For folks who hate slide shows (you're welcome):

1. Hot dogs
Morons choke on 'em.
2. Fugu
Morons eat 'em without proper preparation.
3. Ackee
Morons eat 'em while poisonous.
4. Peanuts
Allergic people swell up.
5. Leafy greens
Morons eat 'em without washing 'em first.
6. Rhubarb
Morons eat a lot of the poisonous bits.
7. Tuna
Morons poisoned them with mercury, then kept eating 'em.
8. Cassava
Morons eat 'em without proper preparation.
9. Coffee
Morons spill it in their laps.
10. Mushrooms
Morons eat the poisonous ones.

Leave it to Time to sensationalize the whole "hot dogs are scary" angle, because hot dogs are just as scary as, say, badly prepared fugu or a freshly picked Destroying Angel mushroom.

Feh.

Yes it says that eating the corn from her shiat will not end well as it does not turn them on.

i think "hotdog" is already on the list
 
2010-02-23 03:01:09 PM  
I've had everything on that list except the fugu. We had an ackee tree in our yard in Florida, and when the red fruit popped open, some guy who had a Jamaican restaurant would come around and pick them, and give us curried goat and various other goodies. Great food.

Saying that mushrooms are dangerous is like saying that plants are dangerous. Pretty huge amount of variety in that kingdom.

wait, this article was outlining a government plan to ban foods? i really have to start reading these things.

If you don't chew it thoroughly, the suction cups can stick in your throat and suffocate you.

this recent hot dog scare makes ME want to choke people! i'm astounded at the stupidity of "parents" and "caregivers" who allow kids to choke on HOT DOGS!

most kids i know were raised on hot dogs...my step daughter, a 3rd grader, typically takes 2 for lunch 2 or 3 days a week. never even came close to choking.

and yes, it's sadly hilarious that time plays it up so big as to put it on a list with ill-prepared fugu and poisonous shrooms

FormlessOne: 2. Fugu

I really wish I'd been sober when I was entertained on a business trip to Kobe. I think we were fed fugu, but I can't quite remember.

/ Or perhaps it's better that I was half-cut at the time.
 
2010-02-23 03:07:32 PM  
I was expecting "Outback Cheese Fries" dangerous instead of "Fugu" dangerous. This kind of dangerous is much more interesting than foods with 8,000 Calorie servings.
 
2010-02-23 03:08:13 PM  
Yes, let's re-design hotdogs. ಠ_ಠ
 
2010-02-23 03:08:17 PM  
So...avoid cabbage, kale, spinach...because people don't wash their hands...

Seems that category can be expanded exponentially.

This is why you drink enough pepto, softens it up and make it easier.

I miss the really really hot McDonald's coffee of yore. Damn that old woman.
 
2010-02-23 03:09:33 PM  
#1 on that list should be French Onion soup, it's a damn death trap...but oh so good.

And FTFA: Are you really surprised? Aside from hallucinogenic properties, mushrooms can also kill. Varieties like the Death Cap, Destroying Angels and Deadly Webcap are highly poisonous and capable of inducing death (i.e. killing you). If only there were labels in the wild ...

Seriously? Was that i.e. really needed?

Did you know if you put a torch to Pepto, you'll end up with a small molten chunk of metal? The more you know.

if peanuts are on there for allergies, why omit shellfish?

Last week in my local market I heard a woman coughing so deeply and heartily I thought a lung must be coming up. I looked over and saw that she was coughing all over the jalapeno peppers. I wouldn't have bought them, or anything next to them, even if they'd been washed with bleach.

poutine. That is all
 
2010-02-23 03:11:44 PM  
Oysters seem to kill a lot of folks down here in Florida, especially if they are eaten raw. But it's almost always folks who have something wrong with themselves to begin with, then they get sick eating the oysters and never recover.

But my hamberger and diet coke is ok to eat--cool I was worried there for a sec.

Time Magazine is a farking pile of shiat.

a top 10 most dangerous food is coffee because some moron spilled it on themselves? Coffee is hot. Lord knows what would happen if one of us tried to cook hot food ourselves.

And greens? All the bacteria comes from animal products cross contaminated with veg. You can't wash it off. But you could stop processing meat in centralized factories...

Or anything with gluten in it...

Missing from the list:
- ammunition
- live scorpions
- buckets of bees
- barbed wire
- other wire
- cup of battery acid
- any solid on the planet smaller than your mouth that you don't chew properly

Because when last I checked, you couldn't accidentally make something with crab or shrimp oil.

Given the rationale behind the 'danger', I'm confused as to how raw chicken didn't make the list. And botulism. Not only is eating botulism bad for your health, it tasts like shiat.

I'm wondering if our unseasonably springish weather here in the PNW is going to send the suckers up early. Hell yeah morel pasta.

I've had fugu. It was a great big meh.
 
2010-02-23 03:17:31 PM  
Coffee is there because it's hot? Why aren't all hot food there then; lasagna can do some serious damage, pizza too! Mozzarella is Italian napalm.
 
2010-02-23 03:18:20 PM  
You mean I shouldn't eat something called the Death Cap or Destroying Angel? It all seems so obvious now!
