Do you eat food after you drop it on the floor?
Sure we hear about this 10-second rule, but... really....?

I've decided it isn't so much how long the object has been on the floor, but an equation of how much I want whatever it is I have dropped + a little bit the ooey-gooeyness of the object.

A piece of gum? Forget it - history.
A brownie? hmmm...depends on the deliciousness level.
An M&M? Oh yeah, we are good to go...that hard candy shell is a sure-fire protectant against all things germified.

I think you should include in the poll food that falls onto the table or your lap.

OHHHHHHH! M&M's off the floor...reminds me of the good old days. How about M&M's that are on the floor and have rolled under other people's doors? Then they're even better, right?

depends on the FLOOR!!! At work, not a chance. At home, depends on when I mopped last ('cause let's face it, nobody else mops the floor), in public, no way, etc etc.

Today? Cupcake, face down on my kitchen floor that I haven't mopped in...well, let's just say a bit. I picked that baby up and only briefly checked for visible hair or what have you. Dang good cupcake and dang good choice I believe.
