I would!

After all; what’s more sterile than an old greasy paper bag in a trash can.

#3 Posted by Sless (64 posts) -

On the bombcast, they asked what I think is this most important question: is there any garbage on top of the bag? I know it probably makes little difference in actually having garbage on the food, but if it's not just sitting on top of the garbage then I feel like I'm actually digging through trash to eat something. And dat's naaaasty.

5 hours is more than enough time for a hotdog to start getting nasty. If it were still good, but was just sitting on some trash and I was really hungry then hell yeah. But then again why the fuck would I have a hotdog in my house? I hate hotdogs.

I would never be that desperate for food.

Go make a sandwich you lazy motherfucker!

#6 Edited by laserbolts (5319 posts) -

hahaha of course not. 5 hours is fucked even if it isnt in the trash.

Hell no.

#8 Posted by Alkaiser (358 posts) -

No. I would not eat garbage. Any food that sits in a garbage can immediately becomes garbage on contact.

People voting yes to this are what's wrong with society.

No way son.

#12 Posted by T74123C (5 posts) -

If I was that hungry for a hotdog, I'd probably go exchange money for goods and services, such as hotdogs that aren't from the trash. In other words, I'd avoid fast-food restaurants.

People who vote yes to this are precisely the type of people you don't want to get stuck sitting next to on any mode of public transportation.

#14 Posted by SMTDante89 (2567 posts) -

I think I'd rather cut off my own foot and go to town on that. Not really but I think you get my point.

#15 Posted by FirebirdINF (275 posts) -

A crucial piece of information that was in the Bombcast question is missing here: ALCOHOL IS INVOLVED! If I am drunk enough to consider the question, I am drunk enough to say yes. Although, that alcohol better be 120 proof vodka because after five hours the hotdog begins to be decomposed by bacteria.

Also, this question should be transferred to tested.com. Oh, wait...

#16 Posted by Redbullet685 (6036 posts) -

Of course not.

#17 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

Why the fuck would you throw away half of a good hotdog in the first place?

#18 Posted by Chaser324 (6432 posts) -

Anything that typically requires refrigeration to keep that's been sitting out for five hours is not voluntarily or knowingly going to be ingested by me.

#19 Posted by OllyOxenFree (4970 posts) -

No, you disgusting pig.

#20 Posted by Turkalurch (198 posts) -

What the fuck is wrong with you!

#21 Posted by FirebirdINF (275 posts) -

No? What a bunch of snobs.

#22 Posted by probablytuna (3621 posts) -

I don't eat trash.

#23 Posted by EVO (3894 posts) -

What are people more disgusted by? The fact that it's been out for 5 hours, or that it's in the trash?

#24 Posted by Clonedzero (4200 posts) -


i mean even if i thought the bag was perfectly capable of protecting it from whatever other trash was in the bin, it probably wouldnt even occur to me that it was a possibility to eat it. if i wanted to save it, i would have put it in the fridge.


#25 Posted by lawl3rbawl3r (7 posts) -

I wouldn't but that only because I don't eat hot dogs.

#26 Posted by MordeaniisChaos (5730 posts) -

I wouldn't eat ANY hot dog left out for 5 hours. Fresh or I won't eat it!

#27 Posted by TooWalrus (13173 posts) -

God no, once cooked, hot dogs have a half-life of like 5 minutes, as they degrade into nastyness.

#28 Edited by Phatmac (5725 posts) -

I've never eaten anything out of the trash and I will continue this till my death!

#29 Posted by 9999dmg (132 posts) -

A very Seinfeldian quandary indeed!

#30 Posted by FirebirdINF (275 posts) -

I dont have a problem with it being in the trash PER SE. As long as its clean and unaffected by smells. But 5 hours for a hot dog requires close consideration or strong alcohol mixed with desperation.

#32 Posted by bluefoxxy (167 posts) -

My main question is: Can I microwave it and redress it as a hot dog with a bun and condiments? If so, then yes. IF I am forced to choose to eat if from the bag, AS IS..... If there is no food in the house, then yeah why not. My stomach was built to digest shit. Might as well put it to work.

#33 Posted by NlGHTCRAWLER (1215 posts) -

Hotdogs are gross.

If anything you can just use a fucking fridge if that dog was that damn good.

Seinfeld is pretty great.

#36 Posted by Toxin066 (3283 posts) -

It's in a bag, it's safe. It's just like eating candy off the ground if it's still in the wrapper.

Actually, that's not a good example. Fuck it, I'm going "no."

#37 Posted by Marokai (2903 posts) -

No, because I'm not total fucking trash. Even setting aside the fact that it's half eaten, hours old, and in the garbage, hot dogs are one of the cheapest bulk semi-snack foods you could buy. 

#38 Edited by TeflonBilly (4713 posts) -

I'd probably do it if I was sloppy drunk.

Speaking of eating when you plop home drunk. Once I got home early in the morning and had a wild hankering for a watermelon I had in the fridge. However I was too drunk to proplerly open it with a knife. So I ended up doing this.

All that sweet melon was mine now! After devouringit, I promptly passed out and the morning after it took me awhile to remember why there was watermelon parts all over my shower.

#39 Posted by Turambar (6742 posts) -

I wouldn't eat any hotdog that's just been sitting there for five hours unless it was refrigerated.

#40 Posted by Terramagi (1159 posts) -

Fuck yeah I would.

Carpe diem bitches. 5 second rule? 5 HOUR rule is more like it.

Personally it being out for 5 hours doesn't bother me. I have eaten things that have been sitting out for much longer than 5 hours before.

I refuse to eat anything sitting in the trash though.

Of course I work in a kitchen, so I pretty much have an iron stomach from eating really old food.

#42 Posted by FateOfNever (1830 posts) -

I wouldn't eat half a hot dog that was just sitting on the counter for five hours, let alone one that's been in the trash for that long...

My stomach controls my brain.

#45 Posted by ch3burashka (5045 posts) -

If no one is around to witness it, absolutely.

I have exceptionally low standards for food. I firmly believe I can't get food poisoning, and a hot dog's a hot dog.

#46 Posted by Hamst3r (4481 posts) -

5 hours is far too long. I wouldn't eat a hot dog left on a clean counter top for 5 hours.

#47 Posted by SmilingPig (1337 posts) -
#48 Edited by WilltheMagicAsian (1544 posts) -

No, definitely not. Maybe if it was on the top of the bin and it was like at sub-freezing temperatures in my kitchen.

Like 24 hours on a hot dog. Never from the trash.
