    • GOP Lawmaker Head-Butts Camera Rather Than Answer A Question About Trump

      Rep. Don Young of Alaska really didn’t want to answer this one.

      Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) came up with a novel way to avoid a question about President Donald Trump on Thursday.

      Instead of ignoring the activists from the progressive group MoveOn.org who were asking it, he head-butted their camera.

      “There you go,” he said, then walked into an elevator to end the strange encounter.

            • Jackie Speier, the congress woman who was shot multiple times (and left to die) by the cult of Jim Jones in 1978 has clear words regarding Devin Nunes allegations, that the fact finding committee is a cult

              Devin Nunes calling the Intelligence Committee’s fact-finding mission a cult is dispicable. I know about cults. Cults are led by maniacal narcissists who expect complete adoration and relinquishment of independent thought. I suggest Mr. Nunes look elsewhere

              • He's the current owner. So I have a little influence.
                I'm going to ask him to make me a mod again.
                So I can just delete all you DL posts.

                  Iceland livestreams 10-year-old McDonald's cheeseburger

                  When McDonald's closed all its restaurants in Iceland in 2009, one man decided to buy his last hamburger and fries.

                  "I had heard that McDonald's never decompose so I just wanted to see if it was true or not," Hjortur Smarason told AFP.

                  This week, it's 10 years since the seemingly indestructible meal was purchased, and it barely looks a day older.

                  Curious observers can watch a live stream of the burger and fries from its current location in a glass cabinet in Snotra House, a hostel in southern Iceland.

                  "The old guy is still there, feeling quite well. It still looks quite good actually," the hostel's owner Siggi Sigurdur told BBC News.

                  "It's a fun thing, of course, but it makes you think about what you are eating. There is no mould, it's only the paper wrapping that looks old."

                  The hostel claims that people come from around the world to visit the burger, and the website receives up to 400,000 hits daily.

                  In their short existence, the burger and fries have moved around a lot.

                  In the first stage of Mr Smarason's investigation into how quickly the food would decay, it was kept in a plastic bag in his garage.

                  When after three years, he detected little change in its composition, he donated the meal to the National Museum of Iceland.

                  A museum specialist eventually decided they were not equipped to preserve food and it was returned to its original owner, according to Snotra House.

                  "I think he was wrong because this hamburger preserves itself," Mr Smarason commented.

                  After a spell in a different hostel in Reykjavík, the meal moved to its current home.

                  Pictures posted on social media sparked discussion of other robust foods that have resisted the ravages of time.

                  "The health teacher in our high school did this, but just left them on a shelf," commented one Twitter user.

                  "He would point out how even after years they didn't grow mould because apparently there weren't even enough nutrients in it for microbes."

                  Mr Smarason is far from the first person to try this experiment with McDonald's food.

                  Famously, Karen Hanrahan bought a hamburger in 1996 and 14 years later was claiming it looked no different than on the day she'd bought it.

                  In 2010, New York photographer Sally Davies bought a Happy Meal and took a picture of it daily for six months.

                  She claimed it didn't rot, smell bad, develop maggots, or indeed show any sign of going off.

                  A YouTube video comparing the decomposition of burgers and fries from a range of restaurants over two months has nearly eight million views.

                  McDonald's commented in 2013 that "in the right environment, our burgers, like most other foods, could decompose", but that without moisture in the environment, they were "unlikely to grow mould or bacteria or decompose".

                  Senior lecturer in food science at the University of Iceland, Bjorn Adalbjornsson, confirmed this explanation, telling AFP that without moisture, "food will simply dry out".

                      Yeah, the never rotting McD’s burger has been known for quite a while. All those preservatives. Another disgusting thing is how half of all food delivery drivers admit to eating customer’s food when they think no one is watching. There is even video (one of those front door cams) of a Door Dash guy drinking out of people’s drinks using the customer’s straw while waiting at the front door.

                            For a control just get a plain In ‘N Out hamburger with no condiments and watch it quickly turn moldy and rot. There have been websites for at least the last decade showing this happen and showing how McD’s does not rot. It comes down to the large quantities of preservatives McD corporate puts in its food.

                            Lastly, McD’s has indeed been lying about its food for decades. The quarter pounder simply does not have a quarter pound of beef. They lie and pretend it does but all they do is soak it in water until the beef/water mixture weights 0.25lbs. The water evaporates during cooking and really there is only 0.18-0.19 lbs of raw beef in their “quarter pounder” and even that includes a bunch of nonbeef additives and extenders so that the actual beef weight is lower still. If we had truth in advertising laws they would have to call it the 0.15 pounder.

                            That the actual starting weight of ground beef is 2/5ths less than advertised should be a crime.

                            • A while back we had Giblets supporting this criminal child abuse, because he is an idiot without any moral compass what so ever, but the facts are just ****ing horrible. I am sure we will see lots of attacking the source and ignoring the facts brought up because that is what hyper partisan ideologues do when they know the facts just aren’t on their side but let the reindeer games begin.
