In Reply to: mercury dust- PLEASE HELP! posted by steve on September 28, 2000 at 20:57:47:
: just a day ago i was handling a florecent lightbulb which inisde every florecent light there is something called "mercury dust" if you dont know. I think I got some on me, but im not sure. It is(Or so I heard) deadly if it gets on your skin. How can you tell if you have mercury dust on your skin?
This is what happens when you breath through you mouth. Brain damage. Be careful all you kids out there. Breath through your nose. Always.
Seriously. It's not deadly and it doesn't pass through the glass. You probably just got some ordinary dirt dust on you. Go wash your hands, you hypochondriac freak.
How come you never worry about all the radiation from your monitor and pc when you are on the computer and surfing the internet? Hmmmm?
