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: 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.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
