      It's galium. It's like Mercury, it's melting point is so low that just the warmth of your body can melt it in your hand. Upvote so people can see

      I actually played with mercury from a broken thermometer as a kid, and unfortunately I am still alive.

      It's gallium, not mercury. Gallium's melting point is low enough to melt in your hand. It's nontoxic. That said, mercury is actually relativity safe to handle barehanded, as long as you don't have open wounds

      Mercury in that state is not what's dangerous. The pores in your skin are too small for mercury to permiate through. Mercury's REAL hazard is if it becomes airborne and breathed in. At that point your body readily absorbs it and you can get poisoning from it. Smile to spread the information.

      Jokes aside i think what's in their hand is Gallium. I metal that reaches its melting point in the warmth of your hand. Its safe to handle, and if you put it on anything made of tin it will make it crumble and rip like paper. (For instance, an empty soda can)

      It will be absorbed through your skin even without cuts, if that is mercury. The term mad hatter came from the middle ages when hatters were using mercury to make hats and over time the mercury on their bare hands would soak into their bloodstream causing mental disorders and death

      Diethyl-mercury will literally make you lose your mind as your cognitive functions slowly erode. You will lose your ability to function properly over the course if a few months before ultimately dying. This shit looks like Gallium, a metal that has a boiling point of roughly 30 degrees centigrade.

      This is Gallium it is okay to handle it with a bare hand. For those thinking this is mercury, they stopped using that in thermometer years ago. Gallium has a very low melting point which makes it perfect for thermometers.

      Mercury is actually harmless unless ingested and it's to heavy to be absorbed through the skin and with its high surface tension its very hard unless ingested however you should still wear gloves to be safe from any cuts or scratches

      Touching elemental mercury isn't that dangerous- you just need to make sure you dont have any cuts it can get into. Organic mercury is the one that can dissolve into your skin.

      PSA: This is Mercury, not Gallium. Mercury is used for two reasons in a thermometer: 1) it has high density so it's not as sensitive, and 2) it has a high coefficient of thermal expansion which allows us to measure the difference in height to gauge relative temperature.
