  Speaking of that. A few years ago they had a plastic bottle of mercury
sitting over at the surplus disposal at Patrik AFB (part of Kennedy Space
Center). The bottle had been sitting for a long time and gotten brittle.
Someone tried to pick it up and it shattered and spilled mercury
everywhere. They made everyone stay exactly where they were and called the
haz mat crew. They came and made everyone strip, yeah, naked! Male and
female. And then made them walk out into the parking lot where they sprayed
them down with firehoses (in front of the rapidly gathering crowd!) So
this is what you have to look forward to Sellam!
