It's a problem, all right.  Amateur Radio can be a really interesting hobby but it's like any other social activity in that it needs a constant influx of new blood.  It's hard to get kids interested in radio when it's something we all take for granted.  Meanwhile, commercial, military, and government interests are constantly eyeing our spectrum allocations like wolves at lunchtime, and ...

Oh, that kind of ham.  Never mind.

What the article fails to state is that Smithfield, and thus the ham, got bought out by the Chinese a year and a half ago, while Ted Cruz was filibustering Obamacare.

uncleacid: Don Rickles is the oldest ham.


He certainly looks like one

But you'd be wrong,  from what's been posted so far ol Abe #1 at 93
Betty is #2 at 92
And Rickles is #3 with 88

Joan is only 81,   well parts of her anyway,  but not enough to qualify in any contest.

Safe as in you'd live?  Most probably

Safe as in it would taste good?  Not unless you like salt licks

Safe as in you won't get the shiats?   Not a chance in hell

I read an article once about people who buy old canned goods (up to 100 years old!) and eat them because the aging improves the flavor. Apparently canned food doesn't go bad if sealed properly. The "good by" date is only the point at which the flavor starts to change, not when it becomes dangerous to eat.

You're right, if Congress hadn't been trying to stop Obamacare, they totally would have stopped the sale of a company that makes lunch meat and breakfast ham steaks.  You sound just about as stupid as those right wing idiots who babble about Obama playing golf this weekend after the plane got shot down.

Food goes bad because of bacteria. When they can food, they seal it in there at a temperature that bacteria can't survive in. So no matter how long it's in there, there will be no bacteria to spoil the food.

i hear that you should age your beef, as well as fish before eating. i dont have any idea on 1. if this is valid, or 2. if its safe.

There are people who consume 'vintage' foods (New Coke, Reggie Bars, etc.) just to go along with the ride.

Theres been a few articles on Fark about some guy in Sweden I think that buys really old cans of their disgusting version of sardines and eats them...  if they hadn't disintegrated yet.

I found the article

Yeah, and if you find a hundred year old badly canned can, you pretty much can tell just by looking at it.  Then again, after a hundred years, all the bacteria would have probably turned the food into a thick soup and died off.

I don't know about "should" but it used to be a necessity for however many millennia prior to freezers and such, even in places where it's cold enough to store meat and stuff in a root cellar year round.
