So not only will America be the fattest nation, they'll also be the drunkest?

I can see it now: A lot of obese drunk people stumbling around and car accidents rising.

In some countries in europe (germany, netherlands, etc) they (and other fast food restaurants too, like burger king) serve beer, not in every branch store, since... a long time.
But not in bottles, they serve it in the same cups like soft-drinks...

Oh, yes. Let's do as bars, restaurants and clubs do; serve alcohol! Especially since five year olds are usually there! While we're at it, shall we let minors drink?

Why not? If the age of the customer is above the legal drinking age, I don't see any problem. By the way, in Spain they serve beer too.

I don't have much faith that my fellow Americans will control themselves. To become the fattest country in the world, I can't expect them to control their drinking.

The difference between fast food places and bars is that there aren't as many bars around. Where I live there're over 10 fast food restaurants in a 1 mile radius, no bars. There are also several schools in that radius, so I expect the worse if they decide to serve alcohol.

Ghost's reasoning is infallible and indefatigable. Imagine what would happen if some kids went to a McDonalds after school? Or what if the McDonalds was NEXT to a school!

Would depend on the type of school and the age range, as kids would still need to be of a legal age.

Depends where you live though. Where i live (at home, not here) there nearest McDs is like a 20 minute drive, yet within a five minute walk there's six bars.

If kids go to a McDonalds that serves alcohol, the staff working there shouldn't serve any to them. Or ask for the identity card to verify the age in case of doubt. Are you suggesting that they could be able to buy alcoholic drinks regardless their age?

Honestly, I have no idea how things work in America, but here we don't have drunk kids on the streets due to fact that McDonalds serves alcohol.
