    I have to ask, when you say decent what do you mean? For example, if you try just the burger, does it actually taste like meat? Nowhere I have had one does it taste of anything but cardboard.

    Only evacuating wounded apparently. Russian MoD says they reached agreement, but no further details provided.

    I can confirm that in Russia it tastes like meat and much better than in America. Didn't try it in Western Europe though.

    In New Zealand the quality of ingredients is better and it's not really cheap. No $1 chicken burgers.

    I've seen the meat patties being made they use large slabs of beef and add salt and herbs/seasoning.



    They're not great as such but I like the 1/4 pounder and Angus beef ones.

    The Russian McTasty I think is very similar to our old megafeast burger. Basically 1/4 pounder with lettuce, tomatoes, mayo.

    Kiwiburger in video had beetroot and egg in it.

    And I used to work there no horror stories unlike KFC and Burger King.

    McDonald's isn't great but there's plenty of worse ones. And they have cafe options here so instead of coke you can get a flat white or whatever.

    I've heard good things about Russian Maccas. They source the ingredients locally and adapt to local taste.

    Beef is usually moist and juicy. Fries are fairly consistent and better than most places. We rarely eat McDonald's when we're after something plainer.

    My go to burger is basically a cheeseburger, homemade sauce, brioche bun with caramelized onions at a local bar.

    Public opinion in Germany apparently also includes spray-painting "Z" on the walls of the buildings hosting the ukrainian refugees there. Although that can always be more of a german thing :)

    People gonna be stupid in these types of things.

    I think here one shop got spray painted on the window that sold Russian product.

    Ze Germans in WW1 got bricks through the windows. Progress.

    For that kind of actions of "the public opinion" 0.000002% of the German population suffices.

    That is then assuming that it was someone of the "German" population.

    Do hope you recover from long Covid soon.

    Trying to work out who the UK should invade to free ourselves of McLibel.

    Could have told you that and saved you from that trash.
    I use to love eating at Maccas when I was a kid though.

    ρ16 is probably (as he calls it) an "oligark". Maybe not when he compares himself to larger oligarks :o
    I, sadly, have daily expenses to worry about, despite being born into 'oligarky'.
    This war, for me, has very real implications, including very crucial loss of income as well as loss of prospective income. Sadly I was unlucky enough to see a deal cancelled literally days before it would be accepted, entirely due to the war (the business no longer could aspire to pay the cost).

    I know, not noble. Sometimes one has to look into his own survival.

    tens of thousands of dead people , so it would be equally pointless to create an impression of some pyramid with Moscow at the top . Which is the exact thing America wants destroyed , like just for business . And Ukranians , slaves no more after 450 years . You will just cause another 10 000 Russian deaths .

    as for the oligark business , no , am not in Wall Street top 100 or whatever .

    Sorry about that :undecide:
    Strangely enough it almost didn't affect me in material sense so far. If I wasn't reading the news the only thing I would notice is closing McDuck and few other stores which I don't use.
    The prices went up a little, but the same happened last year.

    Something with the British recipe for McDonald's is... wrong. They're leaving something out that I expect. Cardboard is about right. That said, I wouldn't go to McDonald's in the states for a burger. A salad or a coffee, sure. Maybe a shamrock shake, seasonally.

    Saw it on twitter (video, apparently by a german tv channel). German posters may be helpful in locating it.

    It was a storm... :mischief:

    The pile of tanks at the bank looks like they tried to retire in panic after crossing the river. I think they didnt like the Ukranian welcome but the pontoons were not there anymore.
