They have recovered canned foods from sunken WWII subs/boats which at over 60 years old the food stuffs tested negative for any sort of harmful bacteria... it might taste is another story

Like Smith, my wife and I recently ate some canned pears from 97 or 98...they were canned with cinnamon and honestly were delicious.
Now when asked when I think things will change I answer "The next time Thomas (aka the fed) robs Peter (aka the 53%) to pay Paul (aka the 47%) and Peter pulls a gun...things will change"
