5 Second Rule Changed


Whud up? - 14 year old me
I never used the 5 second rule anyways. It's disgusting. If it drops on the floor, THROW IT AWAY!

I never really followed the five second rule either. Unless the floor was REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY clean.

Which was never.

Awesome. That's good to know for all the time's I broke the 5 second rule. :squidx: Of course, it's not people should take that long to pick something up, either.

Didn't they find that out like a year ago on Mythbusters?
Well since it's official now I'll start eating food I drop on the ground within five seconds :devil:

5 seconds in a non-flushed public toilet rule! :devil:

I don't think you should eat off the ground...


SpongeMario! :P
we don't use a second rule,we just pick up the food off the ground,throw it away,and get another one. O_o

although I used the 2 second rule,if I dropped something,i would pick it up and eat it quickly before anyone notices.

what you can do is put a clean towel on the ground below you when you eat,in that way,if you drop a peice of food,it'll be okay to pick it up again and eat it up to over five minutes.
