Raw Oysters-how long before they die?

rabaja | Mar 31, 200806:49 PM     26

Hi there. I bought some delicious looking kumomotos Friday afternoon intending to eat them that night, raw with a nice mignonette.
I totally forgot about them until JUST NOW. Are we asking for a night on the great throne if we eat them raw tonight?
Please share your thoughts/experiences.
I know mussels and clams would be fine for two days, but you can kinda tell when they are dead. No clue what a dead oyster looks like...
If they smell and are slimy I will avoid, but I'd love to hear what you all think.
