This man Ant Gonna Waste no ice cream! Those ants shouldn’t have taken it for grANTed.
Seriously though, the 5-second rule has been tested by scientist, and you should just not do it.
The five-second rule was also featured in an episode of the Discovery Channel series MythBusters. There was no significant difference in the number of bacteria collected from 2 seconds exposure as there was from 6 seconds exposure. The moisture, surface geometry and the location the food item was dropped on did, however, affect the number of bacteria. Ted Allen put the rule to the test in an episode of Food Detectives, and found that bacteria will cling to food immediately. High traffic areas will lead to even more bacteria on the food. Vsauce YouTube channel also dedicated a video to this topic. [Source]/blockquote>
