HANOVER, Germany – A German man has died almost a year after being struck in the backside by a mysterious stranger wielding a poisoned umbrella, The Local Germany reported Friday.

The Local quoted the newsmagazine Der Spiegel as saying an autopsy and toxicological tests carried out on the victim were expected to suggest mercury poisoning as the cause of death.

The unidentified 40-year-old man was diagnosed with mercury poisoning several weeks after he was attacked in Hanover by a man he described as a slim stranger with a Band-Aid on his face.

He spent months in a coma, then seemed to improve, but died suddenly Wednesday..."

Dimethylmercury can kill you from merely inhaling the fumes

Is this the same mercury that is in the new improved government light bulb?

No it isn’t. Not possible to use something that rates a “4” on both the “health” and “flammability” NFPA 704 chart in something like a light bulb anyhow; heat source would make it explode too readily, that is if the fumes don’t kill you first. The CFLs contain elemental mercury, which is bad enough although not acutely poisonous (all fluorescent lights have mercury vapor, BTW, even the long tubes).

I’m surprised there hasn’t been an implementation of off the shelf mini radio controlled choppers combined with either an aerosol spray like a crop duster or even a high pressure delivery dece like an Airsoft gun.

Those small RC choppers are silent, can be flown from a smartphone, just buzz your target and gas them with something that leaves no trace.

Sounds like something from the KGB. The bandaid on the face is so memorable, you won’t remember the face. That is its purpose.

wow.

Does this cause one to collapse with a bright red face with white around the forehead? Does it mimic arsenic?

Interesting about the bandaid. Could be some other unusual marker like a big tattoo (fake), bandanna, facial hair, etc.

Yes, some huge glaring trait that would get all the attention during the very brief encounter.

IIRC, a Soviet agent took out a target in London using an umbrella point and ricin poison.

So the question I would have is why him? I mean the German man who was killed. What are the facts about him? What did he do? What did he know? What was his position, station in life? Who did he know?

You shouldn’t worry so much — it is an IMPROVED government lightbulb.

Just watch those congresscritters scramble when these improved lightbulbs happen to get damaged. They probably insist on having the conventional lightbulbs in their offices.

Remember when you played with mercury on your hand? Well, not *this* much mercury, enough to float a cannonball.
