You threw them into the bin? Isn'y one of the main points in this thread to dispose of them properly?

This all seems a bit ridiculous. If they are as dangerous as people have said they wouldn't be sold. Scientists/Governments aren't trying to kill us! If it was found that there was a significant risk involved with them they would be pulled. Nonetheless an interesting topic. I've dropped a few of these energy saving globes and no poisoning around me People have been exposed to all kind of crap before, Mercury can't compare to some of it. There not going to kill us, the world isn't going to end in 2012 and the government won't chip Americans

This is old news.
I remember having mercury in our old thermometer by our side door when I was a kid.... didn't destroy us though.
I think the forum tittles here on this site are a bit over dramatic.
