The 5-Second Ruling

Ever since the Mythbusters tested the 5-Second Rule (if it's okay to eat something that fell on the floor if you get it within 5 seconds), I decided my buddy and Mythbuster extraordinaire, Adam Savage, would be my go to guy whenever I needed a ruling.

So occasionally I will text him with something stupid like "I just dropped a bagel, cream-cheese side up. 5 second rule?"

I'm only writing about this because something just reminded me of my favorite exchange from last Christmas Eve:

Me: "I need a 5 Second ruling: fresh mozzarella!"
Adam: "You eat that shit right now."

And you know I ate it. I had no choice, a ruling's a ruling. It's okay, I trust him.

Although, now that I think about it, he's actually never told me to NOT eat something off the floor...
