If ever there was a place where the "Ironic" tag should have been used, this was it. Disappointing, subby.

Reverend J: /Refused to work with KCN or NaCN, way to easy to accidentally kill yourself with it
//That and HF, another horrid way to die


I got the full safety training on use of hydrofluoric acid, including having a tube of Calcium Gluconate antidote gel in case of accidental exposure (slather that on, and get to the hospital). Fortunately, I never did need to use it for my work.
But I was appalled to discover anyone can buy that sh*t online at "Chemical Supermarket".

http://www.chemical-supermarket.com/Hydrofluoric-Acid-49-250ml-Semi-G r ade-p32.html

Precautions:
**This is the most dangerous industrial acid in existence**
Attacks calcium in bones. Strong irritant to eyes and skin. Highly corrosive to skin and mucous membranes. Toxic by inhalation and ingestion. Will attack glass specifically and generally any silicon-containing materials.


Chemical Supermarket's motto is: "Making High Tech Materials & Chemicals Available to Everyone".
Everyone? Like terrorists?
Some stuff should be restricted!
As for sodium cyanide, I walk past huge sacks/barrels of that stuff when I visit gold mines, as it is used to dissolve the gold out of the rock. And I stay the hell away from it, other than to assess whether or not the company has the proper handling protocols in place.

would you play a game where you and nine of your family members or friends give me $1 each and I randomly select the winner. I will then give him $4 and pocket the rest for myself.

Reverend J: buzzcut73: ElBarto79: ModernLuddite: Can you just get cyanide?

I thought rat poison was basically cyanide?

No, rat poison is usually brodificoum, which is a variant of wafarin (better known as coumadin)

Cyanide is kind of available, because it is used in lab settings quite a bit, but I'm not sure what hoops one has to go through to get some these days.

It's pretty straight forward, normally if a school or a lab already has the paperwork you just order it and it comes in a bottle with a skull and cross bones and a bunch of other warnings. Since it's so toxic you wouldn't have to steal much at all.

/Refused to work with KCN or NaCN, way to easy to accidentally kill yourself with it

Kind of hard to get any research lab IH or Environmental Compliance type work done if you refuse to work with compounds that might kill you.The best bet is to learn the hazards, and not be stupid. Don't fear things, but do respect them is what I always tell people.

This one gets green-lit AND there was a suitable replacement in the Queue? For shame admins, for shame.

Maybe we should check his bank account for any sudden huge deposits.
