A wholly untrue rule that states that if your food drops to the floor/ground and has contact for less than five seconds, you can simply pick it up and eat it without risk of sickness. This is untrue, of course. Bacteria covers your food upon contact, it doesn't take five seconds for them to attach.
Guy 1:Dude, are you gonna eat that?
Guy 1:But it fell on the floor...
Guy 2:But it wasn't there for five seconds..so according to the Five Second Rule..it's all good.
