Fruit and Vegetable Decomposition Time-lapse

74 days with 1 picture every 40 minutes then played back at 30 frames per second gets you this cool clip. There's a surprise at the end.... remember, potatoes ( perennial Solanum tuberosum ) are roots.
Enjoy!

  • Fruit and vegetables rot.

    In other news, the sky is blue.

    What he said. Once you move out of momma's basement and get your own fridge, if you're a lazy cunt like me, you will see this for yourself. It will no longer be "cool", "hip" or "interesting".

    • @passive_observer The trick is to wait until you get a good rot going on, with plenty of "fur". Then you don't feel so bad about throwing it out and wasting food/money.

      I like to cook the potatoes after they've sprouted. It's fun to chop off the roots and excise the deadly green patches, laden with solanine.

      Proving supermarket "use by" dates to be bunk is a hobby of mine. I buy the discounted food which has reached its sell by date, then leave it to brew in the fridge for a couple more days.

      It's the green thing to do, saving the planet one pie at a time.

    • @passive_observer Holy shit Batman! I never knew that about spuds! I've got a nice terrarium of redskin spuds in the veggie bin in the fridge now! I'll remember that..."poisonous alkaloid".

  • I'm a single guy, so I can open up my refrigerator and see this anyday.

    Looks like you can still make a good soup out of it.....

  • That'd make a nice soup, just add in some water and simmer for ummmm... 74 days.

  • The garlic held its own pretty good too.
    There's this documentary about decay. They left stuff to decay basically. What I found interesting was that an unopened packet of meat. Hamburgers or something, produced flies inside, yet it was hermetically sealed and gas built up over time and finally burst the packet open. But how did the flies get in there before it burst? Try to figure out that one while frying up your burgers!
