Maybe I need help...

So, I just paid $6.74 via ebay to win a copy of the October 1972 National Geographic magazine. That's $1.99 for the magazine plus $4.75 shipping.

Oh, and that's a picture of a guy sitting on a pool of mercury...from that issue...I wanna read the article.

Whyyyyyy is he doing such a thing?

I think it's the Ohio Book Company, but there's a used bookstore downtown that has pretty much every issue of NG ever; going back to the second one.

Doesn't it, though, Calen?

Bdudda - I'd love to see that - preferably while wearing a hazmat suit, though.

Emily - back when the pic was taken, there was nothing dangerous about mercury. Somehow, in the past few decades, it's become deadly. It was safe to drink back then.

Mr Echt - why would you tell me that now?

Makes you wonder how soon that guy went crazy and if he killed anyone before being admitted to a psych ward.
