Did You Know?


This episode is partially based on the 2010 Duke University faux sex thesis controversy, which was a 42-page PowerPoint document written by Karen Owen, a 24-year-old senior. The document was privately written and distributed to just a few friends. During homecoming weekend, one of the friends forwarded it, and it was widely circulated. The bulk of the controversy surrounded whether she invaded her partners' rights to privacy, and whether the subjects of Owen's faux thesis had a right to sue. See more »


The syringe Tinta used to inject an air bubble into his jugular vein wasn't nearly big enough to cause a fatal air embolism. Fatal air embolisms are very rare when dealing intravenous access and are virtually impossible with standard sized syringes, Tinta appeared to have a standard 10 mL syringe. It would take at least 100 mL of air injected very quickly to cause a fatal embolism. See more »
