Wondering if that jar of horseradish is still good to eat? Find out at StillTasty, your ultimate shelf life guide. There's a fridge-full of other info on the site with answers to many common perishable food questions:

Can You Safely Drink Milk After the Sell-By Date?
Is it OK to Put Hot Food Directly Into the Fridge?
Are Eggs Still Safe After the Expiration Date?

onychophagist Noun (plural onychophagists)

(rare) A person who bites his or her fingernails.

 Origin: From Ancient Greek ὀνυχο- (onuch), combining form of ὄνυξ (onux, “claw, nail”) + -φαγος (phagos, “eater”), from ἐφαγόν (ephagon, “I ate”).

I never met a plumber with that problem.
