They also said mercury was safe for fillings in your teeth now it cost 500 dollars to get one tooth replaced with porcelain .subeIn high school back in the 60s, we had a jar almost pint size full of mercury. We could stick our fingers in it and not get them wet, shine coins, whatever. There were small plastic mazes with a drop of mercury in them. The youth leader in our church explained the Trinity with three drops of mercury in his hand becoming one when wiggled together.

A couple of years ago some kids broke a mercury thermometer in the street. Hazmat was called in to clean it up and the site was monitored for quite some time. That was the government there to help (sarc.)
