02/15/2005 - Playing with Mercury!!!

Liquid Metal - that's the best word to describe mercury!  This is one of the most curious elements known to exist - it's heavier than most metals and it's a liquid!  In fact, it's so dense that even lead floats on top of it!  It's high surface tension makes it feel like pushing your fingers through solid Jello-O.

**No, mercury is indeed safe in minute quantities - only continued exposure over a long period of time causes harm**
