), I usually always stop in McDonald's in other countries - I like to see the regional differences in the menu and they usually have clean restrooms. BTW Czech McDonald's have much better Big Macs than here Smile

From a purely anecdotal point of view (my own observations while travelling to Europe and then returning to the US): I can say that I have seen very few fat people - and no obese people - in Europe, but as soon as I return to the US, I see too many super-sized bodies.
I wish it were not so.
This is true. Besides I need to drop about 30 pounds myself. Embarassed
