does it work on a sliding scale where a lower temp can be the equiv of Age at a higher frozen temp? like F=ma F can remain constant by altering either M or A accordingly.

is there one for Temp and Time???
You remind me so much of Bill Nye the Science Guy.

Meaning no offense, I liked his show.

I think you may be misunderstanding me just a teensy bit. I never said I would serve 10 year old chicken. I never said I would eat 10 year old chicken. I wouldn't. I only was speaking from a safety standpoint. My only point is that eating chicken that has been properly stored for 10 years in the freezer will not, on its own, make you sick. Will it make for a delicious meal? Who knows, but I doubt it. Will it make you sick? Nope.

Point well taken.
Just look at what happened to Ted Williams
Ted Williams Frozen In Two Pieces, Meant To Be Frozen In Time; Head Decapitated, Cracked, DNA Missing - CBS News

Pay special attention to the fourth paragraph.

Thought I would let you all know that I cooked the chicken in question and it was fine. After thawing I checked it and it looked fine. I cooked by a new recipe that was very spicy (right now I can't remember the name)but anyway it was good. And the main thing was we didn't get sick afterward.Thanks for all your advice. Faye

Don't eat it. When in doubt, throw it out. It's only chicken anyway. It's not steaks or Filet Mignon.
