Ok... If your eating something and you drop it on the floor, by the ten second rule it's ok to eat it if you pick it up before you count to ten. I think it should be law. Anyone else follow the ten second rule?

Does the 10 second rule just apply to food?

Jay
January 10th, 2004, 22:48
Yes.

Why does it have to apply to only food?

If you dip your finger into a vat of acid, is it any safer at 10 seconds, than it would be at 3, or 4, or 20 ?

Because if I drop a CD for 10 minutes and it still plays I'm going to keep it.

No, it's not any safer at 3, 4, or 20. But if I drop a cookie and leave it for 25 years before I eat it's a lot more dangerous than 10 seconds. I gotta draw the line somewhere. Why not ten? It's a nice round number.

Are you telling me that you are such a slob that a cookie would lay in your floor for 25 years before you would notice it?

Jay

You should know. You live with me.

Actually, it's been proven that the amount of germs picked up from the ground by dry food increases only slightly between 0 minutes and 5 hours.

Jay
January 11th, 2004, 04:22
Perhaps we should have a five hour rule then... heh

The ten second rule is a belief. Those who believe it.

we used the ten second rule at hungry jack's (fast food)
unless it was a frozen meat patty or frozen chips - in which case it doesn't matter how long its been there - because it is going to be cooked at a very high temperature anyway that will kill any germs

Jay

Hungry Jack... isn't that the same thing as a Burger King?

Ten seconds eh? I thought it was changed to the 13 second rule, or was it 20?

M.H.A.Q.S.
January 13th, 2004, 07:10
10 20 30 whatever. if you believe it is good to eat does not mean it is not invaded by germs.

Zidane

What if you drop in in a scientific Bacteria Growing experiment? does the 10 second rule still apply? (there are billions of bacteria in there, most of them are deadly)

donkeyknob

yeah but the air created by when the cookie drops will knock the fuckers outta the way

Not Owned. Rivalry_by_Imitation is a girl so she doesn&#39;t need an erection. She needs a man who has one. That someone is me. Thank you for playing.

:blink:

If anything the 10 second rule applies to how fast I can give a man an erection, and why don&#39;t I get to pick who I want to keep? or not keep? As the case may be&#33;

Jay
