Vacuum sealing

does vacuum sealed food stay good indefinitely?

Yes, until you activate it.

what do you mean by until i activate it? doesn’t activating food consume it?

Vacuum sealing food creates a vacuum sealed item that isn’t actually food. That item will keep forever until you activate it, at which point it becomes a food item that will only keep for so long. Canning works the same way.

oh i see, got it. that’s pretty clever!

It stays fresh unless you open it or if the planet you inhabit ends up getting sucked into a black hole.

I hate it when that happens.
