And they say fast food never rots and hence is bad for you.

That is kind of cool, and kind of gross at the same time.

Fast food will rot just fine. Just add a little bit of moisture to it, and watch the mold grow.

I am LDS and a history fanatic. But this is weird.

AlaskaCougar- yeah, but stick it in a jacket pocket and that Quarter Pounder will last a decade or more.

I'm quite certain we had some of this very loaf last Sunday in Sacrament meeting.

I'd like to know more about the Pro-Phy-lactic it's in that's one great container to preserve that long.

History or not... it is disgusting. It is a piece of bread.. it isn't anything I would ever want to own. A piece of moldy bread is not a historical piece in my opinion.

Doesn't this start to verge on "iconography" in a way? It's sort of like the Catholics and their reverance for a piece of a former saint's bone, or a piece of Christ's cross. It seems to me that it's right on the verge of "idol worship" if it hasn't already crossed that line.


Well, we have a piece of stale bread on display in a museum. It's a start! Now we just need the steel bows, chariots, and other artifacts from the great cities and wars we've been taught about.

The full article over at Juvenile Instructor is a fascinating read! I would personally like the recipe for this long-lasting bread.
