Lucas Kwan Peterson is a food columnist in Los Angeles. At great personal risk to his own reputation, he decided to undertake a gargantuan task: ranking the 19 most popular LA fast food french fries. The internet, of course, had some very strong feelings about his opinions.


As soon as Peterson's ranking hit the LA Times, people were in an uproar:

Among his most unpopular picks was putting In-N-Out's burger's dead last—sacrilege among any good Los Angeles resident. He wrote of In-N-Out's fries:

"In-N-Out is always crazy busy so the fries are fresh, at the very least. But they're also bland, crumbly little matchsticks that aren't improved by any amount of ketchup, salt, cheese, or salad dressing you want to add to them."


The top three fries Peterson tried? Five Guys, McDonald's, and Del Taco, in that order.


In a divisive age of big opinions, the superiority of certain french fries is no exception.

Several prominent LA residents, like LA Mayor Eric Garcetti and writer Matthew D'Ambrosio also offered their takes:


What are truly the best fries in LA? Does anyone know? Will we ever know? There are some questions simply too large for humanity.

There are three different types of comas we can have. One is called toxic-metabolic encephalopathy, which is caused by illness or infection across the body. There's the medically induced coma which is caused by medical professionals to temporary cause a deep state of unconsciousness. Then there's the persistent vegetative state where the patient is the unaware of their surroundings and unable to movement.

However, after u/Pilot_Mosley asked Reddit, we're not so sure that every coma patient is completely unaware of their surroundings. Many people reported hearing their family or the nurses talking to them. Some said the had vivid dreams, only to learn those events actually happened.

Redditor Pilot_Mosley wanted to know what actually is going on in the unconscious mind and how it changed them after:

"Patients who woke up from a long coma, what's your story? How different were things?"
