Goner Message Board / Food & Drink / 10 second rule
Posted: Mar 4, 2006 11:29 pm
does it apply to a waffle that lands buttered face down?

because i don't think it does...

yeah i probably shouldn't have eaten that waffle...

I totally believe in the ten second rule. Germs are over-rated.
You'll be awright.

Germs are no big deal, I'm with you.

My friend ate a slice of bacon off the floor of a diner recently and lived. In the same meal he sneezed and got snot all over his shirt. It was a fun brunch.

i haven't started sneezing yet...just a chalky tase in my mouth...does dirt taste chalky?

I believe there's a governmental conspiracy about germs...

Germs are AWESOME! I firmly believe in the benefits of germs. You ever notice how clean-freaks are always sick? It's 'cause their immune systems aren't used to battling the little microbes that the rest of us so readily embrace.

I don't know if I would eat a buttered-side-down waffle though. It seems like it would pick up too much grit.

depends where it lands. if in your own house, which you know to be fairly clean, go for it. if it landed on my floor, it would probably have a large dust bunny attached to it, and I would most definitely deposit it in the trash.

Or just scrape some of the butter off...

You gotta eat a pound of dirt before you die.

I'm on my 11th.

10 seconds is too long for awaffle with butter...esp. if you have pets that will track gawd knows in there. Maybe 2 secs?

As soon as butter side down hits the ground it's trash. 2 seconds isn't much different from 5 minutes. I might eat dirt, but that's just disgusting.

too late...i'm fine though

Food poisoning takes 24 hous to settle in, usually.

Alisa's a mom, so she knows what she's talking about. Myself, I find the rule is easily modified by how hungry and/or late I am.
Posted: Mar 5, 2006 6:06 pm
there wasn't too much butter n the waffle...it was mostly down in the little squares...and i didn't see any dirt or dust or anything so thats why i ate it.

how hungry and/or late I am.
or how many people are around...

Like when George Costanza took the eclair out of the trash.

there is this dude that comes into the computer lab at school and before he touches the cpu he hoses and wipes it down with disinfectant. mouse, keyboard and all. that's about as funny as seeing those germ freaks on the bus wearing face masks. then again you've got tons of snot nosed kids slobbering all over the place and the homeless pissing themselves. same goes for the bus....

I love the people that spray down the seats and handles at the gym. So useless.

consult Leviticus on
rules for dining. Thing
is, if your a desert
dweller, 5000 years
you were conscious
of which hand to wipe your
ass with.
these days I use a hand
sanitizer after eaploring
the mind of a crustie or
the crack of my ass.
Plus I dumpster dive
but alweays wash those half
rotten vegies before I grill'm
on the barbie.
