Default McDonalds Illuminated Map

I came across this map today. It is a visualization by distance to the nearest McDonald's. The map is all cool and dandy, we have seen these kind of things with Wal-Mart, it really comes as no surprise. However, the best stat to take away from this is that the furthest you can be from a McDonalds in the US is 145 miles- and that's in North Dakota. But who would drive 145 miles to go to a McDonalds?

Ok, cool.

There's only 2 that I know of in my city. Not that many.

Also, on somewhat of a sidenote, there are a total of 0 drive-thrus where I live. People don't believe me when I say it, but every one here is so concerned about the environment that they actually banned all drive-thrus (even drive-up ATMs) in the 80s. For a little while, there was even a ban on gas powered blowers. That didn't hold up very long though because city hall started looking like ****, rofl.
