Nice necro post.
But I didn't see it before and now I'm all excited.
I don't drink coffee and tea makes me sick.
But drinking Coke, even on an empty stomach, is just fine.
So it is my ingested caffeine of choice, every day.
And it has been known to LASE ?!!?!
I gotta know more !
Oh BTW. I was reading all the old posts and I could swear that the term used in a couple of instances would be said "Laze-ee"...but I could be wrong. (If the wife ever sees it I will be !)
I would agree, this question needs some fine tuning.
Are we looking for the single most lethal medium or the medium responsible for the most deaths? Do we not count deaths occuring from the medium outside of the lab? What about intent? -The military is looking at both solid state and pumped dye mediums for weapons grade lasers, i.e. How many people die a year from lead poisoning vs being shot? -both deaths are directly attributable to lead in the body, but they are counted differently in actuarian tables.
Anyway, I'll throw Flourine out there, simply because it's nasty stuff I wouldn't work with if you paid me.
