The Three Second Rule

Yes, another Big Brother reference; last night Kate happened to drop a plate of potato chips, with the house mates not being happy about it due to the fact that they have limited food for the week. Only recently was I introduced to the Three Second Rule while at a BBQ. Apparently, if you’re food does accidentally hit the ground, you have three seconds in which to retrieve it in order for it still to be consumable. After that, the food has been contaminated........unsure if this rule applies at more formal dinners.
