I saw that, too (or is that three)... I also saw something similar today (or yesterday), a melted metal led thingy, and it got me thinking about making my own mercury tilt switch (perhaps an idea for someone doing the recession prop contest... Grandma may have an old mercury thremometer in the medicine cabinet).
Funny, how many of us played with it coating pennies as kids. The rule was to wash your
hands after you were done playing with it. (At least in my house) Outside of my serious
addiction to all things electronic, I've suffered no ill effects.
