I miss the .99 Jumbo Jack. I lived on those when I was in school.

I have one in my kitchen drawer. Come to think of it, I have no idea how it got there.

The last Big Mack I ever ate was in one of those Styrofoam packages. Whoppers were 39¢ went to 44¢, then to 49¢ in a hurry. Gas was 25¢ but occasionally went to 19¢. A great car got 5 mpg. The cops were cool, if you got caught with beer you dumped it out. Life at 15- 18 was fun. 1967- 1970 Except for that Vietnam thing. We had a draft lottery, my year they expected to draft to 140 I drew 139. So I sat waiting for the year to end. I think they went to 86 so I was never close.

Yep, if they didn't make you dump it (aka "plant it") and instead confiscated it but did not write you, you know what they were doing after work that day.
