The Chinese emperor Qin Shi Huang used to drink a glass of liquid mercury every day, but he thought it wasn't doing anything, so his advisors processed into more chemically active forms. That's when he started to go insane.
On the YouTube channel, Cody's Lab, Cody dipped bare hand into a tank of liquid mercury. He received so much condemnation for it, he went for blood tests afterwards and no mercury was found in his system. Liquid mercury is almost inert.
