It's like they're trying to sell good food to people who don't want good food
There's lots of tasty vegetarian stuff out there and it doesn't taste like regular burgers.
And I actually consider that a plus!
I do wonder if fast food is a young persons life style.
My mother's got Alzheimer's, and she's become a ridiculously fussy eater--but for the worst. The only things she'll eat at any restaurant, no matter how fancy the place, are burgers, fries or pizza. My folks hadn't been at a McDonald's in 20+ years. These days during weekends (the only time they leave the house) they only alternate between that and A&W (which IMO is even worse than Mickey Dee's). Anything else will be left on the plate mostly untouched.
I can't imagine what they'll do with her once we have no choice but to bring her to a nursing home.
Well I BK burgers tend to haunt me for the rest of the afternoon, but when I see these veggie burgers advertised, the first thing I want to know - what crap are they putting in the mix to make them taste like burgers. Am I going to eat magic flat stuff to save the planet?
Not a chance.

I've tried 3 things...
* Burger patty - it smell and taste like chicken sausage... I hate that so I will skip it next time
* Kebab - it was good, but nothing special... However as vegetarian I will probably buy it more to make my food intake more diverse
* 'Meat'balls - far the best - I already made it several times, as my carnivore wife and kids like it very much too...

So I do not want to eat chocolate cake, but like the taste. And I like apples. Should I mix apples with other stuff, that needs to be done in a factory, needs transportation, and is anything but natural, but tastes like chocolate cake, or should I simply eat apples ?
I tried an Impossible Whopper a month ago and was underwhelmed. It tasted beefy more or less; but in a subtlety not quite right way like a low quality patty with cheaper additives/filler. Texture was a bigger fail, it was way too smooth and homogeneous.

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

But given that I'm not using those settings more than once, should I really be doing that? Two short-lived variables aren't going to make too much difference but I'm still doing it for cosmetic reasons and that can't be good ...
Either way, it's easy enough to split a method call where there are half a ton of arguments over several lines of text but what about when it's just one of the arguments that's causing the thing to scroll for miles? (Lambdas being a common cause of this).
Hardly a matter of life and death but I'd be interested to hear the thoughts of others on this.
