The (Lack of) Decay of a McDonald’s Hamburger

Just think of this the next time you decide it would make sense to eat at McDonald’s: “Things that are made from organic material age and decay, especially when they stop being alive. A piece of home-baked bread, say, left on your kitchen counter, will get moldy relatively fast. Lord knows what some ground beef would smell like after a week. But the artist Sally Davies has been photographing one McDonald’s hamburger and fries every day for 137 days. They look basically exactly the same.”

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck. No wonder my stomach always feels like shit after eating fast food (not that I’m prone to eating fast food often, but the feeling is so similar, it’s unmistakable).  [via]
