I agree, it's crazy how long things can last in cans. I have some canned clams that'll be around two years from now.
It's insane. Like little aluminum time capsules.
Also, coins. I had a penny the other day that's been in use since the thirties. EIGHTY YEARS AGO it was minted and since then has been touched and used by millions of people the nation over. Like a tiny time capsule...
Whoa, Anonymous, that coin may have been handled BY NAZIS. Not like, American History X Nazis, but, like, "hey, that Charles Lindbergh guy has some really swell ideas about America and its involvement in the war" Nazis. WHOA.
