I don't believe that.

I thought we determined because these sandwiches have little or no moisture and they dry out, effectively preserving them from rotting much like ANY other food object without moisture. Fast food is bad for other reasons, but not this.

Exactly. It's not like the burger stays intact inside your stomach for 14 years.

So many people have done this experiment, but not one of them has dared eat it. Wusses.

Also, because it's as hard as a frigging rock from being dried out. Anyone who has ever lived in a male only college dorm has seen this happen to all sorts of foods.

It's not preservatives.  Dessicated food will hang around for a long time.  It's how we  have been preserving food for centuries.   Bacteria and fungi need moisture to work.

Here is a wedding cake from 1898.  Preservatives have nothing to do with it.  Come to think of it, maybe people should avoid eating wedding cake, too...

We did indeed.

Yep, these are basically mummy burgers.

I have these cookies in my office that we get every other year for being one of the inforworld best places to work in IT (they're coated with fondant? and printed with text/graphcs).

I think I ate the 2006 cookie when I got it, didn't care for it, so just propped the subsequent cookies up on the shelf in my office.

My cookie from 2008 still looks the same as the day I got it.

Sugar is a preservative, and that cake is full of it.

Not a bad idea. I had a piece of wedding cake 14 years ago, and my life has been a living hell ever since...

What about fruits?
I had a mandarin orange that i forgot about for about 3weeks. I then placed it as decoration on a shelf  for over a year as decoration and an offering to a boddhisatva sculpture until i moved. It ended up a bit dried out but it looked ok... just a bit wrinkly. Fungi, bacteria and boddhisatva didnt want to deal with it..

Fruit cakes can last even longer than that, and they don't need artificial preservatives.

I'm calling Fake on this one.

He could have easily found an old receipt and put it in a bag with an old burger he found.

Screw it... as I get older, I'll take all the damned preservatives I can get in me.  Hopefully, when I die, I'll stay looking perfect for a couple years while the bills pile up and the joke will be on the rotten ass city and gov.

He could have easily found an old receipt and put it in a bag with an old burger he found.<-- THAT

We have a classifieds paper called "The Bulletin Board" around here that has been in circulation for at least 40 years. When I was going through some old stuff from when I was a kid, I found a complete one that was used as packing to cushion a couple items. I took it back home (it was at my parent's house) because I KNEW my buddy was looking for a car, and marked some classic cars I also knew he really liked.  He came by and was shiatin` himself over some cars like Novas, Chargers, GTOs and stuff that, seriously... would not be advertised a few years ago.  And he starts calling people.  By about the 10th call he is completely confused.. even has a couple people tell him they HAD a car like that but sold it 20 years ago and he still doesn't think to look at the date on the mag.  Finally, after about the 20th call, he turns to front page and sees the date... and raised hell for the next week (even tho he took it with him and tricked some other people),
Yeah... old receipts, papers, ads and stuff are a lot more likely to be left around than a burger.

Oh my! A pediatrician can't understand the relationship between moisture content and mold growth! Why am I not surprised?

Mine usually come out intact about 18 hours later.
