This morning, multiple news outlets in Australia reported that McDonald's is removing cheeseburgers from the Happy Meal menu in a bid to encourage kids to make healthier choices. Don't believe it. McDonald's has confirmed that the Happy Meals cheeseburger is here to stay. Hurrah!

A technical paper about growing hair follicles in a laboratory was reported this week as a discovery of a baldness cure in the fryers at McDonald's. "Japanese scientists say eating McDonald's fries could cure baldness," Australia's 9 News reports. No. No they do not.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

I was having a conversation with an old work friend yesterday. Both of us used to be fast food addicts. There was a McDonalds underneath our workplace and we'd eat lunch there everyday.

"I can't eat that crap now," he told me. "It makes me feel like crap."

The recipe for McDonald's Big Mac sauce has allegedly been leaked online and it is -- as most mass-produced sauces are -- a long list of oil, corn syrup, stabilisers, emulsifiers, flavourings and preservatives. It's (kind of) interesting, but not exactly helpful for those who want to replicate the sweet and tangy special sauce for their burgers at home.

"I'm going to get some Chicken McNuggets® if anyone wants to come get some. Will probably get some sweet 'n sour sauce to go along with it idk."

This is a story about a Facebook event - possibly the greatest since my neighbour organised a casual Pokemon Go walk and thousands of people showed up. It's a Facebook event for nuggets, folks.

Today is National Cheeseburger Day. Which sounds ridiculous, because every second Wednesday should be National Cheeseburger Day. However, McDonald's is celebrating by giving away FREE cheeseburgers all day! You know you want this deal. What's the catch?

For the past few years, McDonald's Australia has been inviting customers to grill the company about its products on the Our Food Your Questions website. No question is off-limits, including whether Quarter Pounders have shrunk in size (they have) and whether McMuffins use free-range eggs (they don't). While this was obviously a PR stunt designed to engage customers and their wallets, the amount of transparency still surprised us. Here are 15 of the most revealing -- and weirdest -- responses from the campaign so far.

Dear Lifehacker, McDonald's and Hungry Jack's both claim that their premium burgers are made from Angus beef. From my understanding, this is just a breed of cow rather than a special cut of meat. Do different types of cow really have unique tastes or is this just a marketing gimmick used to bump up the price of burgers?

For lovers of burgers and fast food, the legend of the "secret menu" is a tantalising one, promising a secret club of tasty, cheap and ridiculously over the top food. Only one fast food outlet has openly confirmed having a secret menu -- and that's the infamous In-N-Out, which is sadly not available outside of the US (unless you make your own). So how do we go for secret menus here, in the land down under?
