Sometimes, life presents us with unbearable dilemmas—like when you drop your last cookie on the kitchen floor. Do you quickly pick it up and eat it? Does eating a cookie off the floor make you a savage? When you drop a piece of food on the ground, how much time do you really have before it becomes contaminated?

CookieMonster: WHERE ARE THE COOKIES (eats the cookies in one gulp)
Dry foods can be fine for anywhere from 30 seconds to slightly over a minute, depending on the size of the food. It seems that it was a parabola effect with size, with smaller dry foods like animal crackers and bigger dry foods like a circus lollipop having less time to pick up, and medium sized dry foods like cookies, certain candy bars and Jacked Doritos having the longest time threshold. However, you can still run the risk of having terrible luck and having the food land right on certain detrimental bacteria. So the 5 second rule in cases like this would work better than a 45 second rule, for example.
WET FOODS ARE ALMOST IMMEDIATELY INFESTED. Unless you're a badass ninja with god tier reflexes, don't even bother.
