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.​

Do you ever wonder, “How much of this can I accidentally ingest before I die?” Yeah, so do we. For your safety (and enjoyment) here’s a bunch of stuff you should only enjoy in small quantities.
(PLEASE don’t try any of this at home.)

Some fans set up tents on Jan. 19 for the best seats to Saturday’s game. Scores more staked out space on Feb. 2. Hundreds more claimed Krzyzewskiville residency three weeks later. A line of stragglers formed this week and now snakes through campus. About 1,200 Duke students will rattle Cameron’s wooden bleachers Saturday.
