How Not To Kill Yourself With Household Items[Pic]



For your safety (and enjoyment) here's a bunch of household products you should only enjoy in small quantities or not at all. Some things just don't belong in your mouth.

Obligatory warning followed by a heavy sigh: Don't try any of this at home, okay? Just take our word for it.



Cinnamon - 40 Tablespoons



One tablespoon of cinnamon has resulted in thousands of videos of people coughing and choking on YouTube. Thankfully it's not the 40 tablespoon challenge, which could result in fatal benzaldehyde poisoning.​



Laundry Detergent - 17 Cups



Tide laundry detergent doesn't want to be inside you: drink half a cup and you'll have sudsy regurgitations. Clean, yet so dirty. Manage to keep 35 times that down and the detergent's acids can cause fatal organ damage.



Gorilla Glue - 136 Ounces



If you try drinking 17 eight-ounce bottles of Gorilla Glue you'll get high on glue fumes, then you'll die.



Toothpaste - 13 Tubes



Swallowing a little toothpaste while brushing your teeth will make you feel uncomfortable - swallowing 13 tubes of toothpaste will kill you.



Water - 1.75 Gallons



You can poison yourself with water: drink over a gallon in an hour and you'll be irritable, drowsy, suffering from a headache, and behaving strangely. If you consume another three quarters of a gallon in that hour, your nervous system will shut down.



Spoiled Potato Skins - 40 Milligrams



Spoiled potatoes are seriously dangerous. Medical cases report cardiac dysrhythmia, nightmares, headaches, and dizziness from eating just over 40 milligrams of the stuff! Eat more than three times that and you can die from central nervous failure.



Chewing Gum - 404 Packs



Chewing a pack of gum a day for eight months can cause severe weight loss and diarrhea, all attributable to excess buildup of a compound called sorbitol. Gum can also be fatal if you chew 404 packs in a single sitting.



Blue Cheese - 22 Pounds



Blue cheese will make you smell a little ripe. Thank Penicillum Roqueforti for that. Its putrid fragrance and rich flavor comes with enough toxin to kill you if you eat about 22 pounds. It's definitely one of the stinkiest ways to die.



Painter's Caulk - 7.5 Pounds



Not that we're judging, but why would you coat your digestive track with the stuff you put around your tub and sink? Whatever your reason, if you eat seven-and-a-half pounds you'll be six feet under.



Carrots 39 Pounds



If you find yourself eating 24 carrots a week (roughly four pounds) for eight months, you'll turn orange and resemble Ernie, a condition called Carotanemia. Eating approximately 215 carrots (39 pounds) can cause carotenoid poisoning, which is fatal.



Simple Green - 12.5 Ounces



Simple Green can be fatal, albeit organic. Just 12.5 ounces can cause central nervous system failure.



Windex - 14 Ounces



If you drink two ounces of Windex glass cleaner within an hour you'll be drunk. Fourteen ounces will shut down your nervous system.



Capsaicin - 6 Grams



We all have a love-hate relationship with the spice molecule capsaicin - eating two dozen wings always seems like a good idea at the time, and a terrible one in the bathroom later. Purified capsaicin can be downright dangerous, and even fatal. About three M&Ms worth could kill you.



Pantene Hairspray - Two Cans



Drinking two cans of Pantene Pro-V Frizz Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray will stop your liver, and you will die.



Centrum Vitamins - 61 Bottles



You really have to work to get weird with Centrum multivitamins: 39 tablets brings on iron-related stomach ulcers, vomiting, and reduced kidney function. Eat 6105 tablets, or 61 bottles, and you're likely to die of kidney failure.



Note: The information cited in this post is based on rough estimates calculated for a 154-pound adult. All calculations have been made using peer-reviewed-published LD50s.



Have you ever wondered, ``How much of this ____ could I accidentally ingest before I die?``

For everyone who thinks these are non-issues: the water one is legit. Back in the late 90s, many ravers gave themselves water poisoning (attempting to avoid dehydration, ironically). If I recall correctly, it far exceeded the number of fatalities due to drug overdoses at raves.

Nobody would do any of this, not even an insane person.

I liked this post. Do you know what I'd like even more? A post just like this, except with specific instructions on JUST HOW MUCH of various foods, spices, and household chemicals one needs to ingest in order to have an LSD-like trip, without causing any permanent damage. Everything I`ve found by searching the internet on the subject has been complete bullcrap or all-out hoaxes. I thought the Spoiled Potato Skins looked promising, but nope.
