You can rest easy. All of your worst fears about McDonald’s chicken McNuggets, alas, are not true. They don’t grind up an entire chicken — meaning no beaks, no claws, no bones — and as for that pink goop myth? Well, it’s left to folklore.

In a new video series released by McDonald’s Canada, factory workers take viewers on a tour of the factory to show just how chicken McNuggets are really made. But vegetarians beware, it’s still not appetizing to look at.

First the chickens get deboned before the meat gets thrown into a grinder where it’s then blended with seasoning and chicken skin and turned into a vault of brown goop. From there, the mixture get portioned into perfectly cut McNugget shapes, covered in a double layer of batter and tempura (double the crunch!), par-fried, frozen and packaged up to get shipped off to stores for consumption.

Bon appetite, McDonald’s lovers!

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

***in Canada*** not US markets — different standards!!!

look what i found on

To make sure your computer is ready for the game you are interested in, go to an online store that carries the game, look at its software and hardware requirement details. The Sony Play – Station Two is Sony’s second computer game console, the successor to the original Sony Play – Station, and the predecessor to the Sony Play – Station Three. There are plenty of real-time and turn-based strategy games, but few transpire in far-off galaxies and star systems.
