How Much Candy Would Kill You?

How much candy corn can you eat before you stand a chance to meet the Crypt Keeper?

Halloween is almost here, which means costumes, scary movies and lots of candy.

This week, the video series Reactions from the American Chemical Society tackles this spooky hypothetical question: How much Halloween candy would kill you if all eaten in one sitting?

For those of you out there who want to figure out the oral LD50 for yourself fill in the variable "W" with your own weight in pounds: 

(W*13.5)/9.3 = PIECES OF FUN SIZED CANDY

(W*13.5)/1.5 = PIECES OF CANDY CORN

Post your results down in the comments. Happy Halloween!
