McDonald’s is one of the world’s most well-known fast-food chains. Every place you visit in your life will undoubtedly have at least one McDonald’s restaurant to appeal to the locals’ appetites. McDonald’s restaurant is so well-known all over the world. Despite the fact that the food chain’s menu is largely the same all over the world, a number of its locations offer a unique dining experience to hungry customers. Among all the amazing McDonald’s locations, one, however, seems to be the creepiest!

When the McDonald’s in “The Barge” first debuted in 1986 for the 1986 World Expo in Canada, it was an eclectic and exciting marvel. The Friendship 500 franchise was a floating restaurant with the official name Friendship 500, which sounds plain pleasant and wholesome. And things weren’t so horrible in the beginning. The upmarket site was equipped with features that set it apart from the competitors.
Real houseplants, oak flooring, and exquisite art-covered walls were among the pleasures. Rather than making the kitchen a prominent feature, the designers chose to conceal it. How did the food get to the customers? Orders were delivered on a conveyor belt, which some could regard as a postmodern, job-stealing nightmare in today’s world.
The staff wore nautical-themed clothes and even employed a “tugboat” to gather garbage tossed into the water by negligent patrons. Regardless of how well this notion would (or would not) go over today, it was a huge hit at the World Expo.
Millions of tourists from all over the world visited this cutting-edge, floating McDonald’s, securing its status as a must-see tourist attraction. But then something strange happened: Friendship 500 closed at the end of the Expo and rotted away over several years in ruin and neglect.
After being purchased by a real estate developer in 1991, the ocean-worthy structure appeared to have a shot for a second life as a facility to teach visitors about the ocean and undersea technology. The new owner moved the Friendship 500 to Burrard Inlet, near a refinery, where it sat after the purchase was completed.
The ‘McBarge’ Today
So, what happened to the world’s creepiest McDonald’s? A crowdsourcing site aimed to generate funds to resurrect the abandoned edifice in 2017. They planned to use the momentum and nostalgia of a bygone period to help fundraise for the abandoned former McDonald’s. Unfortunately, like the structure itself, the project appears to have been abandoned, leaving the world with a genuinely eerie location.
On the basis of all of this, the future of this erstwhile fast-food ferry does not appear to be promising. But all hope is not lost: the owner of the “McBarge” disclosed in February 2021 that the latest plan is to turn it into a seafood restaurant, but no formal announcement has been made.
(Video) Are All Oranges The Same? Here’s How To Differentiate Them!
If all this while you thought all oranges are the same, then you’re probably wrong! They may look the same, have the same colour and texture or maybe taste the same but no way they are the same.
There are so many names for small, round orange citrus fruits: tangerines, clementines, mandarins, satsumas, not to mention “cuties” and “sweeties.” But how do you know which is which, what the differences are, and how can you tell them apart? We know them as oranges but there are different types of them. And here’s a breakdown to make you see clearer.
Mandarin is the collective name for all easy-peeler type citrus fruit, which are assumed to have originated in north-east India or south-west China, despite the name being used on retail packaging. These kinds have a lot in common, such as a small to medium-sized fruit, a rind that peels away easily, sweetness, a distinct flavour, and popularity!
The Satsuma is a distinct and easily identifiable type of mandarin that is particularly popular in the United Kingdom. It is thought to have originated in Japan in three or four variants, including Okitsu and Mihowase. The rind is easy to peel off, the fruit is delicate, and the flavour is light with a wonderful tang and a hint of sweetness in the background. They’re also quite juicy and have soft segments, which adds to their appeal. Satsumas are only available throughout the season because they do not store well, and there are just a few late-season types. As a result, between January/February and August/September, there are availability gaps.
Clementine is a sort of mandarin that includes several different Common Mandarin variations as well as a few Tangors and Tangelos, therefore it is a type of mandarin rather than a unique variety. Most common easy-peeler types have been referred to as clementines at some point, which is understandable given their likeness in the eyes of customers and the fact that their variations are usually minor until the late kinds hit the market. Except for a brief period in May/June when the Ortanique is the only available mandarin other than Satsumas, there are always certain types of clementines on sale. It would be inaccurate to compare an Ortanique to a clementine because it is far more difficult to peel.
Tangerine is a common term in North America for a variety of later kinds with deep colour and thin, rather tight rinds, such as Honey Tangerine. In the United Kingdom, the word is used more liberally, however it is mainly used to lesser-known clementines and hybrid kinds.
So now you know all about oranges! Despite the difference, they still give that citrusy flavour that is loved by many!
(Video) Known As ‘Dark Tourism’ In Sabah, The Mysterious ‘Agnes Keith House’
Agnes Keith House is actually one of the historic house museums that is located specifically in Sandakan, Sabah, Malaysia. The particular museum is named after Agnes Newton Keith who is an American author known for her three autobiographical accounts of life in British North Borneo. It will be developed as a “Dark Tourism” product.
The house has been restored and turned into a heritage house since the restoration works in the year of 2004. The house provides insights to life during the administration of British North Borneo and is furnished with reproduction of colonial furniture and also antiques. A gallery on the first floor tells the story of Agnes, her books and her family.
It definitely requires some level of courage to visit this mysterious house, so those with a weak heart better not partake in such an activity. According to her third book, White Man Returns, Agnes shared her experience living in the house. Agnes is reportedly happy with the home, although there were some mysterious incidents of note that had happened throughout her stay in the house when Agnes every day saw a tall unrecognizable female figure apparition. At one event she saw the apparition with family, saying goodbye to her husband and taking her own baby before returning to the road in front of the house with body keep moving forward while her head managed to keep straight looking over behind towards Agnes position. After the couple finally left Sabah, many other occupants and guests have claimed to continue seeing the apparition in the house.
The same horror experienced earlier by Agnes also felt by the next house owner following Agnes return to the United States, a new female owner named Rosemary living in the house from 1955 to 1967, the wife of G L Carson while sleeping alone in the house awaken by the sounds of a room door located at the end of the house being closed several times in early dawn and hearing footsteps that getting louder moving towards her room before shockingly saw an unrecognizable female apparition suddenly appeared at the end of her bed with eyes staring at her when she began to open her own eyes that causing her to have quickly fainted. Another incident involving a housemaid who working in the house from 1967 to 1968 saw a similar female apparition standing in the house stairs.
