A Big Mac has a "shelf life" of about 15 min in a regular MacDonalds store.


15 minutes of it's real 150 year shelf life!

I can't believe people would wait in that line, wasting precious time, all to shove garbage in their face. Well yea I kinda can...

Yeah, screw that. If I'm having fast food, I'm still going to a register with a human at it. And if they don't have that, I'm walking back out the door.

As an aside, this is a GREAT way to kill off chains and help out mom & pop diners. Hell, a few days ago, the husband and I had a nice sit-down breakfast at one instead of at BK. Sure, breakfast cost twice as much, but it came with the added benefit of our favorite goofy waitress whom we enjoy tipping 25%. Service with a good personality, it's worth it.

"Everyone will be screaming about robots and automation taking away jobs, but Food Safety is the real issue. You can't roll back time, which is why "some" automation will creep in, but only to a degree. You will ALWAYS need a live person in food prep."

Um no it is coming. In another timeline people were blowing up tech companies and destroying anything related to computers and they were called terrorist. They did not succeed. It was bloody and terrible and the human race did become extinct. In this timeline we "scream" as you say, about it. We inform and project love. The goal is to get through to all those involved in tech with tapping into their free will, compassion and reason while they still are capable of it, to turn this around and save lives.

The food you speak of will be GMO to give any perishable food clearance for a longer shelf life in the kiosk machine. Similar to the GMO Arctic Apple that just came out which doesn't brown after it's cut; staying white.

McNasty's food doesn't have a "shelf life"....it has a "half-life"!

“The burgers are cooked on-site at [a nearby] McDonald’s and then immediately loaded into the heated machine, which is refilled on an ongoing basis to ensure fresh quality,” local owner-operator Vincent Spadea explains."

Long time ago someone that worked there told me that the burgers arrive frozen, pre cooked and are just heated up, condiments and cheese added, then wrapped. Nothing fresh about that.

Or tasty... last burger I bought from Mickey d's I took one bite and threw the rest out the window in disgust. The seagulls descended and ate the meat , leaving the rest on the ground.

Sad day if people can't tell the difference between that crap and home cooked.

People have always complained about having to work at McDonald's.

They won't have to worry about it anymore. It won't be an option.

...and then flew off to the dump and died.

I can't even remember the last time I got actual hot food at McNasty's. They're the all-time World Champions of not even luke warm everything!

I'm not surprised at all.

I mean, if you think about it...what's so difficult for a machine?

Grab a bun, squirt some Pink Slime on it from the vat, squirt some cheez on it, stick another bun on there, squirt some more Pink Slime on it, squirt some more cheez on it, weed whack some GMO lettuce on there, squirt some "special sauce" on it, shoot a couple GMO pickles on there from the pickle shooter and fling another bun on it. Take the whole thing and stick it in a used 'recycled' toilet paper box...and voila'!

So easy...even a Somali refugee could do it.

Funny stuff!


Here is where I have to interject some reality. ALL fast food headsets SUCK. We can't understand a #ting thing you say in the drive thru. You could be David Attenborough and we'd still be standing there guessing "what did he say???".

This is where the meal number menu came in handy.
Sort of kinda....maybe. It only works if y'all don't be adding stuff and asking questions like "does your diet coke have aspartame??" By then we just slapped a couple of chocolate pies in your bag cause WE GIVE UP!!!

Did my stint at a Burger King and even the district manager couldn't get me near the drive thru. That level of frustration for minimum wage? Um....no. Our drive thru people were saints. Drunks, idiots, people tossing drinks back at them thru the window, cars of screaming Mom's with kids so you can't hear anything other than what sounds like a murder in progress?

The best night was when the manager took me off cooking, put me on register. The Janitor on cooking. The drive-thru chick on fryers and the fryer guy on drive thru.
THE MAYHEM!

I couldn't understand anything one poor Pakastani guy wanted so I swung the register around and told him to "pick what you want" with apologies. The fryer guy kept telling people to just drive up to the window to order, and apologizing. The drive thru chick kept screaming "is this done??!!!!" and yelling at us for where we keep different products. Plus the occasional screaming cause of grease burns.....

Lets not go into the janitor cooking food....the kid was a unsanitary slob.
So I was running back & forth cooking burgers/chicken and assembling sandwiches so no one got sick.

WORST SHIFT EVER.

I have to say every customer that night was confused altho understanding and many...many calls were made to corporate on our behalf. No customer even attempted to open the register as they were ringing their own orders.
People really are decent in an emergency.

Or they could using tech which actually makes the food



It's pretty clever really, motion capture to mimic a real chef and then every meal should be exactly the same done to precision (providing the programming doesn't go wrong)

In the case of McD's just motion capture the burger flipper for each type of burger and you're good to go, no need to store pre made meals as they can be done on the fly

I just feel sorry for all the future burger flipping snowflakes who are currently studying "safe space" degrees at uni because soon they'll have no potential jobs to go to as they'll all be outsourced by robots

To be clear, cause I sort of wasn't. By saying you can't roll back time I mean, once all the ingredients are assembled into a sandwich the clock on bacterial growth starts.


No, the clock on pathogen growth is going at any time food is between 41 and 135 degrees assuming the food is capable of supporting pathogen growth. It's even going a bit in the safe temperature zones. Assembly of the burger doesn't matter for pathogen growth.

Also, the statement that they had 15 minutes to meet food safety is false. McDonald's has always assembled burgers to order. Health codes vary but a time control method without temperature regulation can allow for up to 2 or more hours based on FDA guidance.

There is no such thing as a burger flipper, certainly not at McDonald's anyway. They were replaced long ago by burger "tongers". They pull open the little yellow drawer of the burger 'nuker' and reach in with their tongs and pull out this round dry shingle of pink slime and place it on a stale bun. Then they place a piece of cheez on it (which won't melt because the pink slime isn't even warm). And there you have it.

The Dutch have had this concept operating for years. It's called FEBO

It is a manned station with the food being inserted into locked shelves which customers can open by inserting coins into the appropriate slots.

It looks like this.

To each their own.
