CFLs are quite normal here, but I do not like the color.
I hear the stupid scare about Mercury in the USSA, and calling hazmat teams when a CFL breaks...Geeesh, rolling the balls of it and coating coins was a favorite childhood pastime.
Is that why I am now a stupid old fart?

A very dear friend of mine would have a disturbing negative reaction to exposure to the light from CFLs... it would trigger a neurological event much like a seizure... it was absolutely heartbreaking to witness.

No sir this is mercury gas not liquid. If you breathe it in its a whole lot worse than playing with the liquid The tubes have 150000000 times the concentration that you should ever be allowed to be exposed. These mercury vapor lamps are pure evil that GE and the EPA want to make us
All use over and over than have to recycle them exactly how they say or get in trouble

Some as swipe like this should have dropped off these lights in front of the local EPA office. Or the local demoncrap office holders office. Or the newspaper office. Freak them out. Make them look at their mercury filled glass tubes and be afraid

These losers poison children Probably illegals who just didn’t want to pay the recycling fees
