MrBeast's burger joint is a missed opportunity

As a fan of Mr. Beast and his incredible YouTube success, I can't help but feel a bit disappointed with his decision to open a burger joint. With over 100 million subscribers, he has the power to influence a vast audience and potentially change the status quo. But instead, he chose to perpetuate the unhealthy eating habits that already plague the United States.

Thai, maybe?

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying burgers are inherently bad. But when you have a platform as large as Mr. Beast's, it's worth considering the impact of the choices you make. There are so many other types of cuisine out there that could have been promoted, and yet, he opted for burgers. Why not a Thai restaurant, offering both delicious and healthy meals?

I understand that burgers are popular and it's easy to assume that everyone wants them, but with such a massive following, Mr. Beast could have easily introduced his fans to something different. Even if he had chosen a niche vegan or raw food restaurant, I believe his fans would have still flocked to it simply because it was created by their favorite YouTuber.

Impact

I'm not suggesting that everyone should become vegan, as I'm not one myself. However, it's important for people with large platforms to think about the influence they have on their audience and the potential to promote healthier eating habits. The United States is already struggling with poor cuisine choices and bad eating habits, so why contribute to that?

It's disheartening to see someone with such an incredible reach not considering the impact of their decisions. If Mr. Beast had opened a Thai restaurant or something similar, he could have introduced millions of people to a healthier alternative to the standard burger and fries combo.

Even if he was set on opening a burger joint, why not create ketogenic burgers? While still not the healthiest option, it would have been a step in the right direction. It's crucial for those with influence to recognize the power they hold and use it to make a positive change in the world.

I genuinely hope that Mr. Beast reconsiders his decision and thinks about the potential he has to make a difference. With 100 million subscribers, he has the ability to change the status quo and introduce his fans to healthier and more diverse cuisine options.

Unfortunately, it seems that for now, we'll have to settle for Mr. Beast's burger joint.

So, Mr. Beast, please reconsider your decision and think about the potential you have to make a positive impact on the world. We need more influencers like you to take a stand and help change the status quo for the better.

AI is a Commodity

The commodification of AI could also lead to its widespread use in trivial or unimportant tasks, rendering it less valuable than it could be. Smartphones are a good example of this phenomenon – once a cutting-edge development, they are now ubiquitous and not particularly innovative.
