Okay, I just read a very funny blog entry on Scott Hanselman's blog. He write's about the 5-second rule -- you know the one, if you drop something on the floor it's okay to eat it if you pick up within 5 seconds.
Despite the lack of scientific evidence, it kind of makes sense to me.
Anyway, he asked his readers from other countries to chime in and let him know if they have an equivalent in their countries. The responses are amusing.
