See I'm still not convinced on death by hydrochloric acid as our stomachs are already full of the stuff

Stomach acid is diluted and made of several kinds of acids, like potassium chloride and sodium chloride. Drinking any of these acids straight is more then the body can handle

The stomach is protected by the epithelial cells, which produce and secrete a bicarbonate-rich solution that coats the mucosa. Bicarbonate is alkaline, a base, and neutralizes the acid secreted by the parietal cells, producing water in the process. This continuous supply of bicarbonate is the main way that your stomach protects itself from autodigestion (the stomach digesting itself) and the overall acidic environment....So when hydrochloric acid is ingested it's more than your stomach can handle..
Do you understand now? Do you have any questions about sulfuric acid consumption that Google could just as easily answer too?

Uh... Stomach acid is actually pretty concentrated. pH at about 2.

Stomach acid is ph 1 and sulfuric is about ph 2.1

Your stomach secretes hydrochloric acid, but the pH of your stomach isn't necessarily the same as the pH of the acid! The pH of your stomach varies, from 1-2 up to 4-5. When you eat, the stomach releases proteases and hydrochloric acid to aid in digestion. By itself, the acid doesn't really do much for digestion, but the proteases that cleave proteins work best in an acidic environment or low pH, so after a high-protein meal, your stomach pH may drop to as low as 1 or 2. However, buffers quickly raise the pH back to 3 or 4. After the meal has been digested, your stomach pH returns to a resting level of about 4 or 5. Your stomach secretes acid in response to food, so first thing in the morning you can expect a slightly acidic stomach pH, but not an acidic level representative of pure hydrochloric acid.
