It's just overdose. No one intends to overdose. Once there is intent it's called suicide or attempted suicide. I hate the media. Go see Dark Knight this week.

Can't wait for Dark Knight. And I think they said it was accidental overdose on prescription drugs so, I think, it has little more sence, but why would anyone take more of a drug than he was prescribed to, so I think we are back at the begining.

Heath Ledger aside, people who want to kill themselves can accidentally overdose?

You can attempt to overdose on a number of things for a number of reasons other than suicide, from getting a high to falling asleep. "Accidental overdose" is perfect and proper use.

Intentional overdose is why most cough syrups now require a drivers license.

Accidental overdose is the blood thinner being misapplied to newborns due to labels being incorrect.

Overdose means more than you should. Of course there are intentional as well as accidental ones.

I find it difficult to believe that people who intentionally overdose on a substance are shocked by dying from said overdose. There is no accident when a literate adult intentionally takes too many meds from a correctly labeled bottle or bottles.

That's why when I take a little extra cold medicine to knock out a persistent cold, I tell my wife "In case I die, you can have my game collection."

I think the correct wording should be "Accidental death due to overdose."

As there is probably no way to know for sure whether the overdose was intentional or not, but they are pretty sure that the dying part was unintentional.

Overdose does not mean death so to say an intentional overdose equates to the person intending suicide is a bad leap of faith. Just the other day when suffering from the most horrendous migraine I've had to date I intentionally overdosed on medication. I had no desire to die, just to stop the excruciating pain in my head. Had I died from that, the overdose would have been intentional, the dying - not so much.

I don't think you understood me (or I didn't understood you): I'm agreeing with you that "accidental overdose" sounds like pleonasm.

Dude. They're dead. I don't think anything would shock them.

I didn't say death. It's too late to be shocked by death. But dying is where that "Aw, shit!" moment occurs.

I don't think that popcorn will die from poisoning. You'll need something stronger.

Actually, I once went game by game telling my wife which friend gets which game when I die. She did not look amused and said, "Don't die."

I have that one. It is truly awful. But I had to have it, just in case.

Please, Justice League movie, get made. And please please please don't suck.
