World's Most Expensive Fast Food (and some game theory)

You can read about it at World's Most Expensive Fast Food. Here is the opening paragraph:

"Dublin is home to Trinity College, the Guinness Storehouse and St. Stephens Green. Here, you'll also find the world's most expensive fast food. In U.S. dollars, a hamburger meal at a medium-priced establishment, as defined by consulting firm Mercer, costs a whopping $9.16."

Here are the top 5:

1. Dublin $9.16
2. Amsterdam $7.88
4. Paris $7.43
4. Brussels $7.43
5. Rome $7.30

In New York it's $5.99. One can only hope that if you are going to Dublin that the cost is worth it, that they have some attractions to see and some fun things to do. I can't see why anyone would go there at those prices:)

: World's Most Expensive Cities To Live

This was in the "Peanuts" comic strip once. Charlie Brown is on the mound talking to himself.

Frame 1: "This guy will never be expecting a fastball..."

Frame 2: "With the bases loaded he'll be expecting a curve. But he also knows I know what he's expecting..."

Frame 3: "So if he's expecting me to pitch what I know he knows I know he knows he's expecting..."

Frame 4: "Where was I?"
