Alright guys first off I don't even know where to post this situation of mine. But since it deals with food... Ill post it here.
Alright if you leave a whole, UNCOOKED frozen turkey in a large bowl of salt water over night, will it be contaminated/ stupid of me to cook it the next morning? I just got in an argument with a friend just now... He trying to defrost this turkey... He put the damn turkey in this freakin duffel plastic box container with salt water... when I saw that I was like holy freakin ****to. he says it won't get you sick... Man fukkk that ****! Am I The one that is wrong here and raging for no reason?
I seriously think that's just sick to leave out turkey over night... opinions?

You shouldn't defrost a frozen turkey by just leaving it out, the outside of the turkey can warm up enough to increase the risk of bacteria growth. It's an increased risk, just because someone says they do it and never got sick before doesn't mean it cant happen. Best way to defrost a turkey is in the refrigerator but that can take up to 4-5 days depending on the size, another way is to use cold running water. I'm not really sure about your specific situation since the turkey is placed in salt water, which I guess depending on the salinity probably isn't a problem.
