McDonalds decomposition experiment

Morgan Spurlock in the film Supersize Me places a Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish and other fast food into jars to test decomposition rates. Watch out for the surprise with the fries.

Completely pointless. Food doesn't just decompose in your gut, it's broken down by acid and bacteria.

The point is, that there was no bacteria that wanted to attack and decompose the fries. In other words, those fries aren't food. They're a chemical cocktail.

Latest comment: Yep. You're SO right. By your "if it doesn't rot it's not food" theory, Beef Jerky isn't food either. The Fries are so think that they'll have been heated all the way though, thus nailing any bacteria. This experiment and the conclusions drawn from it are as scientific as religion.

bacteria doesn't just magically appear, it usually starts from being treated someones hands in this case. the normal fries would have been cut from potatoes at the restaurant, however mcdonalds fries are machinecut, and are usually scooped up, very little human contact, I'd be more worried about food rotting faster.
