Wow, I have tried a lot of things in my life. I think it is funny that one thing I have never had is a Big Mac, nor do I think I will ever had one. I have had cheeseburgers and hamburgers from McDonald's but I don't think I have ever actually tasted the Big Mac. I am fairly certain it is not a big loss!
