Not going to jump on this but I have never heard of any culture wanting less food for the same price. I mean, it doesn't make sense why anyone would accept that.

I spent 5 years as a peace corps worker in Paraguay.

One of the biggest adjustments after returning to the States was the sheer massive size of meals here. Their portion size is much smaller. They take their time with each bite, so they are able to realize they are full after eating far less. Typical restaurant portion sizes in America in particular are astoundingly immense.

HOWEVER - FAIL - Really bad FAIL too.



Huh? Dude you're doing a bad backstroke today....some serious BS what does it have to do with the "Special culture in OC" that you speak of?

Hispanics in America want the same serving of food for their $, matter of fact everyone does.

Yea, I'll get a #3.

"Do you want to under or super size your combo?"

How much is under?

"Its the same price."

How much is super?

"It'll be an extra 59 cents."

The undersize combo sounds good.

You are right. American portions are much bigger. However, they pay the same amount and they can take the food home.

can use the word "fail" in any serious manner.
