This is a video of a McDonald's cheeseburger (no word on with or without onions) being dipped in hydrochloric acid. Hydrochloric acid is formed in the stomach and makes up about 0.5% of food-dissolving gastric acid. The other 99.5%? Tiny warriors with swords and axes chopping the food into smaller and smaller pieces. Plus, sometimes, a puke wizard.
"As you're watching me, churning away in your stomach is acid which is one of the first stages in which food is broken down into usable components to give you energy or to make you fat," our favorite Einstein-look-a-like Martyn Poliakoff, a chemist at the university, says in the video.
You know what else I have in my stomach? "Penises?" GOOD ONE. I was going to say a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit. Plus a daily vitamin, a cup of chocolate milk, and a cup of coffee. "And?" That's it. "AND?" Fine, and two six-packs of those little powdered donuts. "And?" A Snickers bar. "AND?" "Another, king-size Snickers bar." "And?" A Snickers ice cream bar. "That it?" And a couple LEGO bricks.
Keep going for the delicious video.
Thanks to GrizzlyDave, who may or may not be a bear (in my mind he totally is though because it would be cool to have a bear reader).
