Kind of surprising how Japan has the second most number of McDonalds. Thought it would’ve been something like Canada.
Map 6 of Pangae was… interesting. Wish there were more like those

Pro sport coaches the same only their salaries are weeeell above the others. http://www.coacheshotseat.com/SalariesContracts.htm Cap't Jack
