... look how normal i turned out! (twitch - twitch)

<snicker!> Yeah...it was really fun to use it like mouthwash - it would turn gold fillings silver! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <JK!> Although I wonder how much mercury I got in my system doing the distillation of mercury experiment from my chemistry set in my little bedroom. Does anyone remember when you could buy radium paint? Not the cheesy glow-in-the-dark stuff, but the paint with radium in it? It came in a little 1/10 oz. bottle from...I think it was Edmund Scientific. They shipped it to you in the mail. I wonder how much exposure all those postal workers got? Times certainly do change!
