What do you leave OUT of the fridge? Food safety

Lately I have been making enough rice for a couple of days and just leaving it on the stove, covered. Whatever isn't eaten in about 36/48 hours gets tossed or used in another dish. I hate refrigerating rice unless I'm using it for fried rice. So far I haven't died a horrible death or gotten sick.

I made rice with beans today and I'm wondering if I should refrigerate it, since it involves more than just plain rice + water. The rice just finished cooking (midnight), and it will be eaten in about 8 hours for breakfast. What do you think?

What foods do you hate refrigerating?
