School Goes in to Lockdown After Thermometer is Brought for Science Project

Student brings thermometer to school as an example of mercury, to represent one of the periodic elements, bed wetters go insane. Do these morons not realize that they are surrouned by mercury all day in the form of lighting? Flouescent lamps in the light fixtures over their heads contain mercury. Any HID (high intensity discharge)lights contain mercury. Does this school have any incandescent lights that were replaced by CLF's? Those contain mercury also. What else do you expect from the finest that the government can provide.

    That’s insane. I practically bathed in mercury from science projects as a nerdy kid, and I’m ppppppppperfectly fine.
