I will use the same analogy I always use when this topic comes up.

I feel it is sort of like driving without a seatbelt. Just because you have always done it and never got hurt does not make it safe. That one time you do get sick you will be wishing you tossed it.

The ONLY time I've ever had food poisoning in my entire life, has been when I ate from a restaurant. And equally, the only times that food gives me an upset stomach, is take-out food, never when I eat from home.

Your point seemed to be that restaurants were the source of food poisoning. See the bolded parts of you post and the all caps ONLY for emphasis.

I have had the opposite experience from you and was suggesting that food poisoning can happen anywhere.

i think anyone who has sat next to the toilet throwing up and curled up in a fetal position in pain, drinking nothing but gatorade for two days will vote for you to toss out the food...

Again - thoughts, people. Perhaps I think too much!!
I liked your thoughts, and I would be honored to have you cook goat for me, or any other local speciality. A recent side road trip brought me driving near a local farmer who sells 1/2 goats for roasting and stews. Waiting for the cooler days of fall to take him up on it. You bet!
