Mercury is quite poisonous, but not nearly as bad as everyone thinks. Work quickly, be careful not to touch it, and clean up any spills immediately and you're fine.

Depends what you're looking for. Take a look at the Halloween costume market. You can buy an entire outfit for $30. It's not likely to last more than a few nights, but if that's all you want, you're f ...
