A simple rule stating that food dropped on the ground is still perfectly edible if it is picked up in five seconds. Ingeniously created by guys for the sole purpose of reducing wasted food and allowing a person that second chance they needed to enjoy their food.
Jason: I dropped my steak on the ground!
Chris: That sucks.
Jason: Nah, five second rule, I saved it.
Chris: Nice.
