Don't do these things.

A student died after eating leftover pasta in a rare food poisoning case

“Immediately after eating, he left home for his sports activities, but he returned 30 minutes later because of a headache, abdominal pain, and nausea. At his arrival, he vomited profusely for several hours and at midnight had two episodes of watery diarrhea,” the report said. “He did not receive any medication and drank only water. After midnight, he fell asleep. The next morning at 11:00 AM, his parents were worried because he did not get up. When they went to his room, they found him dead.”

Wooooooof.

That's less darwin and more hideously bad luck. My brother will do that shit. He'll eat cold meat that's been sitting out for a day without nuking it. I think he's finally broken of the habit though. He got super fucking sick about a month ago having done it and I explained to him a little bit about how food poisoning happens.

We can tolerate eating more gross shit than you'd think. But still...

I almost wonder if I should throw this thread into screenshots since the best examples involve death and dismemberment lol

It happens a lot in the field/shop in areas related to my work. Cameras not allowed tho. People complain it's for "trade secrets". I've always been of the opnion it's to keep people from taking pictures and videos of stupid shit that would get them shut down by OSHA or EPA in a hurry. Closest I've seen in person to winning the Darwin award was a guy pushed out several feet of grating to stand on, turned around and cut it off between him and the support the other end was sitting on. He didn't win the award tho. He died, but he already had a kid.

I had to run this back and forth in my head several times before it finally processed because it sounds so ludicrous.

The dude cut off the flooring he was STANDING ON and fell to his death?

no it's Darwin
“A.J.,” became sick after eating spaghetti and tomato sauce that had been prepared five days earlier.

The report’s authors said the spaghetti had been stored at room temperature before the 20-year-old used the microwave to warm it up.

is there more to this story? do ppl just reguarly leave spaghetti out on the counter for 5 days, like you made a big pot of spaget on Sunday, eat it, wrap it film and just leave it on the countertop for five days to heat it up on friday to feast?
