Yes, the "powers that be" have given me the day off today for good behavior. Whooo hooo. Of course the one bad part is my wife can’t share in my merriment. She has to work. So what will I do to occupy my time? Here’s what’s on the menu today…
- Go for a run (10 minutes worth)
- Eat something REALLY bad for lunch
- Surf porn
- Watch a cheesy action movie
- Surf porn
- Questions the great mysteries of life
I won’t bore you with 1 through 5. Instead I’ll skip right to 6. Today’s GREAT MYSTERY that has entered my brain is (drum roll please) …
WILL I DIE IF I EAT A WHOLE TUBE OF TOOTHPASTE?
Now I’m sure everyone in the blogosphere has accidentally swallowed the white stuff every now and then. Totally nasty. So what if I saw past the pain and squeezed that whole tube in my mouth? Would it be death by minty freshness?
HERE'S WHAT I FOUND...
99% of the “answer” sites I looked at said basically the same thing. Eating toothpaste is bad, and you should call poison control immediately. LAME! That tells me squat. But fear not, 2 sites did dish the dirt. YES, YOU WILL DIE! Well, yes, depending on how much you weigh. Apparently if you don’t have enough body weight you’d die of [get this] – Fluoride poisoning. Another site made a bolder statement saying that a tube of fluoride is almost as poisonous as arsenic. Not sure I believe that, or the fact that toothpaste also contains Sodium lauryl sulfate which might (or might not) cause diarrhea. Happy Friday!
