well certainly from a user's perspective, then the burger should satisfy
hunger, be nutritionally beneficially and be very tasty.

unfortunately, as with many software situations, the requirements for the
user of the system are completely divergent to other seemingly *important*
system principles.

and this is how we live in a world upside down, where people actually think
that a burger is *better* when its metric is one of amount sold......
