Why bother? Sure, you can try to run a fancy restaurant,
but if all the people want is McDonald's you're soon out
of business. You can set up your own burger franchise,
offer onion rings instead of fries, put a couple of
ethnic dishes on the menu and replace cheddar with
cottage cheese, but what makes you money is still the
same ol' meat patty. :)
I never regret my failures, but I regret every missed opportunity.
