Fast food where you can shoot the servers with fake guns
A fast food restaurant where you use a fake gun to shoot at the
servers who are dressed like deer and who then acrobatically
up your options (which you have punched into the gun) in a faux
I thought of this while waiting to order food at my weekly fast
and thinking how what had once been a pretty
difficult and awkward thing is now, while still a pain in the ass,
sort of routine and that I excecute it with minimal energy, making
sure to only make one brief eye contact, kind of like a gun shot. I
guess if you had to shoot your dinner you would work out a
minimal energy way to do it too.
||So, you fantasise about shooting your servers?
||Right, take a seat over here please.
||I doe'nt approve of anything that reduces something so serious as firing a gun to " excecute it with minimal energy, making sure to only make one brief eye contact, kind of like a gun shot "
||" obligatory question regarding your experience and training with firearms must go here "
||It's old mcdonalds' fast food factory farm, eieio, so instead
of free range hunting of the employees, they should be
systematically slaughtered on that farm with a bolt gun
here and a cattle prod there and everywhere a prod prod
||I was trying to get at the minimal energy you would need to
learn to expend to make a kill if you had to do it every day
to eat, in scarcity, so as to be able to conserve energy in
case you needed it for an emergency. I was considering
how rediculous it feels or it felt back when it used to be a
bigger deal for me to get all worked up about the social
interaction that it takes to get dinner. And then I realized
why I was getting all worked up about it. My experience
over the years has been that no matter how casual or
serious the interaction feels and no matter how
standardized the fare is supposed to be, every little thing
counts and every eyebrow flicker of that interaction
translates directly somehow into the quality and or
quantity of the resulting food, just like I imagine it must
when you are taking the spirit of an animal to survive.
||I thought this would be an idea for fast food venison burgers.
||I have been thinking about this in the subtext of ken
kesey, so maybe the bang going off when you look the
factory machine in the eye is pure polarity discharge
scrambling eachothers brains with sensory
electroconvulsive therapy. Like McMurphy looking into
the eye of Nurse Ratchet a free range brain looking into
an institutional brain, and the eventual destruction of
the free range brain in a symbolic event derived from
the same mass utilitarian systemization , the customer
recieves the same powerful message: you are not free!
But this is a bipartite system where the employee is
exposed to demand side system energy and is shocked in
return by the message: you can be free, in the role of
customer in the same system.
||It's not a difficult analogy to pull off to say one system
makes its impression on another. The customer makes
an impression on the restaurant, the restaurant on the
customer. The ultimate manifestations of evaluatuve
consumer commodity meat industry, fast-food the non-
brain object and the nonbrain organisation of automaton
behaviour , and psychiatry the brain and complete
behaviour of the meat form institutionalization. And the
merger of these in industrial psychology.
||In this perspective everything including people are
viewed as meat, but in a commodity sense, and in what
way the meat is valuable for example meat that
consumes, meat that is consumed, and meat that
produces, and the commodity evaluation of people-as-
meat and the evaluation procedure by the management
structure of the institution machine infrastructure.
