Ever wondered how much water/caffeine/alcohol you’d need to drink to reach a lethal dose? This graphic shows the median lethal dose for all three!

Read more detail about LD50 tests in the accompanying post: http://wp.me/p4aPLT-ol

Don’t think this is accurate at all. Took 21 shots my my 21st birthday. Ten straight then 5 mins later 11 more.

I was debating the shots as well. I have taken more than 13 in one night

I feel it’s worth taking the time to clarify some points on the LD50 of these substances - the information is present in the graphic/accompanying article, but seems to be being overlooked.

Firstly: the LD50 value is for a dose taken all at once. Secondly, it’s the value at which you’d have a 50% chance of death. Some people could drink more than this and live; conversely, some could drink less than this and die. The figures are also for a person of average weight (75kg), and in reality physical and medical conditions are also factors.

For alcohol, this is the calculated value, for the alcohol content specified (40% alcohol, 45ml shots). Personal drinking history, whether or not you’re drinking on an empty stomach, and physical/medical condition can all affect this value.

For a more accurate understanding, read the above.

Take note: this is how to properly disarm someone. Always go to the outside of the arm, not the inside.

ah yes I have been doing it wrong the whole time it seems cowering in fear was not the first step

I love this quote. I love this movie.

This scene impressed me so much when I first saw it. It still fills me with… idk something. I love it.

Still one of my favorite lines from a movie ever.
