    Five Second Rule


    New research finds that there is some truth to the so-called "five-second rule" -- the belief that food is safe to eat if picked up from the floor in under five seconds.
    Is the mythical "five-second rule" actually real? - CBS News

    My Mom taught me this rule at a very early age.

    LOL! Good advice, Baroness!

    The subject at hand pertains to one of Murphy's laws:

    "The odds of a chocolate sundae landing upright is in direct proportion to the color of the carpet".

    Those scientists must have been really bored. Most of the time I won't eat anything that falls on the floor, but I have two dogs that shed a lot and they normally get to what I drop before I do!

    Same here mate That rule would depend a lot on the condition of the floor.

    My wife's hair is always falling out, she has so much of it. I am clumsy, I drop stuff all the time. Money is tight, I can't afford to be replacing stuff all the time just because Im dropping it. I'm used to eating stuff off the floor.
    I say it ain't worth eating if it doesn't have hair on it.
