I keep forgetting what the differences are in the over the counter pain relievers, so I made a handy chart.

Useful chart!I’ve used Tylenol (panadol) for period pain my whole life.And this ‘accidental overdose’ thing is news to me. You can have eight in a day - not sure how you’d accidentally eat more.

Well, the accidental overdose things comes from two sources: one, research has shown that liver damage starts for some people even at “safe” doses, which has recently lead the FDA here in the States to revise down the maximum allowable dose. The current guidelines recommend taking no more than 325mg at a time—that’s one tablet from the bottle in my medicine cabinet—and a maximum of 2g in 24 hours. But because of years of marketing Tylenol as “safe”—not “safer than NSAIDs,” but just generically “safe”—plus force of habit, means people take more than the recommended dose all the time. (Or because “well, my headache is really bad, so I need two” or “the pill I took an hour ago still hasn’t kicked in” or “when the hell did I take my last pill?” etc etc. After all, it’s “just” Tylenol, right?)
The other issue is that acetaminophen can be found as an ingredient in a lot of different OTC drugs. It crops up in cold and flu tablets, allergy relief tablets, in sports creams and muscle rubs, etc. Hell, my mom used to use Tylenol PM as a straight up sleeping pill every night, even though you can buy regular diphenhydramine for much cheaper. So mixing acetaminophen from different sources is easy, even if you are following the dosing instructions for each medication separately.
Here’s a article about a college student who died of acetaminophen toxicity after maxing out on Tylenol every day for several weeks because of chronic pain.

It is truly a strange thing when a steam pipe bursts under an abandoned building in the dead of winter, but that’s exactly what happened under the Clinic Building at Greystone Park State Hospital in 2007, a month before the building was unceremoniously knocked down.  The steam congregated near the ceiling of the abandoned asylum infirmary, condensing on the pipes and dripping down in regular patterns - and creating these ice stalagmites.  An hour after taking this photograph, demolition workers came into the building and chased us through the tunnels; we had to hide in an attic in 0 degree weather for hours while cops searched for us.  The next time I drove out there, there was no trace that a building had ever stood in this spot.
