    Default 5 Second Rule

    The five-second rule is a popular polite fiction regarding the eating of food that has fallen to the floor or ground. The origins of the rule are unknown. The substance of the rule is that if food falls on the ground, it may be safely eaten as long as it is picked up within five seconds.
    There are many variations on the rule. Sometimes the time limit is modified so that it is known variously as the "three-second rule", "seven-second rule", and "five-minute rule", among others. In some variations, the person picking up the food arbitrarily extends the time limit based on the actual amount of time required to retrieve the food. This also can vary based on the surface on which the food was dropped. In Russia the rule is formulated as simple as "Promptly picked up is not considered fallen".

    I copied and pasted the info above and I am wondering, do you believe in the "5 Second Rule" or do you think once a piece of food falls its, "trash"

    Also, do you eat food off the ground or if you drop food, just leave it there or throw it away.

    I go by the 1 day rule. I wouldn't dare throw food away; I can send the food to some kid in Africa and have it be the good deed for the day.

    I do have question about the five second rule. Does it apply to only the floor, or liquid based substances as well? If I drop my chicken in the toilet and get it before five seconds, is it clean?

    I believe in the five second rule, but only apply it with food that I actually enjoy. It also depends on the surface. If it falls somewhere slimy or some variation there of, then I just pick it up and throw it away.

    If it's dry food like a cookie, cracker or something like that, then I MIGHT eat it. If it's moist or tacky food like BBQ chicken or cheese, then no.

    If I'm serving someone else then it depends on whether or not I like them.

    If I drop the food on a surface with a lot of bacteria such as school grounds, I pick it up and throw it away.
    I love wafers!

    It depends on the surface it falls on. I keep my floors clean, but I don't usually take my shoes off, so no, I wouldn't. Now...carpet is different. If I drop something dry on the carpet I'll eat it, because I vacuum a lot. A dirty floor irritates me to no end. If I won't take my shoes off in your house, it's because I think your house is dirty.

    I'm not at my own place, which is why I don't take my shoes off. My apartment is usually relatively clean, if disorganized.

    Depends. If it's something nasties will stick to, then no I'm not eating it. And I'm probably not picking it up off the floor until I'm done eating and can use my napkin, either.

    Only applies at home, or a friend's home that I know is clean.

    I'll admit - I've had 'that moment' a few times in the past. You know 'the moment' - where you drop something you really, really wanted, and will stand there eying it, trying to decide if you should or shouldn't pick it up.
    Even his enemies have him as their emergency contact.
    He's a lover, not a fighter.
    But, he is also a fighter, so don't get any ideas

    It depends. I don't eat off of the sidewalk, but if food falls on the counter I usually pick it up. But not after like, 10 seconds. I dunno. I usually don't pick up food anyway...

    I enjoy eating all my food off the floor using only my tongue, drinks as well. The gravel, dust, bacteria adds a kick to the flavor. It also helps me stay flexible.

    If I drop food on the floor, I brush it off and in my mouth it goes! Or the dogs get it. Whatever I feel like.
    It's so fun to eat food off the floor in front of my friends. One of them will throw some candy at me and I'll totally miss it and they'll be all, "Oh my gosh! Sorry!" Then I'll just eat it off the floor and they totally freak out. So fun to watch. :3

    Same. God knows what's on the floor that could get on your food. Same with hands, which is why I always thoroughly wash my hands before eating.
    The dog is usually there to get it anyway ._.

    I am well aware of how nasty the human body is.

    But, you need to see the bombshell that is my apartment so you will know why I will NEVER eat anything that made contact with the floor.

    Hell, I rarely take off my shoes unless my feet are on the (new) furniture.

    I now know what hell sounds like; I recommend a tactical nuclear strike on my position. Tell my family I love them.

    If its dry food and the floor isnt that dirty.... I'll quickly pick it up and eat it.
    But thats only if its in my house... my floors.

    If not, ew. I'll just throw it away.

    It's more like a .02 MS rule. That's like how much time you have before the bacteria on a floor will spread to the food.

    I personally have never eaten anything off the floor.

    Food on the floor, for flavor!
    Sure Wish I had a little dvd player on my forklift at work... no, wait, that would be dangerous.

    I've only ever heard of the "3 second rule"... O_o;

    Seeing as how I live in a country where people don't wear shoes indoors. And considering the fact that my mum is a complete clean-freak, and if the food I dropped was something dry, then yes I would eat it.

    Other than that, no.
