You're invited to a luxurious dinner. The main event, foie gras, is placed in front of you. As you slice into this fowl, your knife slips, exerting a force onto this piece which pushes it onto the ground. Do you go for it?

In general, do you follow the five second rule? Do you push it?

Even though I know the 5 second rule is bullshit as the transfer of dirt/bacteria happen as soon as it hits the floor. yes, i still pick it up and eat it (unless its a really sticky food and its outside/gross on the floor). Bit of dirt never hurt anyone, its good for the immune system

oh and that dish is pretty fvcked up tbh

that gooseswam in a river of its own piss and shit, only to peroidically emerge to lay in dirt. That liver filtered all the garbage it put through its body and that food was probably dropped on the floor in the ******* anyway.

Yes

from geese that have been force fed so that their livers swell

I would not eat any meat that fell onto the ground because it's wet or sticky or whatever and would grab all the germs

not if it's wet. if it's a wet piece of food then germs and dirt and hairs stick to it pretty much the second it hits the ground.


if it's dry then usually it's fine

i have no interest in bourgeois garbage food.

5 second rule really depends on the location the food is dropped and your knowledge of the cleanliness of the floor.

and the type of food.

anything wet = never eat. it's probably got hair and shit stuck to it.

dry snacks = inspect for hair. blow it off and eat it.

5 second rule? Make that the 5 minute rule. Brush off whatever dust and dirt your food has accumulated and eat the damn stuff.
I have nothing important to say

I can handle foie gras in small doses. It's a very intense flavor.

I would not eat it if it fell on the ground, but would eat it if it was still on the table.

...modes and scales are still useless.

The force that pushes it onto the ground isn't a result of the knife, but of gravity.

But anyway, the 5 second rule sounds like some huge bullshit to me.

Of course I'd eat it. I've never had foie gras before. If it had stuff stuck to it I'd just cut that part off and eat the rest.

I remember in my formative years when I was out with a girl I quite fancied and I confused the 3 date rule with the 5 second rule...

If I'm being served foie gras in the first place, obviously there is some intense social judgment going on (out with some professional type people, etc.) so I'd just play it off like it never happened.

Let it lie. My attitude is this meal, fancy as it is, is probably worth a lot more to me than a dusty piece of goose liver.

The more important question is would it be a foie gras faux pas?
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
#32
If it can't be jabbed with a fork and/or grasped by a bone sticking out of it it's not worth eating anyway, so no.

depends on the food and floor really

im usually the guy that makes people go 'duuude DONT' when he picks up the food from the sketch floor or drinks the soda thats been sitting opened for a month but even i have my standards

Depends.. If it's meat I will just grill that shit again, and eat that shit. Last time I was at my doctor was 18 years ago.

It depends how badly I want the item and the social setting.

I would never do it in front of a lady or events where I have to dress up

On an average day though, dry foods are fine. Moist foods can be wiped off and its still cool.

Unless its carpet and/or a place where I know pets exist

No because it is a three second rule not a five second rule.

I don't like foie gras. Taste or the production of it.


now if it was some steak or fish, I'd simply ask for something quick as a replacement, ie a salad and eat that instead of the nice bit of meat as a kind of punishment (even though I like salad)

there's also a good chance the restaurant would just replace the dish free or not charge me for giving me slippery food on a badly designed plate & table.


at home, I'd either brush the food clean or if it rolled in anything gross, throw it away and eat something else.

I spent a couple of weeks and a couple of thousand Euros in Paris failing to find a decent meal. Their cuisine, and their attitude towards it, is bullshit.

Foie gras is the quintessential food of the pretentious and privileged.
