I've home canned since the 70's. Never had a problem. Home canners always check the lids to make sure they are sealed before they open them.

Whoa! that the can sealed does not mean the contents are safe, in and of itself alone. If you accept someone else's canned food, you need to ask some questions. You can find those questions by googling.

... But living a remote lifestyle, I've frozen venison for 2 years and it was plenty edible. You can smell when it starts going bad. That venison though, was home processed, and higher quality meat then store bought.

I agree about wild meat, it often even tenderizes better when frozen.

don't know that much about canned fish, but I eat plenty of it. I even once in a while eat canned mackerel, makes a good sandwich you'd probably like if you like sardines. The types of fish like canned sardines are supposed to be good for you, having the right kind of fatty acids I think.* In the cases where bones are in the fish, even with mackerel where they are a bit big, you are wasting your time removing them, the process of high heat pressure cooking makes them totally soft and may be part of the nutrition.

*though I have confessed to liking canned fish, including types most people won't touch, I get tired of any kind of regular diet of them, so I am not a person trying to stay healthy because they are good for you in current estimation. Besides, I get this feeling that one day the doc pundits are going to come out and say "well, anymore, no, we don't think sardines are good for you."

I mean come on, eating discarded room service food Casino hallways.



I remember watching someone leave their tray on the table in a food court, and this other guy comes over in about 30 seconds and starts eating what's left. That's probably some sort of food AP play.

It's certainly a different kind of Advantage Play.

Personally, I'm into Advantage Play for a few different reasons, but when it comes down to it my ultimate goal is to make money. I want to make money so I can avoid having to do those types of things. I want to be comfortable and spend money on things I like, want and need without being too foolish. If Scavenging is being used as a survival tactic then by all means do what you got to do. There's nothing wrong with that.

I guess if dumpster diving and whatnot allows you to save your way to that new Lamborghini you've always wanted then maybe I can understand.

I never said or even insinuated I had a problem with him promoting his website here, I'm all for it. I appreciate and respect the fact that they are willing to help a brother out who's competing with them on a small scale.

I was only making fun of the content, I mean come on, eating discarded room service food Casino hallways. Imagine eating a hot dog that either Rome's or PokerGrinder left outside their room. God only knows where that hot dog once was. I'm sorry, but that's not fancy brown mustard on that thing.

It's an interesting thing, because it's totally social/mental.

If you walk past someone's tray and there is untouched toast, there really is no difference. Why shouldn't you eat it?

What is the difference between having a few fries of your friends plate, and having a few of some other random person's? Did the plate being moved from the room to the hallway change the fries in some way?

I don't usually like sharing drinks and stuff, but tons of people do, or take a bite of something that someone else has bitten out of. Or double dip. All that stuff is gross to me. But if you are a double dipper, why not eat right out of the trash?

I haven't crossed the line myself, but I can't really think of a good reason not to.

Sometimes my 'leftovers' are leftover because they fell on the floor, or a fly was on it, or I sneezed on it. Are those good reasons for you?

My theory is that the cook, server, or delivery person probably already did that even before you ate. What's the difference.

Yeah, I think the likelihood of that stuff doesn't go up very much at all. And you've eaten food that has had that happen to it a million times anyway.

Really, I don't think a lot of people sneeze on their food. I can't remember ever doing it, anyway.

If I dropped my toast on the floor, I wouldn't attempt to perfectly rearrange it so it looked untouched. If I dropped a fry on the floor, I wouldn't put it back in with the others. I'm pretty clumsy but I don't really drop food I'm eating on the floor much at all when I'm just sitting there eating it. More when preparing, or getting something out of a package.

I do stuff like this all the time, and I think it's pretty normal: I cook food and eat some, while the rest is sitting in the kitchen. Then I come back for seconds. Could a fly have landed on it? Sure, I guess.

Order delivery, or eat at a buffet, or use a salsa bar. Could someone have sneezed on it, or stuck their finger in it, or a fly have come by? Sure. Actually, I think at a buffet, it's more likely than if it has been sitting in a hallway for a little while. Some stuff at buffets, it's a virtual certainty that people have stuck their fingers in. You think everybody is using the tongs to get their rolls? What about kids? Imagine all the gross ish they do at buffets.
