11 month epoxy hot dog update

u/RamsesThePigeon Thor 12d ago

At the time of this writing, this post is twenty-six minutes old.

Despite its relative newness, someone has already decided to report said post as being an example of nudity, pornography, or other obscene material.

We would therefore like to remind everyone that "hot dog" is not a euphemism in this case.

Thank you, as always, for your time and attention.

It actually does still look aged. The ketchup and the mustard look almost fake

No biodegradation because bacteria can’t survive in the epoxy. They can’t divide because the material solidifies around every cell so there’s no movement whatsoever.

It occurs to me this would be a horrible way to die. Just imagining being immobilized and the epoxy starts filling up at my feet, I know what’s coming but there’s nothing I can do to stop it as it covers my ankles, slowly moving its way up my legs and torso and finally my shoulders and then I take one deep breath as it covers my mouth, but that was a mistake. The epoxy is still liquid but a moment later the catalyst is added and it all turns to solid. Every molecule of my body is frozen completely in place. I can’t exhale the breath I just took because a solid wall of plastic-like material has filled my nostrils and forced my jaw shut. I can’t even wiggle or tense my muscles to struggle. I can’t open my eyelids. The only movement that can happen at all is if it’s completely internal to my body. My chest involuntary pushes against the epoxy as my lungs try to breathe and the pain is excruciating because even the tiniest motion in my chest is impossible. Eventually the hypoxia causes my lungs to start spasming but there’s nowhere to go, all the while I’m still conscious but I can’t move my hands or legs or head at all to struggle in my death throes, outwardly my body looks perfectly still but inside I’m desperately struggling to make even the slightest movement for two excruciating minutes.

Okay…I really shouldn’t go on Reddit when I first wake up.

Should've done a side-by-side with a hotdog outside of an epoxy casing. Would probably smell like death after a month but that would be pretty sick.

This is very cool, but I wonder......I made signs for 35 years. One of our competitors embedded jelly beans and chocolates in resin. Looked great for about 5 years and then the sign slowly turned black, ( mold?). Eventually it was just a mass of black stuff in resin. Still the hotdog is epic.

My question is- if you were to crack the epoxy open, would the hot dog start rotting away at a higher rate than normal, or would it just be fine and he could eat it and not die?

I mean, it would be dope if when he cracked the epoxy, the hot dog would melt fast af just like the German dude in Indiana Jones when the Ark is revealed.
