How safe is gallium?
I've always wanted to play with gallium since it melts in your mouth and in your hands, and through the wonders of birthday money and ebay I now find myself in a position to get some. There's one problem, I know nothing about it as far as safety is concerned. Is it safe to hold or is that a bad idea like with mercury? Do I have to scrub my hands raw after holding it or where protective gear? As much as I like the idea of playing with molten metal in my hands it's definitley not worth poisoning myself over.
