I'm not really from here
My backyard backs up to a corn field. I live in Orville Redenbacher's home state. I have no idea how long an ear of corn can last before, you know, things fall apart.
My son has to build a grasshopper for a science project. (Each student has to research an insect, write a report and build a model). We were thinking of using an ear of corn to make the grasshopper but my daughter reminded me that it will sit in a display case for "a while." I have no idea how long that grasshopper would survive on display before it began to deteriorate. I feel like I should know.
Looks like we're going with Plan B. Or C.
