LOL yes it would not be good for a human although you would probably have to eat a whole tube of it, but yea its toxic.

I'm curious why you are so interested...

Considering you're supposed to avoid skin contact... I doubt you can eat it.

Most TIM are conductive metals like silver, it shouldn't be lethal, but having too much of that in your body isnt ideal, see this link:

If you ate ceramique however, it should just go through the digestive system and get expelled via defecation(pooping), and nothing would happen for the most part.

You might not be as hot outside either

if you plan on overclocking I would start with 2 monster drinks and see how that goes while mowing the lawn. If you feel dizzy just stop mowing and go take a break and eat some more thermal paste

Would it take longer to cure you if you ate Arctic Silver 5 than eating MX-2?
