Parts of America are getting out the shovels to try to clear up
after the huge snow storm that's hit the north east of the country.
Many schools were closed and roads blocked as winter
came back with a bang.
Cars were stranded where they were parked and snow ploughs
are being used to clear the main roads.
If you're eating your tea now and you drop something on the floor,
should you be tempted to pick it up?
Ayshah's got this one.
Have you ever picked up food from the floor and eaten it?
Come on, be honest.
No, I'd never do that!
No, I've never done that.
Well, need to get some honest answers here.
So apparently some scientists are now saying it might
not be so bad for you.
It's the so-called five-second rule.
But hold up, there's loads of things you need to think about before
you start telling your brother or sister to eat
stuff from the floor.
If it's sticky or sweet, probably worth giving it a miss.
If it's covered in dirt...
If it's pasta, biscuits or dry toast, then scientists say
you just might be OK.
Have you ever eaten anything off the floor before?
If it was mine then yes.
It's just disgusting.
A sweet, yeah.
Not like proper food.
I put it in the bin.
If you could clearly clean it off and it obviously weren't dirty
anymore then probably.
You get all fluff on it.
And I don't like fluff biscuits.
What if you drop it in mud?
If I drop something, I wouldn't eat it even if it is dry or that.
I would put it in the bin.
I don't think it's good.
I mean, I've done it before.
I have done that before but I still don't think it's very hygienic.
What would you say to those scientists who came up with this?
I would say you need to take another year on that.
Mr Scientist, I do not accept your five-second rule,
I don't accept your four-second rule, I don't accept
your three-second rule, nor do I accept your two-second rule
or one second-rule.
He's the big hearted super-villain,
with many Minion friends and, this June, Gru's returning to
the big screen in Despicable Me 3.
We've been putting your questions to Steve Carell,
the actor behind everyone's favourite criminal mastermind.
Hi, I'm Steve Carell, and I play Gru in Despicable Me 3.
As I was saying, I...
Anya aged ten from Bristol, England, asks do you prefer playing Gru
when he is an evil super villain or a good guy?
It's always kind of fun to play the evil side of him
because you never know what he's going to do.
I left that life behind me.
Just one heist!
What do you and Gru have in common?
That's a good question, Sarah.
I think the fact that we are both dads.
I have two kids, Gru has three.
We are both married.
I have all done a wife named Nancy and Gru has Lucy.
And we both drive incredibly complicated rocket mobiles.
I'm going in!
-- I have a wife named Nancy and Gru has Lucy.
I'm going in!
I'm going to be impaled!
If you weren't an actor, what would you be?
I think I'd actually be a teacher.
I've thought about it, you know, and when I first
started being an actor, and you never know if it is
going to work out or not, I always thought that my second
choice behind being an actor would be teaching, cos
I think that would be fun.
What's the best thing about your job?
Boy, doing the voice for Gru is about the most fun you can have
cos you just laugh every day you do it and he says crazy stuff and he's
always being so silly.
Are you ready to continue the family tradition, you and me?
That's all from me.
