    I meant... if that powder gets in your lungs. I can imagine those microscopic shards of glass cutting you from inside as you breathe and what`s inside it probably causes cancer if you breathe it in. It`s all powdery.

    wicked. It`s times like these I wish I could be on a Japanese game show (human tetris would be my #1 choice).

    this isn`t a game show. this is a show where people show off stuff, like crazy high endurance or a special skill

    A perfect demonstration of what happens when pure, unbridled talent (genius?) is nurtured and developed by years and years of hard work and dedication.

    ...no, wait..

    Don`t worry, Lady. I`m sure he won`t die of cancer. Maybe falling off of a building to show off, but that`s a diff story.

    yeah its all powdery and stuff.. has to cause cancer.. eeeh.. no!

    ever been sweeping dust? bet you got cancer too now.. that powdery stuff basically is just paint on the inside of the tube so the blue light created by these bulbs gets filtered and out comes white light.. not healthy maybe.. but causing cancer?

    oh yeah and by the way.. japanese wrestlers do that all the time :)

    Did it remind anyone else of that? No? No one has any idea what I`m talking about?

    Like something from a Kraftwerk video concept. And yes thecranberry- they are filled with mercury based compounds, which generally speaking aren`t too good.

    Actually doesn`t hurt at all to smash these on you. And the coating is not terribly harmful. Its like a magic trick, just an illusion of pain and possible bodily harm.

    Fluorescent lights work by exciting mercury vapor.

    These still have mercury in them and it is toxic.

    Hat makers in England used to use mercury to put put a shine on the hats they made, The Mercury poisoning made them go mad. Thus the phrase "Mad as a hatter".

    Hmm.. Although they use mercury vapor, it`s still a liquid, that and bromine are the only two elements that are liquid under standard conditions.

    ruswut, ive seen peridoic elements with 4 elemetns in liquid form, and i was thinking "arent there only 2?"
    i guess its debatable. and, my sister swallowed mercury from a thermometer (not the alcohol ones, mercury_) and somehow she was fine. maybe thats why shes the way she is now (hurts me alot and is very odd as well as minipulating me mind)

    I know that; as you said It`s a "vapor", NOT A GAS!! Totally different. Gases and vapors are way different.

    they are filled with a gas.. let it be argon, neon or whatever -on you find in the periodi table.. and then they simply add just a tiny drop of mercury at the end of fabrication and close the whole thing..

    now this s@@@ i would watch!

    seriously, tv, is it so hard to make shows that are ACTUALLY DANGEROUS to a degree? like that show in russia where you have to drive a "stolen" car away from the cops for half an hour and if you win you get to keep the car. if you lose, you get a savage beating, but that`s fun too!

    stay zany, japan.

    No way those are Florescent Bulbs. Glass aside, they`re filled with mercury gas. Cancer much?
