16 January 2011 - Yuk!… How long do you think you can keep a McDonald hamburger without it decomposing?
So, how long do you think you can keep a McDonald hamburger on your shelf, without it decomposing? 2 hours? 8 hours? 2 days? 2 weeks perhaps?
Nope, you are still far from the truth…
Believe it or not, according to Karen Hanrahan, you can keep it for 12 years! And counting! As you can judge by yourself on the picture below, it looks exactly like a fresh one…
The hamburger on the right is from 2008; the one on the left is from 1996.
So let’s make sense of that. We know that any food decomposes rather rapidly right? Think of leaving your bread on your kitchen bench. It goes hard, and then mould develops pretty fast, doesn’t it? So why is the McDonald hamburger resisting any decomposition?
