The CFL mercury nightmare

• Financial Post(Canada)
How much money does it take to screw ina compact fluorescent light bulb? About $4.28 for the bulb and labour -- unless you break the bulb. Then you, like Brandy Bridges of Ellsworth, Maine, could be looking at a cost of about $2,004.28

When I was a kid, we used to play with mercury out of the old mercury thermometers. We used to watch the beads of it roll around in our hands. Picking it up with our fingers was next to impossible.

Do you think I am the way I am from mercury poisoning? Actually, I think it's from the DDT sprayed in the nearby farm fields.
