Experimenting with French fries

Hey everybody!

A few weeks back, my anti fast-food group performed an experiment to find out just how trashy fast-food is. We planned to do this by comparing the rotting periods between McDonald's fries and home cooked fries.

We basically purchased one large McDonald's fries and placed it in a glass jar. The same was done with the home cooked fries, which were made by deep frying some sliced potato in oil. Both jars were placed in the same environment. The results of this experiment were shocking!

This is what the home-cooked fries looked like in just 5 days!

The home cooked fries turned black! There was fungus and mould all over. Brown fluid was oozing out of the fries. This is a sure sign of rotting.  
This is what the McDonald's fries looked like after 3 weeks!

There was no sign of rotting at all! The fries were perfectly in-tact and looked good enough to eat. 

These results are scary. I mean what the hell does McDonald’s put in these fries?

There probably must be a lot of concentrated preservatives and chemicals in these fries. That’s the only way one can prevent the natural process of rotting. To think that some of us eat these fries quite often... Just imagine these “Freak of Nature” chemicals lingering inside your body...

I found these really interesting poems on Physics! 
Schroedinger's cat 
I have been reading of Schroedinger's cat
But none of my cats are at all like that.
This unusual animal (so it is said)
Is simultaneously live and dead!
What I don't understand is just why he
Can't be one or other, unquestionably.
My future now hangs in between eigenstates.
In one I'm enlightened, the other I ain't.
If you understand, then show me the way
And rescue my psyche from quantum decay.
But if this queer thing has perplexed even you,
Then I will and won't see you in Schroedinger's zoo.
There once was a fellow named Blight
Whose speed was much faster than light.
He sat off one day
In a relative way
and returned on the previous night. 
We've heard of that fellow named Blight,
And his trip on that fabulous night,
But his increasing mass
Would have soon proved so vast
He'd have been a most *singular* sight!
