Mercurial Stories is a flash fiction literary journal created to get writers writing. The concept was inspired by Ray Bradbury’s advice to fledgling writers: write a short story every week. Mathematically, he reasoned, it is nearly impossible to write 52 terrible stories. This goes along with the theory that striving for quantity instead of quality is the better approach for creatives.

'Mad as a Hatter' The felt hat industry has been traced to the mid 17th century in France, and it was probably introduced into England some time around A story passed down in the hat industry gives this account of how mercury came to be used in the process: In Turkey camel hair was used for felt material, and it was discovered that the felting process was speeded up if the fibers were.

I'm glad I picked this up, as Maria Mercurial is a stand-out character in Shadowrun. This module really gives you some good information on her background, so glad I picked it up on the cheap. I'm starting to use her in my own game, and I think you really need this to understand her.5/5(1).

Felt is a textile material that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers together. Felt can be made of natural fibers such as wool or animal fur, or from synthetic fibers such as petroleum-based acrylic or acrylonitrile or wood pulp-based d fibers are also common.

Felt has special properties that allow it to be used for a wide variety of purposes. Mercury has many uses besides its well-known use in thermometers, barometers, and manometers.

It is used in arc lamps, switches, and fungicides. Gold extraction and other industrial applications use mercury (Windholz et al., ; ACGIH, ). It is a component of submarine atmospheres and some solid-fuel rocket propellants.

Symptoms depend upon the type, dose, method, and duration of exposure. They may include muscle weakness, poor coordination, numbness in the hands and feet, skin rashes, anxiety, memory problems, trouble speaking, trouble hearing, or trouble seeing. High-level exposure to methylmercury is known as Minamata disease.

Methylmercury exposure Complications: Kidney problems, decreased intelligence. Fifty-nine cases of chronic mercurialism were found on medi- cal examination of hatters employed in five representative felt hat factories. Four of the twenty-one men engaged in mix- ing and blowing; 8 of the 34 coners; 6 of the 29 hardeners, and 33 of the starters, wetters-down, and sizers were so diag.

These symptoms of chronic mercury poisoning must be clearly differentiated from those of acute mercurial poisoning, which rarely arises in industry and usually results from the use of drugs.

The insidious systemic effects of mercury (Hg) and its compounds have been well known from both occupational and accidental exposures, and, oddly, from medical use. 3 The hazards of mercury being released from dental amalgam (DA) fillings have been repeatedly under debate, but no consensus between pro- and anti-amalgamists has been reached.
