      Wow, people back then weren't fat or obese and always had a smile on their face. I sure wish the world still had this alright.

      So true, before McDonalds and all the crap that people eat today because they don't have time (according to them) to eat better.
      They won't have time alright.......in years of life that is...

      McDonalds was much better back then! They say that before, it was actually made of real stuff and was much better quality- of course. Yeah, it sucks not many people care nowadays- and if it won't get better, imagine how life's gonna be in about 20 years! And I'm only 11! That's not good!

      Well I am about 30+ years older than you, and yes, Mc Donald's food was much better back then. You are wise beyond your years...best of luck to you in all you do :)

      Haha! Thanks! You're pretty wise too! And now, maybe there's a tiny light in my mind telling me that the future might not be too bad- maybe it'll be cleaner? Who knows? I wish luck to you too! :D
