Restaurant Review #2 – In-N-Out Burger

Published February 9, 2015 by Amplio Recorrido

13-things-you-didn-t-know-about-in-n-out-burger

If you’ve never been on the west coast, you won’t know what this is. It’s a very popular, cheap burger place that’s all over California.

The first time I tried In-N-Out, I got a Cheeseburger and Animal Style Fries (it has bacon bits, cheese and thousand island sauce). They also make a regular burger which you can stack all the way to a 5X5, they have an Animal Style burger and a protein burger (no bun, lettuce is the wrapping).

I’m honestly not sure what the craze is about this place. I have been several different times all over Southern California and I can tell you one thing, it’s getting worse as time goes along. The burgers are extremely dry, even with condiments and they are either under cooked (pink in the middle) or overcooked.The fries by their self are absolutely horrible! I can’t even imagine they are made with real potatoes, they honestly taste like imitation fries. You can seriously buy frozen fries in the grocery store that taste better than their fries.

Animal style fries on their own: Horrible! The cheese that’s on them is nuked government sliced cheese. The bacon bits are cheapy, soft imitation bacon bits. Sound appealing yet? The fries also come with grilled onions, if you like slimy, these are for you.

The milkshakes: I hope you’re not lactose intolerant, they use the strongest whole milk they can find, the ice-cream in the shakes have zero sugar. It’s basically like drinking curdled milk.

So, as you can see this place gets a 0/10 stars from me. I would never, ever consider eating there again even if they paid me to do so. The picture will fool you, there’s nothing tasty about their food and that is not a representation of what you actually get.

Public Breastfeeding

Published August 9, 2014 by Amplio Recorrido

No-Breastfeeding1

Public breastfeeding has now become widespread and now a trend has been started where women are taking pictures of them breastfeeding and posting them all over social media. Although I have no problem with breastfeeding in general, I also don’t want to see it on my news feed. I think that people who do this are trying to seek any type of attention they can get and honestly, they are exploiting their children. Allow me to explain.

When I first started seeing these pictures my initial thought was “What in the world are they doing?!” I couldn’t believe that someone would post a picture of their child feeding from their breast on social media and actually try to defend it by saying things like “It’s natural”, “All women should do this” and of course my first reaction was to say “What’s next?! Showing your baby’s poopy diaper, that’s natural and that’s what happens when the milk digests”. Now some of you may feel that I’m wrong here and I’m sure you will because I have been called an idiot and ignorant on social media.

I feel that this is exploiting children because, the women on there who are trying to prove a point do not take into consideration that pictures are on the internet forever and when that child grows up enough to be on social media, the last thing they want to see is them sucking milk from their mom’s boob. It’s embarrassing just like taking pictures of your kid using the potty for the first time or giving them a bath.

I look at it this way, I don’t want my child to see your boob flopped out any more than I want a man to whip out his penis and pee in public. That’s natural but, I don’t want to see it. There are options to not disrespect other people’s children in public and they won’t look away because they are kids and kids notice everything. When people have suggested that these women use covers or feed their kids breast milk in bottles they fire back and say “My child won’t take a bottle” or the famous one “Why don’t you put a cover over your head while you eat” first off, that doesn’t make any sense, a child should not ever be solely dependent on it’s mother’s nipple alone and I don’t suck on anyone’s boob when I eat, I eat with a spoon and a fork. I believe that both of those common reactions are excuses to “Prove a point”.

If a man cannot “be natural” and pull out his penis and pee in public, a woman should not be allowed to expose herself and flop out her boob. People are arrested for peeing in public, having sex in public or exposing their self in any way in public and I believe that flopping your boob out is also exposing yourself in public and should be punishable by law. There’s no excuse why you need to do that. It’s not natural to do that in public and it will not be accepted. I will not allow my child to see a woman’s breast at his young age. I’m not against breast feeding but, there are other ways to do it and regardless of what the mother says, I think that it needs to be enforced.

Recently, there was a story on a woman who went to a public place called Discovery Place in Charlotte, NC and she was told that she would have to go to the bathroom to breast feed her child. She became angry and went to the news with it and of course attention seeking women praised her for standing up for herself. However, she has no right to take her baby to a public kids play place and flop her boob out in front of all those children and I do feel like the company had a right to say what they said. Though she tried using the excuse that she paid for entry and that they don’t force patrons to eat in the bathroom, it’s an invalid argument. The fact is, children are extremely curious and I don’t want them staring at another woman’s boobs. Children are imitators and they do sometimes try things like that on other children when they see an adult having it done by a baby. That is not natural and I won’t stand for it.

Final Conclusion: If you refuse to cover up and you refuse to feed your child from a bottle, stay at home. I will not have to explain to my child why you have your boob exposed and I will not leave a place that I paid for because you want to cause a mess of drama.
