    Mercury comes from the planet Mercury thats why we call it Mercury, Duh
    We never had any mercury in the olden times. And it is not a coincidence that when the planet Mercury came as close as it has ever been in it's orbit around the sun and the earths gravitational force pulled some of the planet down and when it hit our atmosphere it scattered like heavy dust all over the place, that the thermometer was invented. Records were then able to be kept for temperatures because mercury rises with heat. Now as for the fish, when the mercury hit the water in lakes and rivers being shiny as it was, well, the fish ate it because we all know that they like shiny things. The easy way to tell if there is mecury in the waters near you is to go fishing on a very hot day. You will notice that the fish don't bite. This is because the mercury that they swallowed rises with the heat and gets stuck behind there thalliums and makes their mouths lock shut. The same thing happens in humans when they eat a fish that has mercury in it. As the temperatures go up so does the mercury, but unlike fish that are in the water people are to heavy to float in the air so the mercury lodges against our thalliums which in turn keeps us from being hungry then we don't eat and we die! I hope this has given you some insight on the cause and effects of Mercury, so please read your consumption advisories and heed there warnings.:wink:

    Now that is some funny stuff. Where do you find this sort of thing, or could it possibly be original, hatched out of that vast imagination you have?:wink:

    I thought this is the last day of April, not the first day!

    And to think all this time i had been taught methel mercury came from the decomposition of organics. Kinda like what happens in our rivers where dams have been put in and the sediment gathers. I had no idea it fell out of the sky.:wink:
