As long as I'm not in the middle of doing the dishes or something, I'd eat pizza dropped in the kitchen sink. Scrubbing my sink is part of my routine for doing dishes, so it should be fairly harmless.
Only the sink? You'd forgo the pizza if it fell on any of the other surfaces?
I'm super picky about food safety.
I certainly wouldn't eat anything that fell on a public floor. And I have a giant, messy, muddy, furry, drooly dog, so despite my best effort, my carpet is usually a wreck. And unless I want a mouthful of dog hair, I wouldn't eat anything off my pet. (It's hard enough to keep Newfie hair out of the food I cook, much less food that's been in contact with her.) I suppose that I might eat it off myself if I was freshly showered. Maybe.
Even a well-kept sink tends to have more bacteria than your toilet.
Probably, but I keep a spray bottle of bleach and water to clean my cabinets and my sink gets that treatment too. I'll take my chances.
Yea, even then. I'm just saying, if you're going to be super picky about this shit you should probably apply it in a realistic sense. In a typical home, where typical people use bleach on their sink, the sink is still the second grossest thing in the home after the remote control. The edging that's near universal in combining the sink to the plumbing creates spaces where bacteria are pretty much never touched and so they thrive.
I dropped bread on the floor of a bar yesterday. I was going to save it for when I drank more, but the bartender took it :(
Your bar had bread? Interesting
Most of the bars I frequent have nothing in the way of edibles, but the Roost has a popcorn machine, and the White Horse has cookies and pretzels galore, and free hot dogs
I would love a bar with popcorn!! However we got drunk and made a mess trying to throw popcorn at each other's mouths a few months ago, so I understand why they don't.
it came with my pulled pork mac and cheese. :d
At the very least, the bars I've been to will have peanuts, pretzels, or other finger foods. A lot of them serve food, like hamburgers, as well.
And why am I eating pizza in the bathroom? D:
The pizza is SO good you can't stop eating it, and nature calls :D
That's...a whole new level of nasty.
5-second rule only applies in my own home.
What if you're staying at a hotel? The floor looks vacuumed, the sheets look washed, etc. You're staying for a few days, so it's kind of like a home away from home
idek whats been on the floors of those other places since it was last properly sanitized (if its EVER been properly sanitized, most places dont use enough bleach in the mop water to do anything)
The whole hostess thing....I haven't bought twinkies in years. Maybe since I was 10. Not going to be missed.
The five second food only applies to certain foods.... Like dry ones. Pizza is too porous and sticky and would pick up too much stuff.
is this pizza falling toppings side down or crust side down?
i didn't select any of them. i believe in the five second rule, but not when it comes to pizza. i might eat it if it was the last piece and fell crust-side down on carpet or the floors at my house.
I don't trust anything except my crotch lol and assume that my dogs will have eaten the pizza of of any surface it was dropped on in their vicinity.
Previously indifferent, I haven't had anything of this sort in many, many years but I may have to get some before I can't anymore.
Only my own toilet lid, or that of someone I know quite well. And that convenience store floor is a maybe fifty percent of the time, very conditionally. I fucking love pizza.
i'm a little "ehh" on the carpet since now i'm starting to think of like carpet fuzz on my pizza, but whatever.
i dont like sweets, so i'm indifferent on the hostess stuff.
The Hostess/Merita question has me of two minds. On the one hand, the unions are right to strike for being asked to take another pay cut and lose more benefits while the executives lose nothing. I also believe that their petition to liquidate their assets should be denied. The bankruptcy they're filing for is designed to pad the pockets of the board members and completely fuck over the share holders.
On the other hand, I haven't bought anything Merita/Little Debbie in years because of the non-food bullshit they put in their products. Also, I have never eaten a Twinkie. All of that said, it is nigh unlikely that those products will disappear, they'll just be made by whichever food-like substance manufacturer buys the patents/formulas of those items should they be allowed to liquidate.
you know little debbie and tastykakes are ready to buy all that shit up.
For Hostess, I'd be sad but only for my husband. I hate their stuff, but he loves it and buys it in 7-11s whenever we visit the US. He'll not be pleased to be deprived of raspberry zingers.
The only thing I ever eat that's made by Hostess is those apple pies, and I love those dammit. :/
Your own naked crotch (for some reason, you're eating pizza naked)
Wait, this counts as a floor?? Good deal.
Like a floor, I'm sure someone's nailed it by now
my love for fruit pies rivals that of bobby hills
Only my own carpet and kitchen sink, though.
Years ago, drunk after a night barhopping, I bought a piece of pizza and dropped it immediately on the floor. The guy in line behind me yelled "five second rule" and I picked it up. Totally ate that whole slice.
My crotch is always clean, so...
Can I eat off it? I'll wash my hands first
I'd eat it off of pretty much any dry surface in my own home. But in any public place, ehhhhh
Basically the only place I wouldn't retrieve the pizza from is some kind of publicly used floor (Market, theater, bar, etc.,) pavement is fine as long as it's pavement right in front of my own house like the driveway or something.
I will be ridiculously sad if Hostess goes out of business, mostly for all the people who'll lose their jobs, but I'll also miss their products a little.
Aww, I was hoping to make twinkie armor in anticipation of the third world war three.
did the pizza fall crust down or topping down?
So many people will happily eat their own crotch pizza, it makes me laugh.
While I'm sad to see Hostess go, I understand why.
