School locked down after student brings thermometer to class
Boca Ciega, Florida -- A chemistry project caused a big problem at Pinellas' Seminole High School Tuesday morning.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says students were given an assignment to bring in a substance from the Periodic Table of Elements.

One student brought in mercury -- contained within a thermometer -- and the school went into lockdown.

It gets more ridiculous, from the article

"Deputies say the thermometer was discovered as the substances were checked before going through the school.

No one was put in harm's way, but a hazmat crew was there as a precaution."

This one calls it an "incident"

Re: School locked down after student brings thermometer to class
When I was in 5th grade (85) my friend busted on of the school thermometers and rolled the mercury around in his hand. Tried to get others to touch it, but we knew better lol Funny how far things have swung in the other direction.
Oh, and the teachers comment to my friend was "Chris, throw that away, you're going to make a mess" LOL

Red Mercury AKA: Animated Mercury was first discovered by alchemists who where trying to purify Mercury before they Amalgamated it with Gold.


Mercury purified through Antimony makes Animated Mercury which is an Explosive.

We used to all play with little balls of it if someone brought some to school. Those of us who had jewelry that was gold plated would roll it all over the jewelry and it would clean it up very nicely. Usually from repeated handling and divisions the mercury would get broken up into such tiny balls that they would get lost on the floor or in tiny cracks in the wood desks. I bet when that old school burned down it had pounds of mercury contained in its nooks and crannies.

A couple of years ago I went to my 50 year class reunion. There they all were but the very few who had died, all healthy but one in a wheelchair. Productive, good natured, prosperous and still active and contributing to society. One of them is a highly recognized chemist. All of them played with mercury several times in elementary school.

A lot of gold miners lived to ripe old ages, living lives of comfort bought by the gold they panned out with the help of mercury.

Historically, the people who were adversely affected by mercury exposure were those who were exposed on a daily basis in thier occupations. Or, unless you swallowed it.

Draw your own conclusions.

Our society exhibits all the insanity of the Mad Hatter. And if you don't understand what hatters have to do with it, look it up.

Re: School locked down after student brings thermometer to class
Back in the early 60's we used to play with mercury bare handed as part of science class.
It was no big deal then and it should not be now.

Oh yes! Red mercury is an HOAX!!

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

Red mercury is a 19th-century term for protiodide or iodide of mercury. It was commonly recommended for use as an antisyphilitic as late as 1913,[1] most notably during the early years of the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiments.[2] Taken orally, it caused hematemesis. Today, it continues to be used in some countries for skin lightening, causing some cases of nephrotic syndrome.[3]

The term was adopted in the 1970s from red mercuric iodide (mercury(II) iodide) as part of several hoax substances of uncertain composition purportedly used in the creation of nuclear bombs, as well as a variety of unrelated weapons systems. Red mercuric iodide is a poisonous, scarlet-red, odorless, tasteless powder that is insoluble in water.[4] However, samples of "red mercury" obtained from arrested would-be terrorists invariably consisted of nothing more than various red dyes or powders of little value, which some suspect was being sold as part of a campaign intended to flush out potential nuclear smugglers. The hoax was first reported in 1979 and was commonly discussed in the media in the 1990s. Prices as high as $1,800,000 per kilogram were reported.[5]

Soooo, an HAZMAT team, was called for a well known HOAX or for a substance that we older people played with in the school and is of common use. An a school was locked down as if someone was playing with evil nanobots or bactereological weapons. Right.
