America's "McFarthest Spot" - where you are the longest distance possible from a McDonald's restaurant - has been identified.

It lies between the two tiny hamlets of Meadow and Glad Valley in South Dakota, from where it is at least two hours drive to the nearest Golden Arches.
The calculation was done by artist and technologist Stephen Von Worley, who mapped the 13,000 McDonald's in the lower 48 states. Alaska and Hawaii were excluded.
From the "McFarthest Spot" the distance to the nearest McDonald's is 107 miles as the crow flies and 145 miles by car.
The results mean that a hungry motorist is always within a full tank of petrol of a McDonald's restaurant anywhere in the continental United States.
Mr Von Worley, 39, plotted the positions of the restaurants on a map on his blog weathersealed.com . Each restaurant is marked with a glowing spot of light and together they show virtually the entire country lit up.
He said: "As expected, McDonald's cluster at the population centres and hug the highway grid. East of the Mississippi, there's wall-to-wall coverage, except for a handful of meagre gaps centred on the Adirondacks, inland Maine, the Everglades, and outlying West Virginia."
