I will stick with shower then, even though I have probably the cleanest ass in Switzerland

Ok next one! I made a very large pot of mixed vegetable soup to last me 3 days at 17:00 yesterday. The soup stayed warm for a couple of hours out in the kitchen. I forgot to put the soup in the fridge last night. At 05:00 this morning I put it in the fridge.

What is bacteria situation with it? Keep on consuming it fearlessly as long as I heat it up properly? What if it had been a non-veg soup?
It's fine, you killed any bacteria that was in it when you cooked it. Vegetables aren't generally a source of food poisoning/bacterial contamination anyways (at least, not in Switzerland).

If you had left out raw meat it would be a different story, as it could very likely have had living bacteria on it, which would have had all night to multiply at room temperature.
