I assumed everyone knew this.

Apparently that is not the case.

My dad used to say, if you can get it past your nose, it’s probably all right… Except meat.

About thirty minutes ago I was laughing after finding an expiration date on a jar of honey.

For those unaware, honey is safe even after thousands of years, it doesn't go bad.

Bottled water expiration dates give me a chuckle.

I would say the same is true for meat. Where is the exception? Parasites?

I don’t see expiration dates on my wine and whiskey bottles.

Diet Soda does go bad (tasting) as whatever the fake stuff is inside these gets less fake sugary tasting and more fake bitter tasting over time, and those dates are pretty accurate.

I've witnessed other weird stuff with them that I can't even explain. Had some cans of Diet Coke or Coke Zero that due to not traveling during the pandemic were almost 2 years old when I eventually saw them again.

Somehow the contents of the sealed cans evaporated, and they were only about 1/2 full, you could feel the weight difference and approximate level just by picking up the still sealed can. No sign of leaks, and it happened to several cans. They probably experienced indoor temperature ranges from about 50 to 100 as the seasons changed during that time.

Wow, I've had plastic bottles of diet do this over long times but I haven't had cans in so long that I don't remember if I've experienced this. Weird.

Bottled water will go bad, I know that from personal experience.

The plastic used for the bottles is not impervious to the water content. PETE will absorb water from the soda or liquid over time. It can then evaporate from the exterior of the bottle. After a year or more the loss can be visible. For some liquids they will line the interior of the bottle with a different plastic that doesn't transfer water. But that adds to the manufacturing expense, they don't do that for many liquids.

My favorite is 250 million year old sea salt having an expiration date in a year or two. Lol

I had left a new unopened can of Pepsi, just regular Pepsi, on a shelf in my office pre-pandemic. I went in 12+ months or whatever later and probably half had leaked out through the bottom leaving a VERY sticky coating on the shelf. Luckily, a nearby box of tissues had sacrificed itself to save it from going much farther.

I've found that unopened bottles of water will collapse over time as the contents escape without leaking, as we define it.

I've had cans of soda that have had contents disappear.

Usually the CO2 is gone as well, so shaking the can has never revealed the source of the leak.

I've always thought there was a very, very small break in the seal at the top, and the pressure inside forced some evaporation until the pressure was equalized.

On the other hand, there's no mystery as to why a can of soda, left in the freezer, forgotten, does what it does.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Not sure why but I've yet to find an expiration date on any of those boxes of wine we use to refill bottles pre party. Folks seem happy enough when they leave and if you've ever wondered what gives Jonnie Walker Blue that tint...
