Why is it so hard to be different?

I was learning about the different types of market structures today, and learned that restaurants are Monopolistic Competition markets. Which means, many producers try to make differenciated products. It is so hard to make your restaurants different from others, when really they are all the same. Chilli's, Applebee's, Ruby Tuesdays, T.G.I.Fridays, etc.McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, etc.They all try to do something different, but it is all still the same. Why is that?See More

Couple of rules of thumb that I follow:
- No more than a 15lb bird
- Season well (salt,pepper, fresh herbs)
- Don't stuff!!
- First Hour @ 450 degrees Breast side down
- Turn down to 350 degrees Breast side up
- Baste occasionally
- Cook until thigh meat is at 170 degrees
- Let rest at least 45 minutes before carving

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
