Saying McDonald's is ubiquitous in the United States isn't terribly newsworthy. But blogger Stephen Von Worley has creatively figured out the farthest distance any hamburger-loving American could be from the Golden Arches. (Hat tip to BuzzFeed)

"Between the tiny Dakotan hamlets of Meadow and Glad Valley lies the McFarthest Spot: 107 miles distant from the nearest McDonald's, as the crow flies, and 145 miles by car!"
