Copper poisoning
#1
Today whilst paying for my dinner I dropped my change in my fanta. I decided to just drink it and then tip the money out, but am now worried that I could get copper poisoning. Am I destined to go blind now, or am I simply suffering from hypochondria?

i really want to put this i the sewer but i won't Big Grin

why would you try and get the coins out once you'd put them in.
and why put them in in the first place Huh

anyway about the consequences.

all that can happen is you get verdigris on your left testicle.

right i get it now. sorry jack, they fell into a glass of fanta!
i just assumed a can or bottle lol. verdigis is the green stuff you get on copper as it erodes.


i'd have left them in the glass for who ever does the washing up. and i doubt you'd be poisoned from drinking the fanta.

I remember in school the tech teacher warned us against making bongs with copper materials from school as the fumes from the heated copper are poisonous, don't know if this is true or the teacher just did not want his supply's plundered or us all stoned............................
