It depends. If you are somewhat of an philanthrop you may care about the individual's health. If you aren't, but live in a society with a health care system, you may have concerns that the health care system would get more expensive for the rest of the people, including you, when more and more people have an unhealthy lifestyle and produce costs. And even without a health care system, you may be concerned as your society/country is in competition to other societies/countries and unhealthy people are less productive in your society/country.

There was controversy over this? Or did you just say that to get your thread noticed...

What controversy? This is absolutely inane...and quite frankly a long way from the days of "Condom Depot" plastered on everyone's shorts.

When did condoms become controversial?

But you're right, this isn't really something worth mentioning. At least Burger King doesn't produce in Asia because there are cheap laborers. BK is far less controversial than Nike to be honest.

The gun thing is very off-putting for me though (and I would guess for most people outside of North America).

When it comes to the bolded statement you quoted from me, I'm definitely being facetious, but only to make a point. I live in the US, and of course I don't want to see anybody die at 50 from a heart attack because of bad eating decisions, but let's backtrack a tad...it's a T-shirt haha. I'm just trying to say that people need to have some personal accountability for their actions.

As for the other person who quoted me in regards to McDonald's sponsoring the Olympics, I had no idea that McDonald's is now the *only* vendor...

That's jacked.
