I have about 1/2 a fl oz of mercury out in the garage, in a set of carburetor balancing gauges (mercury “carb stix”). Now, if I was to spill all of that on the floor I might worry a bit. More likely I’d just sweep it all out the door. They don’t come indoors, though. When I want to get rid of it I’ll have to take it the toxic waste recycling center, I guess.
You can get incandescent light bulbs rated for 25,000 hours that are used by the hospitality industry. If you use them for an average of 7 hours a day theyll burn out in just a little under 10 years and cost about a buck or less per bulb depending on how many you buy.
Once you stock up all youll have to do is watch out for the light bulb police wholl be monitoring everyone who might be using those unauthorized, evil incandescents!
