But you get your choice of drink size!

So, from what I could glean on the internet, an "RSA" is the NZ version of the VA in the United States.  Someone more Kiwi could clear that up though.

So, if your friend drinks her "sprite" and immediately begins choking and gagging, she's been accidentally poisoned. When YOU then voluntarily drink some of the liquid you now know to have caused at least one incident of choking and gagging, you have deliberately poisoned yourself.

This label should be printed on the world:

Drinking unidentified fluids may result in choking, burning death.

After it was served to Murphy, she was taken to hospital along with her friend Heatha Anderson who sipped from the bottle after Murphy reacted badly.

This is exactly what you don't farking do.

The drink contains Benzalkonium Chloride.

The poison had been put in the bottle by a cleaner, then placed on the bar and later mistakenly put into the drinks fridge.

I'm far from "Captain Safety" in lab work, but the angriest I ever got was when a grad student at a field site was prepping samples and was putting the waste acids and solvents in an empty soda bottle because he forgot to bring a proper container. He saw I was mad so he ripped the label off and wrote "waste" on it. I told him to leave and come back once he figured out how stupid what he was doing was (we had other bottles of exactly the same drink around).

Hey, I've been there before, too.

I remember working at a Burger King. One time, this guy at the drive through ordered cherry Pepsi. I looked all over the place, but couldn't find any.

SO, I just put dishwasher soap in his cup and hoped he wouldn't notice.

He never came back, so I guess it all worked out.

Iirc, Benzalkonium Chloride is the chemical which is used to catalyze polyester resin. This is used in the process of making cultured marble counter tops. Or maybe it's Benzalkonium Peroxide. It's been a while now.

I was no chem major in college, but isn't it all too possible that acid can react with other acids and/or aluminum and create a SERIOUS chemical reaction?

Not to mention that if you drink it, it could kill you.

The restaurant violated a major rule for ALL businesses by not keeping cleaning products in clearly marked container. However, the idea of doing something harmful right after someone else did the exact same thing with the result of pain is the definition of stupid. Third point, the second lady may have thought the first lady simply swallowed wrong (down the windpipe).

Now real stupidity was the two cops who arrested the cook, who fixed their eggs for some time, one day because he put too much red pepper on their eggs. They always got the eggs made that way, but that day they decided he 'assaulted' them. The charges were dropped when the judge decided that by eating all the eggs and leaving before coming back to arrest the cook proves no assault took place.

Twenty dollars a week in restitution.

And I got a 110k settlement from getting a broken leg from an inattentive college kid driving her daddy's car home from the mall.

Terrible story. I'm amazed that they don't have insurance for such cases as this.

Just before ordering the drink Murphy was overheard saying that anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

ok let me see... you just saw your friend going into major convulsion, foaming on the mouth and turned pale right after sipping on her drink.. therefore the logical thing to do is to of course try that drink yourself!

Makes perfect sense!

OTOH, kudos to Julie Taipeti who seemed to have taken personal responsibility for the accident instead of just 'lawyering up' and try to find a scapegoat like most people would.

"Kvothe! What are the three rules of the chemist?"

"Measure twice. Label clearly. Eat elsewhere."

It's a novel, not a lab manual, but I remember wishing that my own instructors had been that concise and to the point.

So basically, they ran out of syrup at the fountain? It's Sprite, so you can't really tell until you taste it.

Actually it's more along the lines of the American Legion or Veterans of Foreign Wars.   It's the "Returned Services Association."     There's one in just about every town in Aus.   In some towns it's the only place you can get a drink (or in some cases a decent dinner).   I've spent time in a couple of them.
