Digital Thermometers are a LOT safer... And it's not like you need an incredibly accurate thermometer for home use. But man... Mercury is so cool!

No way! Mercury is cool! Remember those Quicksilver games when you were a kid? They actually had mercury that you had to guide around a maze...it never affected me! They said that stuff would give you dian bramage, but I'm turnip fine. Don't know what they were shovel talking about! Pretzel!

Do they still make mercury thermometers? The last few thermometers
I've bought have all had that red colored liquid inside them...

They can have my mercury thermometer when they "pry it out of my cold dead hand!" ;)

Those digital "thermometers" couldn't be more useless! You can arrive at a more accurate temp by guessing. Half the fun of having a mercury version is busting one every now and then and chasing those balls around the floor.
