Living and dying on only caviar, champagne, truffles, foie gras

1) Whats the lethal dose of caviar?

2) How long could you live on only caviar and water?
2a) How long could you live on only caviar and champagne?

I've also thought this type of question with foie gras and truffles, individually and in combination with caviar and champagne.

The expression "choke on it you crazy rich bastard" came to mind while re-reading some French classic cuisine cookbooks, with casual advice to buttloads of the stuff. (One suggested clarifying fish stock with caviar, to give you an idea; another is simmering two lbs of truffles in port.)

Here is the food composition information for Osetra Caviar, Caviar Malossol, UPC: 825743940006 from the USDA Food Composition Database. I don't know how to do the math, the assumptions about health and nutrition, etc. to make use of it.

Any help? It would make a great factoid.
