##... calling a flat, rectangular bumpy hotdog anything remotely like a pork rib is really a stretch Marketing at its best -- you have to admire the little scamps :-)

When I was a kid in England I used to watch TV with my dad. We loved some American police program where the here used to go up to a hot dog vendor in the street and say "give me a hot dog with all the fixin's" We imagined that it tasted GREAT (we didn't have hot dogs in England at that time ... at least, I never saw one). So on one of my first trips to America I found myself walking through the streets in Washington DC. Wow -- there was a hot dog vendor -- so I asked for one "with all the fixin's"... I think hot dogs are an acquired taste -- when I bit down into that first one I was expecting something jam-packed with flavor like an European sausage... ... what I tasted was NOT what I was expecting... ... I never told my dad, because I didn't want to disillusion him...

When the McRib first came out several years ago, a few coworkers and I made a special trip to McDonalds just to try it. Google "McRib Locator" and you will find a map of the closest location of this delectable offering.

My wife reckons that calling anything that McDonalds sells "Food" is stretching it..... I do use them while travelling, the coffee in the Aussie McD's is good, and some of the premium burgers are not tooo bad. And it IS quick and easy. Your point about acetic acid Duane....Acetic acid is the main component of natural Vinegar...which comes from the French "vin-aigre" meaning sour wine. Acetic acid is formed from the oxidisation of Alcohol (if what I remember of my high school chemistry is right). But the stuff they use to flavour chips is synthetically produced I think, as is the stuff they used in film developing.

French Fries and those chickenish things they sell are apparently coated in a chemical that either is or is a major component of lighter fluid. I've read that it keeps the oil from bubbling so much. Salt and Vinegar potato chips are often flavored with acetic acid, which was used as stop-bath when developing photographic film. I suppose that there are a lot of bad chemicals that are potentially non-lethal when consumed in small enough quantities. Still calling a flat, rectangular bumpy hotdog anything remotely like a pork rib is really a stretch.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
