I repeated this experiment several times during college and I call fraud.

Pretty funny. She's wrong that a burger at every McDonald's in the world tastes the same though, they don't.

But quarter pounders with cheese are fucking two for $3 right now. Two for $3!

I had McDonalds a few weeks ago, because for some reason I craved it after a big backpacking trip. I had a "crispy" chicken sandwich and fries -- I don't know, maybe 1,000 calories? And afterwards, it didn't even feel like I had eaten any food. I was still hungry. After 1,000 calories. That pretty much convinced me to never eat McDonalds again.

@3 - Yeah, in India they are made out of mutton. Mmmmmm, mutton.

Obviously not a McDLT. You couldn't keep the "hot hot" and the "cold cold" for that long.

How do we know other foods would deteriorate in the same conditions? An experiment with no control. Dumb.

I call bullshit on this one. The part that blows it is the 'I bought another one so I could put the 12 year old burger on new paper' ?!?!?

Where is the 12 year old paper at?

Sorry, this does not pass the bullshit test.

Unfortunately - this is a hoax. Look at the packaging of the hamburger. It has the slogan "I'm lovin' it". That ad campaign, according to wikipedia, didn't start until September 2, 2003.

Soemone else did this and after 7 years it was like this. She did it to prove to family and friends what you're really eating. No bullshit.
