  •  By the way, I've had exactly one (0+ / 0-)

    mercury thermometer in my lifetime.  I can't possibly count how many light bulbs I've bought, used, broken and otherwise been exposed to over the course of my life.

    I was on a job site where some young men were fucking around on a 20 foot ladder and one thought it would be fun to toss the bulb down at one of his buddies to see if he could catch it.  His buddy turned out to suck at catching on the fly.  The bulb shattered everywhere.  None of them even had a clue that there are hazardous materials in CFLs.  They thought that the glass was their worst problem.  Over time, this will be an issue amongst the population writ large if we do not move on to safer technology.
