Dear Lifehacker, I work from home and buy myself a takeaway lunch once or twice a week. Unfortunately, the only options near my house are a burger shop or a bakery that sells hot pies. Neither store has any nutritional information on their menu, so I'm not sure which is worse. Am I better off grabbing the burger or the meat pie?

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.

"Is Macca's open on Australia Day?" This is a question more Aussies ask themselves than you might think. The good news is that there will be plenty of McDonald's stores offering piping hot Big Macs on Friday 26 January - you can find the nearest available outlet to your location here.

"Does KFC home deliver?" "Does McDonald's home deliver?" "Do Subway home deliver?"

Admit it: you've probably asked yourself one of the above questions while lounging at home on a Saturday night. We all have. Sometimes you get a craving for a specific fast food but lack the energy/wherewithal/sobriety to get in your car and head to the drive-thru. The good news is that a lot of Australia's favourite fast food restaurants will deliver straight to your doorstep - they just don't heavily advertise it.

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.

The major benefit of ordering pizza is that you’re taking care of dinner AND the next day’s breakfast (and lunch, if you can stretch it). Pizza is one of those magical products that can taste better on the second day – provided you know exactly what you're trying to achieve. Here’s how to get the best results when reheating pizza.

Pizza Hut has announced it will be giving away 10,000 margherita pizzas between August 4 and August 6. According to the company, there's "no catch" - just free pizza. However, before you start salivating at the thought of a delicious cheesy lunch, there's something you need to know from the small print.

We have some potentially bad news for Domino's fans: according to a report in the SMH, the fast food giant is killing off the Chef's Best range. Instead, it will serve up a new range of pizzas that are reportedly smaller and more expensive. It's all part of an image revamp that will see the brand marketing itself towards premium takeaway lovers. Here are the details.

Once upon a time, the only way to get home delivered pizza was by calling on the phone. Not "a" phone. "The" phone. (Most households only had one.)

We can't remember the last time we dialled actual phone numbers to order a pizza, but it turns out you still can. Buoyed by the current fad for all things retro, Domino's wants you to know that you can still order pizzas the old fashioned way - and it's even bringing back the "131 888" number.

As we've opined in the past, burritos are the perfect fast food. They're even more perfect than pizza (case in point: you can't wrap a pizza in foil and stick it in your jacket pocket.) This infographic from Fairmont Hotels breaks down everything you need to know about seven popular burrito styles - from their storied history to the ingredients you need to make your own.

I'm a pretty big fan of dipping sauces, and believe they have many uses beyond dipping. Sweet chilli sauce and the like are obviously fantastic on their intended dippers, but next time you order takeaway, ask for a couple extras and set them aside for later use in sandwich spreads, dressings and marinades.

Here's everything you need to know.
