My understanding of Mercury is that it is WAY more toxic than most things, particularly vaporized.

Be damn sure your ventilation is up to it if you choose to use it.

Years ago people were experimenting with Mercury as a weight shifting mechanism in stock car racing. It was banned on the premise that if a few drops of Mercury found their way onto the hot manifold in a wreck the vapor could be fatal to anyone nearby.

Here's more on the subject:

Google has more.
