    From the [link=http://www.bolltd.com/firm.asp?page=history]web site[/link] of the architect of McD's HQ:

    The McDonald's corporate headquarters was the first commissioned corporate project BOG received. Beyond the awards received for the design of the building, the projected is notable for the construction technique used for the exterior skin. The concrete panels were precast and preglazed at the manufacturing plant reducing construction time and costs.

    The interior of the building is also a dramatic departure from traditional design. There are NO walls. Landscape features separate the offices and individual departments. This created a "living room" environment which is more people-oriented and creates greater productivity and interaction among employees.

    Fixed that GIF.


    I worked at McD's when I was in high school. I really liked it, other than the customers. But the management and processes were great.

    ok, am posting to check my "star" count,

    and so we can now have our own version of "Star Wars" [face_whistling]



    //edit//

    to include research from these forums...............

    Why are there stars next to usernames in the ?Who is watching you?" list, but nowhere else throughout the JC?

    [blockquote]The stars previously existed on the JC, to indicate how many times a person has posted. However, due to complaints from some JCers that they promoted elitism as well as the rush for people to post simply to raise their post count (spamming), the stars were removed. However, when the stars were removed, there was an error and thus stars still remain on the ?Who is watching you?" list. They are based on a user's total post count (including deleted posts). Stars were awarded at 50, 250, 500, 1000, 5000, 10,000, 20,000, 30,000, 40,000, and 50,000 posts. [/blockquote]

    As stated earlier in this thread, we are going to try them out for a limited time. We will re-evaluate the situation in a month or two and decide whether or not to keep them turned on. We now have the ability to turn them on and off ourselves, so waiting on IGN won't be an issue.

    xkcd changed their entire website to look like a geocities page yesterday. Unfortunately it's back to normal now, but here is a mirror of what it looked like:
