I...never expected this plot twist https://www.cnet.com/tech/mobile/right-to-repair-and-mcdonalds-ice-cream-why-ftc-is-investigating-broken-mcflurry-machines/
I did not make this connection when I heard the FTC were directing their efforts this way.
But now I have to guess the "haha ice cream machines" framing maybe was coming from people who already understood, and are threatened by, the brilliant accessibility of this as an example.
more explicit food ment than earlier in the thread and kinda gross
on the other, the way i'd first been introduced to this issue with mickey dee ice cream was a warning that pretty much every one of those machines has a lot of mold growing in it because they're impossible to clean properly
