"The unmanned frying stations in the Himalayas were a challenge, but were a boon for lost mountain climbers. And soon they'd done it - wherever you stood on the globe you were no more than two minutes from a Big Mac."

I forgot to mention this last Friday, but there's a great new Upsideclone up by Martin Griffiths: Your Nearest McDonalds...

(Incidentally, I like the way 'clone can just be a place for people who don't usually do this kind of writing to experiment. It makes me want to expand, provide more space.)

Oh, and -- I haven't mentioned this Monday's Upsideclown either. If you've ever wondered how the deadly pressure of deadlines plays with people's minds... Well, Neil's latest piece will show you what happens. He's having a little trouble concentrating, in Morning After.
