SEINFELD's "Death by Envelope" Theory Put to The Test

If you follow my articles at all, you know I'm a fan of Mathew Patrick's Game Theory and Film Theory channels on YouTube. This week he posted a video that tests how realistic the Seinfeld Season 7 Finale is. If you're not obsessed with the "Show About Nothing" or haven't already binge-watched it all on Hulu, the episode ends with George Costanza's fiance dropping dead from licking the glue on old, discontinued envelopes. In classic internet over-thinking fashion, MatPat dives into the science of whether or not licking envelopes could poison an adult female, and just how many envelopes it would take to cause death.
