    In the $5 bin at the local Walgreens I find a CD case that contains LEAD :eek:

    Strange

    I wonder why a CD wallet would contain lead.

    Wow is right! So CD wallets are usually used in cars. I guess I will have to install a sink and a detox station as well. Hopefully that option isn't too expensive:eek:

    Probably the same reason they used lead in hat blocking. To give form.

    Now you know why this guy was considered as mad as a hatter. <sorry>

    *Looks back on my past of dealing with molten lead, casting lead, machining lead, and handling lead in quantities of ~60lbs with no gloves*

    Yikes. Hope I'm golden. I did wash my hands with lavasoap though afterwards...

    Ah, but where did you eat lunch? How was that space ventilated?

    Did you wear a mask when working with molten lead?

    My Father was a typographer, but that's as far as I will go. :(
