six months ago, new york city-based artist and photographer sally davies, started the “happy meal project.”  she initiated the project to prove a friend wrong. he believed that any burger would mold or rot within two or three days of being left on a counter.

“I told my friend about a schoolteacher who’s kept a mcdonald’s burger for 12 years that hasn’t changed at all, and he didn’t believe me when I told him about it.  he thought I was crazy and said I shouldn’t believe everything that I read, so I decided to try it myself.”

Wellness and nutrition educator karen hanrahan has indeed kept a mcdonald’s hamburger since 1996 to show clients and students how resistant fast food can be to decomposition.  should we be worried?

davies is also considering keeping her experiment going for a long time. “it ceased giving off any sort of odor after 24 hours,” she said, adding: “you have to see this thing.”

.kfc double down sandwich.

Filed under: food,no ma'am.,Uncategorized — capricious_me @ 5:51 pm

i have despised this sandwich since its debut.  i keep seeing commercials about it, so i had to dedicate an entry to it.

two boneless white meat chicken filets (original recipe or grilled), two pieces of bacon, two slices of monterey jack and pepper jack cheese and colonel’s sauce: a heart attack waiting to happen.

people with high blood pressure, stay away from this joker. there are almost 1500 grams of sodium per sandwich!

.dogs and cats to be taken off menus in China.

Filed under: food,in the news — capricious_me @ 10:41 pm


The practice of eating dog and cat meat — an age-old delicacy in parts of Asia — could be banned as legal experts consider the first law in China against animal abuse and cruelty, reports The Guardian. If passed, violators could be charged with fines of up to 5,000 yuan ($730 U.S.) and up to 15 days in jail.
Over 10 million dogs and 4 million cats are murdered every year for their meat or fur, according to livestock and poultry slaughtering administration departments in China. Eating both animals has long been viewed as promoting bodily warmth by practitioners of traditional medicine, though today the animals are often simply consumed for sustenance.
