Capitalist dystopia in its essence. Fetish for AI and normalization of mass surveillance, after all, AI's need to be fed, right?

[-] Chozo@kbin.social 20 points 4 months ago

If you're in line at Burger King, your life's already in kind of a dystopian place as it is. Clearly, several things have gone wrong for you to end up here.

[-] RisingSwell@lemmy.world 14 points 4 months ago

Hah, a line a burger king.

[-] hubobes@sh.itjust.works 10 points 4 months ago

No other fast food chain here (we don’t have that many options) has as many vegetarian options, so if I crave a cheap mediocre burger it will probably be Burger King.

I don't need to be a Burger King consumer (which I'm not) to consider this news a dystopia.

[-] Critical_Insight@feddit.uk 4 points 4 months ago

I prefer Burger King over most restaurants.

I'm probably going to order a burger anyways so I don't see the need to pay extra for a fancy one that I need a knife and fork to eat when I can get just as tasty burger from BK.

Burger King where you live must be a hell of a lot better than the ones near me.

With them being a franchising you sorta expect that

[-] Spacehooks@reddthat.com 1 points 4 months ago

They mail 5$ coupons for 2 wopper meals. It's hard to pass up.

Or I just have cheap taste buds. While to other people food is a pleasure to me it's fuel.

[-] Anemia@lemmy.world 6 points 4 months ago

I think you care food-pleasure just as much as most people. Otherwise why not eat something healthier, faster or cheaper. I like to think that i didn't use to care much about taste before so for lunch i used to eat 1k kkcal in the form of a unflavoured, unsweetened meal replacement shake, took <5 min to prepare+eat+clean.

The real reason to go is the Bitties in the BK Lounge.

[-] chemicalwonka@discuss.tchncs.de 1 points 4 months ago

I actually didn't understand your point.

I know but facial recognition is becoming more normalized than it should
