:) ok the 5 second rule is where if some fool falls on the floor if you pick it up in less then 5 seconds you can still eat it. Do you do this or once something hits the floor it's gone to you?

When I drop my food on the floor, I imagine all the dust and dirt that must have been on that spot. So I would have to say no, dropped food is out of bounds for me.

it depends on the food. if its something mushy or sticky then no...but if dry like a biscuit then i would still eat it if i manage to pick it up within 5 seconds

There's bacteria on your hand from touching random crap >.> I guess not as dirty as your floor, but still. And your body is made to deal with foreign invaders anyways XD

That said, I don't follow it depending on the floor and the food. Like if I know it's a really gross surface that it fell on, I wouldn't eat it. But if it was like a candy or a gummy, I'd eat it anyways. But if it was some mushy, wet stuff, I wouldn't eat it anyways.

Lolz, I always pick up stuff from the floor in my room after I drop it. Like when I'm snacking away on gummy candy or a cookie and I drop it on the floor, I'll eat it. Mine's probably close to 10 seconds at least. Dunno. Not like I really time it!

I depends on what it is and where it drops...
For example if it drops on my floor and hard candy sure...
but i wont eat it if its a steak and drops on the retaruant floor!

be pessimistic so that youll never be disapointed and will live a happy life.

I'll eat anything for which the fall has left no visible effects. It's not good to be too fastidious about things like this, your immune system needs practice or it gets weak and may even start misbehaving.

i'll never pick any food up once it's dropped. i'll throw it away even if it's very nice. i rather spend money and buy it again.

If I drop a potato chip in my room, I'll eat it. On the kitchen floor or outdoors then no.

One time I placed a bowl of popcorn on the keyboard tray of my desk. I accidently nudged the tray and the bowl fell spilling popcorn all over the carpet floor runner. I ate the popcorn then vaccuming the seeds afterwards. I never got sick from eating that popcorn.
