You just admitted to eating from a dumpster!
One more reason why this thread is less palatable than baloney - everything some people read is gospel.
chicken nuggets are beak and feet, oh the madness over pretend die burgers. Eat carrots, then, get off our backs.. lmao..

I think the majority of people are soo dumb and impartial today,
that they would continue to eat this $&^% even if they knew exactly how it was made and what was actually in it.

The frightingly slow decomposition of McDonalds foods has been covered here before on ATS, but this new article sums up everything about the issue, why it happens, has links showing burgers and buns which have not decomposed in TWO DECADES, ridicules the MSM and finally sums up the Human Race in one paragraph!
PLEASE READ SOURCE
It's always entertaining when the mainstream media "discovers" something they think is new even though the natural health community has been talking about for years.
The latest "new" discovery by the mainstream media is that McDonald's Happy Meal hamburgers and fries won't decompose, even if you leave them out for six months. This story has been picked up by CNN, the Washington Post and many other MSM outlets which appear startled that junk food from fast food chains won't decompose.
TWO DECADE YEAR OLD BURGER: MUSEUM
Why don't McDonald's hamburgers decompose?
With meats, the primary reason why they don't decompose is their high sodium content. Salt is a great preservative, as early humans have known for thousands of years. McDonald's meat patties are absolutely loaded with sodium -- so much so that they qualify as "preserved" meat, not even counting the chemicals you might find in the meat.
To me, there's not much mystery about the meat not decomposing. The real question in my mind is why don't the buns mold? That's the really scary part, since healthy bread begins to mold within days. What could possibly be in McDonald's hamburger buns that would ward off microscopic life for more than two decades?
As it turns out, unless you're a chemist you probably can't even read the ingredients list out loud. Here's what McDonald's own website says you'll find in their buns:
Enriched flour (bleached wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid, enzymes), water, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, yeast, soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated soybean oil, contains 2% or less of the following: salt, calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, wheat gluten, ammonium sulfate, ammonium chloride, dough conditioners (sodium stearoyl lactylate, datem, ascorbic acid, azodicarbonamide, mono- and diglycerides, ethoxylated monoglycerides, monocalcium phosphate, enzymes, guar gum, calcium peroxide, soy flour), calcium propionate and sodium propionate (preservatives), soy lecithin.
Great stuff, huh? You gotta especially love the HFCS (diabetes, anyone?), partially-hydrogenated soybean oil (anybody want heart disease?) and the long list of chemicals such as ammonium sulfate and sodium proprionate. Yum. I'm drooling just thinking about it.
Now here's the truly shocking part about all this: In my estimation, the reason nothing will eat a McDonald's hamburger bun (except a human) is because it's not food!
No normal animal will perceive a McDonald's hamburger bun as food, and as it turns out, neither will bacteria or fungi. To their senses, it's just not edible stuff. That's why these bionic burger buns just won't decompose.
OUR STUPID SPECIES
Which brings me to my final point about this whole laughable distraction: There is only one species on planet Earth that's stupid enough to think a McDonald's hamburger is food. This species is suffering from skyrocketing rates of diabetes, cancer, heart disease, dementia and obesity. This species claims to be the most intelligent species on the planet, and yet it behaves in such a moronic way that it feeds its own children poisonous chemicals and such atrocious non-foods that even fungi won't eat it (and fungi will eat cow manure, just FYI).
Care to guess which species I'm talking about?
That's the real story here. It's not that McDonald's hamburgers won't decompose; it's that people are stupid enough to eat them. But you won't find CNN reporting that story any time soon.
Pretty much sums it all up dosn't it? Im off to eat a raw carrot or two.......

They might be right about the non-decomposition, but they are wrong about us being the only animal to eat them, I know for a fact that dogs love them and so do the birds, rats and flies.
Im not sure if they asked for no pickle, onion or mustard.....cant get to the site....I think the better looking ones were orderd as "meat and cheese only" despite the picture of a normal one shown at one point in the video.
Ive worked in Mcdonalds here in Australia and found mouldy buns under/behind the bench...they cant have been more than a month old as it is pulled out at least each month for maintenance. They might use different ingredients here, or maybe its cuz it wasnt the reg bun (the cheese and hamburger one).
Still....I try to avoid it myself, If I gotta to eat there I get the ceaser salad.edit on 17-10-2010 by polarwarrior because: (no reason given)
