1260: "LD50"

Postby rainspeaker » Wed Sep 04, 2013 4:19 am UTC

Title-text: The dose is much lower when administered orally. We're still trying to get the paper into the needles for subcutaneous injection.

Would it really need to be in paper form? I wonder how the toxicity compares when we're talking about SD cards, for example.
Also, does it make sense to you to measure data by the weight of the paper it's printed on?

EDIT: urlified the image

Data just looks so much more empirical in print.

This really only measures how much data in general is a lethal dose. To get an amount specifically for toxicity data, the subject should have to read it. One of those volumes should be more than enough to destroy the will to live.

Why is the weight of the toxin twice as high as the weight of the contaminated subject? I once calculated the weight of a single sheet of paper at my night job. It was more fun than what I was doing at the moment.

I was reading some MSDSs (material safety data sheets) the other day. They list the LD50 of things, usually tested on rats. I don't think the LD50 makes a lot of sense for mixtures such as paper with ink, only for pure compounds.

Anyway, I don't know if they 'still' do LD50 tests like that. The values can be useful in some cases, for instance it can give doctors and safety workers a good idea of the relative toxicity of compounds.

LD50 means "lethal dose 50%', by the way. The dose at which half of the research population dies. You can imagine those rat tests being kinda horrible. The oral and intravenous tests are bad enough as they are. Wikipedia says that OECD dropped the requirement on oral tests in 2001 and UK has 'taken steps' to ban oral tests. I hope that computer-predicted values, which might be a bit less accurate, will replace these tests. It isn't like this is something we absolutely can't do without like medicine testing.

Anyway, I was going to say, one MSDS I came across (for a salt or an acid, I don't remember, but either way it stings) listed the LD50 for the substance... administered in the eye. That really made me cringe. Can you imagine some person in a white lab suit holding a rat and dripping something that clearly hurts in its little eyes until it dies? Again and again and again to get a good sample size... Yuck. Or did they make a machine to take the human factor out? That doesn't make it any better.

A friend of mine, a chemist, used to do her integer-calculation by sketching the graph onto a millimeter paper sheet, cut it out and put it onto the analisys scale. It was much more easy and the approximations were close enough.

I dunno - the LD50 of adult weight intimate companions is greater than 2 kg/kg. Perhaps that includes an armed spouse.
Perhaps professional toxicologists are not safe partners. I would like to see a toxicological analysis ...

I picture different things when the topic of animal testing comes up. Like for cosmetics and other "vanity" products. My mind conjures up pictures of white mice with long fluttery eyelashes, rosy cheeks and moist pouty lips. Or the guy down the hall testing breast implants in rabbits: "Hey, have you been to Dr Alistair's lab recently? He's got some bunnies in there that are really stacked!"

"These t-shirts were tested on animals. They didn't fit" did show up on some labels.

Intimate partners and stacked paper should have different LD50s - paper is considerably stiffer than humans at the weights relevant to us.

Depends on the PPI, or in other words the concentration, of the strips.

If you're printing them on single pieces of paper, then I don't think the 1200 or so strips to this day would be enough to kill anyone, neither by crushing or ingestion. Unless you were testing on lab rats, in which case I think you probably could smash a lab rat to death by dropping a stack of 1200 A4 size XKCD strips on it, and it would probably die if you fed them to it, although as in the comic, I'm not sure how you would get the paper inside the rat. I guess if you made a very thin papier maché you might get it through a syringe, but the rat would likely die of water toxicity rather than XKCD overdose.

Other possible causes of Death by XKCD:

- Laughter-induced asphyxiation
- Hit by bus while reading comic on smartphone while crossing road
- Lack of sleep caused by blitzing/posting in the OTT
- Starvation caused by ditto
- Loss of job leading to homelessness and consequent drastic drop in life expectancy caused by excessive time spent on the forums
- Murder by partner/spouse/SO incited by same

If you're considering dropping, then "dropping" a stack of paper at 90% of the speed of light can easily kill half of the population of a stadium.

The LD50 of an anti matter printout of xkcd should be even lower. :D

Quite so: I think that if you "drop" something from infinitely "high" onto a planet with no atmosphere, it will hit the surface at the escape velocity. Nothing in our solar system is anything like massive/small enough to get anywhere near 0.9c; even the Sun only gets to 0.002c. Furthermore the formula on Wikipedia doesn't appear to account for relativity, unless it cancels out somehow. You would hit the event horizon of a black hole at c, by definition, but you couldn't build a stadium there ("It Would. Be pulled. Apart. Like. Spaghetti").

That reminds me of I've seen "Not tested on animals" labels on aroma therapy candles. Which made me wonder how animal testing of them would be, and I picture a rabbit in a bubble bath with cucumber slices over it's eyes with candles lit around it. And a guy in a lab coat talking into a mic describing the calming effectiveness of the candles on the rabbit.

When posting my reply, I considered the stadium being built on a black hole, but... yeah. And even a neutron star only gives you 0.4c.

In fact the range of mass where a bunch of paper will hit the ground, but not hard enough to kill 50% of a stadium must be very small.

But to get escape velocity you would need to vacate the atmosphere and then the paper wouldn't burn up. But then everyone would asphyxiate before any paper hit them.

Anyway, the whole point of going to the stadium, rather than watching the match on TV, is for the atmosphere.

Why that would depend on the sort of intimacy one prefers.

That's a bit of a misconception. A high infant and child mortality rate and half the country being under the age of 15 around 100 years ago was responsible for the average life expectancy being 30 something. People regularly lived into their 60's and 70's as long as they weren't taken by polio, measles, ect.
