I would!

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

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.

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

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.

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...

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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