The existing nodes about Dairy Queen
, Tastee Freeze
, and Stuckies
have overlooked one of the most useful aspects of these restaurants. In the south, these places were valuable signposts
indicating the economic development of a town
. These establishments were particularly useful because of their close proximity to the highway
. An experienced traveler could quickly determine the developmental level of the local people through the following rules:
- If a town contains only a Tastee Freeze one should be wary – it is possible that the local inhabitants will be frightened of automobiles.
- If a town contains a Dairy Queen the place is somewhat developed and may even have teenagers who smoke pot.
- Any location which has a Stuckies will eventually be surrounded by a town. These mega truck-stops will soon be surrounded by a collection of mobile homes – due to the economic possibilities provided by such an establishment.
- Once a township has advanced to McDonald's deployment then all hope is lost. The local residents are almost certainly bitter and jaded.
