One Reason I Love Science and the Freedom to Choose What I Eat

I came across this photo via facebook.

2 Year Old Burgers and Fries
Click to enlarge

It’s a picture of 2 year old hamburgers and fries from four different fast food places. The caption reads

“Our fast “food” display is now 2 years old. The word food is questionable, since the bread-like and meat-like substances have not molded or spoiled in any way. Bugs won’t even bother with it. Please think twice about giving this to your kids. You have a choice, but they don’t. We truly are what we eat.”

So let me get this straight. It never rots. It never moulds. It provides calories we can convert to energy. It tastes good to humans. And it is NOT appealing to the common fly. A creature that breeds on and eats manure.

I personally think science may have developed the perfect food!!

    It depends where one would leave this food! If it was left outside I suspect it would look different than if left in the fridge or a container. I would have my doudts that this has been sitting on someones counter for two years(I could not live with the smell after a while). And in our home we see very few flies or other insects, what with the upgrades in energy effiency they can’t get in.
