    Today I made a horrible mistake...

    I was so hungry this afternoon and I had this boiled egg in my backpack, but I had forgot how old it was. Well I ate it, but later realized it was in there since Monday (2.5 days). Am I going to get pretty sick?

    Possibly, but you probably won't be able to tell until sometime tomorrow.

    I doubt it.

    I've eaten cottage cheese that was over a week past it's due date, and I was perfectly fine. I don't suggest doing such things, but I won't fret about it.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    This has nothing to do with Due dates, and due dates on dairy is pretty worthless. There is absolutely nothing wrong with milk, yogurt, etc that is 10 days past its "Expiration date"

    My situation is about an egg that was not refriderated for about 3 days meaning there is probably tons of bacteria on it...and I ate it. What a fool

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Dude, you're gonna make yourself sick just by stressing about it so much.

    I'd say you'd know by now if you were in trouble.

    If the egg was boiled and the shell intact, the contents should be sterile.

    Boiled eggs don't smell the greatest when they're fresh but a rotten egg has got to smell pretty bad. If the shell looked fine and you didn't vomit within 5 minutes of ingesting it, I wouldn't worry.

    well guys turned out I was okay.

    But, I think I got lucky. You see, I had the eggs in a sealed plastic bag. When I took the bag out of my backpack, the bag looked like it had been sealed by a vacuum. If you ever see a can with a dent in it, don't eat it's contents (botulism). The bacteria use up all the oxygen. Looking back, I think this is why my bag was like this. Well I've learned my lesson, and I wont do that agin

    wtf! You can't go through life worrying about every little can having a dent in it.

    What about the dumbasses that just drop cans and cause dents?

    If everyone though this there'd be a landfill full of canned goods and nobody would be starving in africa or wherever else they're starving.

    Like I said, if you see a can with a dent in it, don't buy it. It could be infected with clostridium botulinum. Nothing to mess around with.
