Can Lump go stale?

Not sure if calling it stale is the proper term to use but I ask....can lump go bad over time? If so what is the shelf life and what happens when it does go bad? Does it burn weaker or smell different or deteriorate into smaller pieces over time?
I have four bags of lump from Feb 2012 and I'm wondering if its still good.
Thanks

    lump is close to pure carbon. No matter haw long it sits in your shed or cellar it ain't gonna go bad.
  • Yeah, but just save it to make stuffing with. it's delicious :))

  • I'm hoping to discover the lump at the bottom of my hoard pile turned to diamonds.

    I take my expired lump, put it in my diamond press and make jewels.  Makes me popular with SWMBO.

  • Thanksgiving is over up here so no lump stuffing for us.
  • Maybe Santa can use it for stocking stuffers for naughty children?
