In just five years there's been a sixfold increase in so-called McRefugees in Hong Kong -- residents who spend their nights sleeping in 24-hour McDonald's outlets across the city, a survey has found.
More than 70% of respondents said they had other places to sleep, such as public housing flats or subdivided units, and the majority had either full-time or part-time jobs, challenging the common perception that these sleepers are homeless or unemployed. "They have places to sleep, but they don't go back home," The million dollar question is WHY don't they go back home?
By Jessie Yeung, CNN        

Human lives mean little when those in the WEST see a bigger gain through war

What better place to wake up if you're having a Big Mac Attack?

one reason may be the cost of running an A/C in their own homes.

Just happened to hear some of these sleepers saying not only air cond but bus fare to work place and rental place that is rather small. They sleep in fast food restaurants so that their children could study!
REAL SADNESS!

O.K. that was funny.
Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured. Mark Twain
