@Fa5t3r - People are very cautious about chicken and other meat, but don't realize the danger that rice and similar carb-based meals can have. When you think about it, cooked rice is generally moist and pretty much a perfect environment for bacteria.
People will leave it out overnight without thinking about leftover food safety and then just reheat it slightly for lunch the next day and wonder why they suddenly get sick.
If you pop it into the fridge there shouldn't be any problems. But it should definitely be treated with the same caution as you would treat any raw meats.
