    I think that if you make a long, thin trench somewhere, like 0.1m*100m*1000km, and fill it up with iron (costs about 5 bn) you can likely chop of a piece of an existing plate if you wait for some years.

    Starbucks is in Washington state, northwest corner of the map. The other three are in New England

    Interesting. My awareness of those brands radically increased as I moved across the map towards New England. I wonder why that is.

    Then you'll have to put up with people misspelling your name and utterly failing to cut-and-paste it properly too. :D

    There is at least one Starbucks here, yes (didn't notice that on the map ;) ). I haven't seen any of the other three. Maybe they exist, not sure.

    I knew a guy who went into a KFC once. That's as close as I've been to fast-food joints.

    Oh, and I walked past a Starbucks last year.

    *sigh*

    Sometimes I feel like life's passing me by.

    Taco John's .. If someone invited me for lunch at such a place, I'd expect a run down business operated by someone who knows nothing about tacos.

    Taco John's is good, dude.

    When was the last time anyone even *saw* a Godfather's Pizza? I don't think I've been to one in 15+ years.

    Also, does anyone remember Rax?

    I think they have more than a dozen Five Guys in the UK now. I saw one in London in 2013 and was stunned because their expansion was so rapid I hadn't even realized they existed outside the mid-atlantic.

    Herman Caine's the only reason I've ever even thought about them.

    I will remember that, but it's just that.. well, look at the name. I wouldn't go to "Bob's Sushi" or "Randy's Cambodian Cuisine", I'd prefer something that sounds more authentic. Knowing nothing about Taco John's, if I ever saw it by the side of the street, I'd assume it's not really very authentic and I would walk by and go somewhere else. If "Juan's Tacos" was next door, I would definitely go there instead, even if it looked more run down.. Maybe *especially* if it looked a bit run down - from my experience the best taco places don't look like much from the outside.

    Having looked up Taco John's though, it seems to be a Taco Bell competitor or something similar. And Taco Bell isn't very good and gives me gas, aside from their fries supreme, which I love to this day - but which you can't even get in the U.S. for some stupid reason (as far as I know). These are the thoughts which would be running through my mind if I ever happened to walk by a Taco John's. But with your recommendation in mind, I would give them a try. I just think their branding is crap, for someone like me, who has never heard of them until now. "Taco John's" doesn't sound very appetizing at first glance.
