As absurd as this may sound, both me and my friends used to chew on those tabs after drinking the contents. They're fun to flick with your tongue, bend in half, etc. It was only last year that I discovered the horrid things that can come of this behavior. I was watching The Drew Carey show, and it just so happened that I was subconsiously splitting this tab in half, then quarters, then eights... then I laughed and it was gone. Poop.

Fearing intestinal anhilation, I raced to the E.R. where I had to wait for three hours. Finally, they gave me some sort of metal-dissolvant to drink and took my x-rays. Around midnight, I was free to go home, having learned that stuff like that usually dissolves before causing any real damage, unless it gets caught in one's throat or windpipe.
