Oh. My. Science.
These guys should get sponsored by a incandescent light bulb company because they're going to get very very sick in a year or three.
Seriously, there's mercury in those bulbs. I can't imagine being sliced up by thousands of little shards of glass while being engulfed in a dusty haze of mercury vapors and phosphors is good for your health. I hope those guys have good health plans, they're going to need it.
