If only it was in my stomach for 4..5..6...7 months! I'm pretty sure i'll fire that out in less than 18 hours.

Might it be that the fries didn't decay because they were thoroughly salted? I know that McDonald's salts their fries while they're in their little tanning bed, where as many street vendors leave the salting up to you.

I know salting other foods goes a long way towards preserving them. Just a thought.

Salt is a preservative guys, nothing to see here.

What the fsck is the point of this? You put an apple in a jar for a few months it too will get slimey, moldy, and disgusting. This is NOT analogous to what happens in your body. This is food rotting, and this "experiment" demonstrates nothing except that organic matter rots over time.

Hmm. The point of cooking is that you kill all living things in said cooked item. The germs and spores from your hands and the air find fertile ground in the soft moist meat, veggie toppings and buns. But the fries have had ALL their water boiled away by the super hot oil.

Congratulations, you have rediscovered the fact that earth based life forms need water to live, even the little slimy, fuzzy forms that recycle dead things into dirt.

This lesson can be reviewed at any time by taking a look at the difference in things growing in the desert versus the rain forests.

I have a chicken McNugget that's over 5 years old. I kept it because it looks like a duck. No mold or anything... looks edible even. I can send a pic if you want.

I just did a test and yes Mcdonalds fries did last about 13 days but it still got mold on the thirteenth day. I'm not proving anything but maybe they have changed something since he did them, who knows they still last a long time and they make me want to puke haha.

I once let a slice of white bread sit in a zip lock bag for a whole year & it still looked the same, no mold or anything. My healthy bread molds in a week.
