There's nothing better about living in the 21st Century than the ability to order, pay for and arrange delivery of food from the comfort of our own homes. Thanks to the internet, we don't even have to talk to anyone to do it. Though delivery has traditionally been reserved for pizza and cheap Chinese takeaway, you might be surprised how many of your favourite fast food joints deliver — from Red Rooster and Subway to gourmet burger joint Mary's and decedent dessert maestro Gelato Messina.

If you want to be remotely healthy, don't eat junk food. It's that simple. Because it's really not worth it (oh but it is, sometimes) when you try to burn off all those bad kilojoules you just ate. Think about the exercise! Think about the weights! Think about the cardio! Think about all that when you're about to eat a Big Mac and Fries because you need about an hour and a half of cardio or two hours of weights to whip that out your system.

The tiny adobe structure behind a chain-link fence on a busy Southern California street doesn't look like much today. But the first Taco Bell played a big role in the fast-food revolution, and more importantly, it helped to introduce the idea of Mexican food to US diners.

When you first bite into a Big Mac, it is absolutely glorious. The two patties sandwiching the chewy bread in the middle with the lovely thousand island sauce mixing in with the pickles and lettuce, the taste is iconic. Add in fries and a sip of Coke in between bites and you have reached Fast Food nirvana. But after you eat a Big Mac? Your body doesn't always feel so hot.

Most humans have accepted that fast food burgers will never look as good in real life as they do in commercials and advertisements. Those puffed-up buns, saliva-inducing patties, perfectly melted cheese and wonderfully dressed greens are all disgustingly limp in real life. But we eat them anyway! But what if you asked the fast food restaurants to try a little harder? Could they make a burger look like the advertisements?

American fast outlet Carl's Jr is coming to Australia, although you won't be able to find it in Sydney — or any other capital city — straight away. A store on the Central Coast of New South Wales will be the business's Australian beachhead, with a total of 10 franchises on the central, mid and northern NSW coast already locked in. Capital cities are in Carl's sights, but nothing has been signed off just yet.

In the 1989 movie Back to the Future Part II, the food of 2015 looks incredibly familiar — it's just prepared a bit differently. Toss a miniature Pizza Hut pizza onto a pan, stick it into your Black & Decker Hydrator, tell the machine how you want it cooked, and three seconds later your pizza is ready. The appliance even slices it for you.

This isn't exactly a news flash but hey, fast food isn't good for you. And though sometimes that burger or that hot dog might look appetising in your head, it never looks like that in real life. Jon Feinstein's photography series about fast food takes the common items we know and love and uses a scanner to create images of them. The results are haunting, soulless and almost depressing. This is the food we enjoy!

We had a pretty good run, folks. Humanity invented some pretty awesome stuff. We figured out how to harness electricity, we split the atom and we're even closer than ever to understanding the origins of the universe. All of that is for nought now, though: Burger King has just called a halt on all scientific achievements from here on out with the invention of the hands-free Whopper holder. Stop the planet. I want to get off.

The golden arches hold a special place in our hearts (or waistlines). The Big Mac, the chicken nuggets, the french fries — they're all in your face delicious and define McDonald's better than Ronald ever could. But McDonald's in other countries get to enjoy more than just the ordinary greatness; they have wonderful menu items, like poutine, green tea McFlurrys, Spam and spaghetti.

For the burger joint's latest campaign in Japan, it's going for flavours from France, India, and... Australia. But while Aussies stuff down the McOz and Serious Lamb Burgers, in Japan, the Aussie Deli sandwich looks like this. Unwrapping the sandwich reveals a bun, lettuce, bright orange cheese, and pastrami. There's some sort of vegetable relish and mustard. And seriously, what is going on with this TV commercial?
