Additional, slightly more detailed, article (x). It uses nanotech!
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!

That is all 100% bullshit.
According to this I should have died numerous times already.
If that were accurate I would die daily.
This is bullshit.
0.65 litre of 40% spirit is not a lethal dose - plenty people drink lots more than that.
.65L of 200 proof is not a lethal dose to someone used to liquor. And 6L of water? Hell… They tell you to drink that every day.
Not quite every day, but there are plenty days when I have drunk 6 litres or so, mainly because it was summer and I sweat like a fucking horse when doing stuff like cleaning goat sheds.
I’m going to do this one more time, because I think it’s important to stop people getting the wrong end of the stick. Or, in some cases, the wrong stick. This information is right there, on the graphic, but I clearly should have put it in bigger letters or something, because it keeps getting missed!
Firstly: the LD50 value is for a dose taken all at once. Not over day, or several hours, but all in one go. 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.
There are documented cases of water poisoning (and death from it) at roughly this amount. There are also accounts of deaths from alcohol after drinking less than the amount featured here in one go.
The post that accompanies the graphic goes into lots more detail about median lethal doses, and I’d highly recommend reading it!
I’m really hoping season 4 of Sherlock will be genuine Sherlock.
I’m in love with the first two seasons. But when it comes to season three, I can’t really say the same. Initially upon viewing them I really liked them, but that’s probably because it was something new and when it comes to things you love, new is always a high. But after the new feeling settled down and I watched them, they felt different. The first two episodes at least. The first two episodes just felt like something written to make the fans happy, and not a continuation of the story. It felt more like “we’re going to take your fan fiction ideas so you can all have nice little freak outs and you can all be satisfied” they felt like some teenager’s 2 am second draft fan fiction (with a bit better quality) rather than the show that I fell in love with. His Last Vow however took the season back somewhat to the show that it was. I just hope season four will be Sherlock, rather than “Sherlock written for/by the fans.” It’s such a wonderful show, and I’d hate for it to continue like this and just be some online poll of “What do you want to happen, it might appear in the next episode.”
So I bought a guitar cable yesterday, one end is the regular 1/4” jack that goes to the guitar and the other is a usb. So I can plug it directly into my computer. I started toying with garage band, and it’s been pretty neat. Also at the end with the jack there’s also a place where you can put in another cable and that goes to your amp so you can hear what you’re playing in real time because there’s a delay between what you’re playing and the computer. So I set up all my pedals and whatnot like I normally would but instead of leading it to an amp I did it with the usb cable and I directed another to the amp and chose whatever amp simulator is closest to mine. So that’s been fun. All I need is a mic and I’ll be set for this upcoming semester.
What really annoys me about this is that they only gif up to this so that everyone who reblogs it gets to feel like they’re smarter than everyone else. What happens right after is she tells him how much of a cynical ass he’s being and then tells him it’s called venti because of how many ounces it is. And I feel like that’s a really important part, but it gets glossed over because when it comes to a bunch of cynical teenagers who like to see things they’ll never say we like to skip the important bits.
Holy shit, Anthony Weiner actually said something important.
It’s a miracle!
That’s been the Republican strategy since day one of Obama’s presidency. Block the President at every turn, then blame him for not getting anything done. In fact, here’s Newt Gingrich openly admitting to it.
That’s why Republicans block jobs bills — so they can blame Obama for the economy still sucking. They’ve blocked budgets, resulting in a government shutdown that they then tried to blame on Obama. They’ve tried over and over again to block Obamacare, and complain that it’s a failure as they work their asses off to try to make it fail.
It’s kindergarten politics, and we need to vote these schmucks out in November. A bunch of white guys throwing temper tantrums and shouting NO! to everything just because they don’t like the president is no way to run a government, especially if we’re going to continue to pretend to be one of the greatest nations on earth.
