1.8 million McDonalds meals a day, try google.


Try posting a link that says 650 million meals served in France each year, because it didn't exist in any of your previous 5 years out of date references...

Re: Britain's Most Boring Town

It's strange then that Mcdonalds do more business in France than any other EU country. Its not at all surprising , given that France is, and has been the No. 1 tourist destination for many years. If you look at locations of McD and concentrations you'll see theyre mostly situated round popular tour...

Re: Britain's Most Boring Town

The story I related was when they attempted to go mass market in France. Its well known what happened next. A gilet Jaune moment of you like. Macdonalds restaurant openings in France are still attended by protestors. They unlike the British still have a great respect for food and how its produced. I...

Re: Body Clock

Caffeine and alcohol before bed can affect different people different ways. I've a pal can down a strong coffee right before bed and he just passes out like normal. If have a coffee say after 6pm, I'm still buzzing at 1am. Doesn't work for me, neither does boozing late at night.

Re: Another iPhone question

In the settings menu- messages- has a blocked option. Though it goes to one's "contacts" list on opening it. Perhaps one needs to add the unwanted source to the contacts list? I'm not sure that that will block unwarranted texts. Maybe calls from that number, in France you can phone up you...

Re: Britain's Most Boring Town

In the mid 90's Mcdonalds in a flurry of press and TV adverts opened 25 outlets simultaneously in France, at doubtless a considerable investment. The next day the French government promptly shut them all down again, claiming that their promises to use only French meat /poultry, cheese and beer were ...

Re: Insulting advertising targeted at "Seniors"

Internet is better and worse. I use Ad Blockers because I do not want to pay for the adverts. However more and more sites block you if you use one. Fine, I can find another site easily enough that does also their use. Equally YouTube is more and more adverts. One I watched last week - over half was...

Re: Britain's Most Boring Town

We once ended up in Barrow-in-Furness by mistake, on a sojourn through the lake district. It was like we stepped back in time into a wild west northern England. Coming to the end of the pier road we spied a pub advertising pasties. It looked like the kind of place even Norman Bates would write off a...

Re: Charging Di2

I get about 1200 miles out of 6 year old Di2 batteries. When they were brand new I was averaging 1300-1350 miles on a single charge. For me that's a charge about every six weeks on my main electric shift bike in winter. These batteries have been through Canada winters that would scare the living bee...
