This Is What Happens When You Pour Sulfuric Acid On A Big Mac

A few years ago, we wrote about what would happen to a McDonald’s cheeseburger dunked into hydrochloric acid. YouTube channel Let’s Melt This decided to conduct a similar, but different, experiment to see what would happen if you poured sulfuric acid on a McDonald’s Big Mac.

Unlike the previous news video, this one’s an up-close look with a time lapse so you can see exactly what happens to the burger while the acid works its magic. The half hour process is sped up into a two minute time lapse.

Notice how hydrochloric acid will turn a cheeseburger into a black goo, while sulfuric acid will cook a Big Mac from the outside… before it turns everything to goo. Like our previous post about the Big Mac getting doused in molten copper, there’s something powerful and unyielding in that Big Mac bun.

Check out the eye-opening video.

Time-lapse Shows How Burgers Age in One Month

Burger-Mold-Timelapse

Burgers were meant to be enjoyed instantaneously. We’re pretty sure that’s what Jesus told the Earl of Hamburger when he handed him the world’s first double-bacon cheeseburger. However, if you do decide to save your burger for a rainy day, you need to know how much time you have to eat it before it goes bad.

BuzzFeed decided to do an experiment over the course of 30 days. They took seven burgers (McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, Jack in the Box, Carl’s Jr., In-N-Out and Umami Burger) and sealed each one in a glass jar, then documented the aging process via time-lapse photography.

As you can see, some burgers began to mold and decay rather quickly. Others, however, remained more or less the same. That can’t be good, right?

Check out the video below and see for yourself which burgers are made with fresher ingredients than the others. We recommend doing so on an empty stomach.
