spiritual experiences only happen WHEN YOU YOURSELF take the acid
if you give it to someone else, they will ultimately get all gay and think you poisoned them

HydroFLUORIC?

Hope the guy lives.  Nasty, nasty shiat to get into your system.  The only way to really deal with it is to rinse it off immediately after contact, since it absorbs into you.  As I understand it, you don't even feel the burn since one of the things it does is kill the nerve endings as it leaches into your skin, making the flesh necrotic.

Plain water won't work.  You need calcium gluconate gel and possibly a calcium chloride infusion.  Something about binding the fluorine with Ca2+ and Mg2+ ions.

Yep, it does that.  F- loves alkaline earths.  And in the surface of your skin, there is calcium--in the nerve endings.  You ever feel it (on contact).

In addition to that, HF is composed of very "small" ions.  They soak right in to the very fabric of your body.  Literally (not figuratively).  Then they seek out the more calcium.  Guess where that resides?  Yup, in your bones.

You end up with lumps of exposed flesh and bone simply dying.  Hence, the necrosis.

The best, and not-really-effective, treatment is a quick water flush, followed by slathering on calcium gluconate gel, all over the affected site.  And, as diffusion is a two-way street, that only really cuts the damage down by about half.

Dangerous stuff, that.

EDIT:   You never feel it on contact.

Aslo, HF = hydrofluoric acid.  And the alkaline earths are:  Be, Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba (oh, and radium).  Your body contains lost of calcium, and some magnesium.  That's where the F- (as HF dissociates) loves to go.  Big time, from a thermodynamic (physics) perspective.  Most metal elements are happiest when they are bound with oxygen.  You know, like in minerals--rocks, dirt,, etc.  But not the alkaline earths.  They have a greater preference for bonding with fluorine (F-) than with oxygen (O2-).  Them's just the facts.

Back in the day, when I worked at a grocery store, one of the butcher guys accidentally spilled some kinda cleaning solution into his boot.  He didn't feel a thing, but when he took his boot off 30-60 minutes later (he was at the end of his shift, hence the cleaning agent being used), his foot was all sorts of f'd up.  Would that have been something similar to this?

Probably not,  unless all the calcium in his body was turning into rocks in his blood stream.

Have HF at work, only takes a drop to wreak havoc on your existence. But alas, people don't listen and we usually take 3 or 4 people a year to the ER for exposure. Glad I don't work in the dept that uses it.

OH MOTHERfark AUGH.

Hyrdoflouric acid scares the SHIAT out of me. My advisor refuses to work with the stuff (granted, we're physics researchers, not chemists, but we do a LOT of chemistry). And some of the engineers I've seen using it in the past did... not appear to be taking the best of safety precautions.
/Saw an engineer in a clean room working at the acid bench with it, just in a big old glass tub. No lid. No nothing. I kinda moved about 30 feet away when I noticed that.

Yeah, it blocks some of your Na2+ and Ca2+ protein channels and you are basically farked.

Even worse is that is slowly continues to spread throughout the tissues.  Amputation is one treatment to keep it from spreading.

The man who did this needs to be convicted of attempted murder.  If you get HF on more than a couple % of your skin area, then almost no matter what you do it's a fatal exposure.  He was trying to kill this woman, not just maim.  Sick.

Years ago, I had someone taking food from my lunch in the break room. I tried the usual food coloring, hot sauce, etc. - still the thief persisted. So I got desperate and put 3-4 stamps of window pane between the slices of sammich meat (removed them just prior to putting it in the fridge.)

Around 2:00 in the afternoon, some office bloated, inbred cow starts drawing attention and claims she's having a stroke. Within the next hour, EMS shows up, straps her to a gurney and she's taken away amongst whispers and such. Later that week I hear she's out for 'an indefinite period for PTO/medical leave' - later hearing she was put in the psych ward and her husband left her, took the kids and she was still screwed up in the head never to return to the workplace.

Hope the ham sandwich was worth it you bloated hog :)

That was probably contact dermatitis. Lots of things aren't super irritating to skin unless you leave it wet on there for a long time. If some got inside his boot, that'd do it.

HF is much worse. Even if you wash it off immediately, it's soaked into your skin, killing nerves on its way to the bones.
