We’ve all heard the story. This brave person is actually using the scientific method to see if it’s true, and try figure out why. There are eight different samples for this test, in order to find out whether it’s the beef, the bun, the size, or the storage environment, or if it’s all a load of bunk. We’ll have to wait to see the results, though (via thedailywhat).
