In honor of today's release of Windows 7, Microsoft is apparently teaming up with Burger King to offer a Windows 7 Whopper. The seven patty burger is being offered only in Japan, and will be available for the next seven days.
Unfortunately, from the looks of the ad below, this monstrous burger appears to be severely lacking when it comes to cheese. We say, if you're already willing to shovel about a day's worth of calories down your throat with a seven patty burger, what's a few hundred more?
Then they had a follow-up report that included a video from CNN.
In case the advertisement wasn't enough, here's some footage from CNN of the Windows 7 Whopper. Seven patties, 1.7 pounds of hamburger, 2120 calories, and yet it's not available in the US. What gives?
I could in theory, eat that. But I'm sure it would knock about forty minutes off of my life span and I just don't know.

Speaking of "experiences," this band did Jimi Hendrix covers in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Summer of Love. While the guitarist sounded more like a Hendrix-disciple in terms of style, ala Ray Vaughn or Trower, the band was tight and did Hendrix proud.
The Teen still isn't technically a teen, because he couldn't handle the music's volume. I loved the band, though besides the volume, we couldn't stay and watch because we were there to eat. Downtown is cheaper than The Strip overall, in terms of pricing.
Dude, Tony Roma's time! Not the greatest, but it is still a good solid chain food that you know won't let you down. Be forewarned though, the restaurants in this casino share their bathrooms! Now mind you, we were seated quickly, but I timed my bladder out for the bathroom to be nearer than it was and it was a real adventure trying to cut back through the crowd to get to the restroom.
Here is the Cowboy that you have seen in "Crime Story," "Honey, I Blew Up The Baby," Miller Genuine Draft ads, and so many others.
I have literally dozens more pics, but I keep putting off uploading them. When I get around to my next series of vacation pics, you will see a mall that is unlike any other...think Francis Ford Coppola's take on Casablanca. The city, not the film.
