No, the worse that could happen is your buddies beat you to death...

Great! Ive had similar results,although mine didnt look as brutal as yours, I had no problem ageing mine that I was suspicious of.Some cleared well. I think oxygen has something to do with it,maybe some bacterial infections cant live without oxygen.That is just my observation,and Ive never dumped a batch and have had quite a few questional batches,key is to be consistent with keeping an eye on these batches. I would suggest you clean and sanitize well or even replace some of your cheaper equipement though just to be safe in future batches.Probably cant go wrong with some PBW and starsan. Even better is to immediatley rinse and clean after using your equipment so nasties cant live.

Lactobacillus is an anerobic bacteria, in fact, by depriving your fermentation of oxygen you are giving it an advantage over aerobic bugs. Like any other bug that can ferment our wort, once the sugar is depleted it is out of food. Ideally, you would wait until the bacteria is dead to drink it, but it won't hurt to consume it. Kimchee and sauerkraut also offer the same great probiotic benefit.

According to you,sounds like mine was not lacto infection. Because I still have some of the same batches well over a year not overcarbing or blowing up. I check on them randomly and they only taste better really. And according to some of my higher finish gravities,then they would probubibbubbilbly be eating up those extra sugars and blowing up my beers left and right.
