This is quite possibly the absolute stupidest thing I have ever read on this entire message board. I hope it's a joke, but if your serious I feel sorry for you. If you actually believe this stuff, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I want to sell ya (courtesy-Ann Landers) Well anyway read on for more of my comments...

: I have recently discovered a correlation between the type of door on an establishment and the type of attitude of the people in that establishment. In the case of mcdonalds, they use large heavy doors that seem rather hard to open (relative to doors of many other businesses). The purpose of these doors is that people, once they enter the building, they will subconsciously think that they are now trapped by that heavy door. This will motivate them to buy that extra large, fat saturated meal--and possible supersize it! They do this because that they think that this will give them the strength to open that very heavy door and escape from the oppressive environment of the restaurant. Of course, the they were able to get in because of their extreme hungar and the fact that they aren't smart enough to remember their previous experiences.

What about the people at drive thru who don't even enter through the door? What is motivating to buy that extra large saturated fat meal--and possibly super size it? Over 60% of fast food business is at the drive thru. It looks to me that the people at drive thru who don't even walk through the door are just as eager to eat the high fat food as the people who go inside.
