If our pictures of fast food haven't totally put you off, you're in luck: In the United States, it is never more than 145 miles to the nearest McDonald's. And that's in North Dakota.As you can see from the map above, you usually are a lot closer. In the east, south, and midwest, the country is basically blanketed with the Golden Arches. What I find most shocking about this map (made by Stephen Von Worley of Weather Sealed), is how perfectly the McDonald's locations outline the country's borders, especially the Canadian border. It's as if they've figured that before you leave the country to go to some heathen otherland, the last thing you need to fortify yourself for your journey is a Big Mac.Via Kottke.
