MacDonalds Burgers (Not entirely off-topic)



Hi Deon,
                In Sydney, NSW, Austraila, I checked on the price of "Big
Macs" last night and they were $3.00. I forgot to price a cheese burger.

    A bean burreto at Tacho Bell is $1.85 here but a friend of mine who has
been to the USA says bean burretos there are $0.69 in the USA currency.

    For calculation of different currencies this website is useful:-
