CathyF: I live in Australia, and at McDonalds (the most popular fast food restaurant here), the biggest burger has a quarter of a pound of meat (its actually called a Quarter-Pounder). I have never seen a burger bigger than that at any restaurant, and I don't think I want to!
IndianInlaw: We have a garbage pick up day like that too. We get a notice in the mail that the council is going to be picking up whatever is left on the curb on a certain date. Everyone puts the stuff out early, and then the council never comes on the stated day, more like 2 days after. This way, a lot of the stuff gets picked up and taken home by other people. Works great!
