Some Canadian Roads Smell Like French Fries Thanks to Recycled Oil

Fryer oil turns plain old potatoes into delicious french fries. It powers our biodiesel cars. And, now, it's being used to turn the dusty surfaces of rural Canadian roads into stable makeshift asphalt—AND THEY SMELL LIKE FRENCH FRIES. God bless our obsession with that infernally unhealthy liquid. » 4/03/14 3:40pm 4/03/14 3:40pm

Fast Food Restaurants Were Supposed To Be Completely Automated by Now

In the 1989 movie Back to the Future Part II, the food of 2015 looks incredibly familiar — it's just prepared a bit differently. Toss a miniature Pizza Hut pizza onto a pan, stick it into your Black & Decker Hydrator, tell the machine how you want it cooked, and three seconds later your pizza is ready.

McDonald's Outside of America Looks Way More Awesome

I'm jealous of the French two days in a row. McDonald's has commissioned designer Patric Norguet to redesign its 'restaurants' in France and he's come up with a stunning redefinition of the most popular fast food chain in the world. It's fit more for Michelin star restaurants than McDonald's. » 1/05/12 10:00pm 1/05/12 10:00pm

'Seriously McDonalds' Hoax-Pic Angers Internet, McDonald's

Over the weekend, many people became acquainted with this photo for the first time.

Nevertheless, the pic seems to have caused yet another PR problem for the » 6/13/11 5:00am 6/13/11 5:00am
