There really isn’t a more familiar fast food chain in the world thank McDonald’s. At it’s inception in the 1940’s, McDonald’s was just a modest burger joint with a simple menu and fairly wholesome burgers (at least by today’s standards).
Over the years they have grown to be an international chain with over 35,000 restaurants and an estimated value of over 85 billion dollars. According to The Fiscal Times,
“McDonald’s sells 75 burgers every second.” That amounts to over 2.36 billion burgers per year – roughly the equivalent of eating a million cows.
Given their convenience, low cost and “good” taste humans just can’t seem to get enough McDonald’s. I mean, what can possibly be so bad about a tasty, cheap burger made fast? If you’ve ever asked yourself that question, or you are just curious, see exhibit A below…
Pretty scary huh? Well that’s not even the half of it. I’m sure at some point in your life you have encountered decomposing food and the nasty mold and slime accompanying it from the bacteria induced break-down. Not pleasant but we can agree that decomposition is a naturally occurring process with all organic matter. Well maybe not ALL of it.
In 2013 a new segment surfaced of a man who had an old McDonald’s hamburger that he misplaced. Not really very news worthy until you take into consideration that the burger showed almost no signs of decomposition… And it dated back to 1999!!!
