    In general, Drinking Liquid Mercury is not Dangerous, in fact its Mercury Vapor that is Deadly.

    This because when pure Liquid Mercury is ate/drunk, your stomach cant only absorb about ... 0.5-2% of it which is not a lot, not enough to kill you at least. Since Mercury is very dense, it will go through the intestines and into the toilet basicly.

    But if Mercury Vapor is present your body can absorb up to 40-60% of it, which will cause the Madness and Death he said, with other major effects beening profuse sweating, high blood pressure and hair lose.

    Yes, Mercury interrupts certain nerve endings in the Brain which causes Insanity.

    Ask yourself why the Hatter in Alice in Wonderland is described as the Mad Hatter.
    You will learn that hats in Victorian times, were made of felt. The felt was processed with mercury. As consequence of ingesting the fumes, over time, the hatters became insane.

    or the many stories of violent insane cats around the ports of japan, where mercury was dumped into the ocean and the concentration of it increased up the food chain. water-->fish-->cats. makes lolcatz look tame
    everything is mathematical.
