from the Boer War? This guy reviews any and all MREs. And I can't stop watching
Nope. No way.
I'm pretty sure I've had spam that old, but how would you know?
Well now I reckon that would depend on how hungry I was and how far I was from anything else to eat.
Most I've had is 20 year old modern MREs.
I have a bottle of beer I brewed nearly thirty years ago to try one of these days. It has a lot of hops so it should be fine.
And made these. The kids actually asked about making more, they kind of liked them.
Imagine how much lead it has soaked into it from the old style solder joints on the ends
You could probably tell by the smell if it was okay. I had not thought about the lead in the solder joint so I will join in the no’s.
I like the part at the end where he says; "And I didn't even get the sweats..."
A friend of mine bought a single beer in 1996... some sort of “tequila beer” that has a worm in it. He got it in Mexico and brought it home with him. He brought it on a camping trip that year, and was willing to give it away to anyone who would drink it. He got no takers.
That camping trip was an annual event for us up until about 5 years ago, and he continued to bring that same beer every year, along with the same offer. No takers. Ever.
We don’t do the camping trip any more, but he still has that beer in the fridge in his garage. So it’s at least 22 years old now. I don’t know if the worm is still visible in it or not. It might have dissolved by now. I can’t imagine that anyone could drink it without getting sick.
I've had 20 year old pickles from my grandma's cellar. Not sure about the meat though.
Mix it with some fresh bear meat for breakfast sausage. Yum.
Definite no. Wtf?
I'll do it.... what do I get? how much do I havta eat? I figure if I cook it up hot enough... all it'll do is taste bad.
I remember reading a ww1 memoir, in which the author made mention of what they called “monkey meat”, which was tins of meat left over from the boer war. It was deemed unpalatable in 1914 lol.
One time a buddy invited me to sit out a snowstorm in his parents basement.
Was about 1991 I think.
We were sitting at his dads bar, which was decked out with his granddads ww1 souvenirs, watching my buddies collection of stones footage, drinking whisky.
We ran out of cigarettes.
There were two packs on the shelve amid pictures and mortar rounds,
Govt issued smokes from 1918.
If I remember correctly they were in metal tins, unsealed.
Filter less and brown from age.
We smoked them.
I've eaten C rations that were 20+ years old, but that was long ago. the stuff in the Boer war tin.... no way. historically it was considered pretty vile even when it was fresh. I 'spose if you were really starving that would be another thing. but ya, the lead & tin from that can is all through that "meat"... ish, you eat that, most of that metal stays with you
There's a Stephen King short story about a doctor who gets stranded on a remote island with no supplies, and resorts to self-cannibalism.
I'd try the Boer War emergency rations before I did that.
My goodness, I find this fascinating and I am not really sure why
I don't eat meat after it's been sitting in the fridge for more than a couple days.
There's no way I would eat that or even open that can.
Could not find a link, but I think I've heard that when they found a frozen mammoth in the tundra of Siberia, the local people did eat all the meat before the scientists got to examine it...?
