    If it was a mercury thermometer it would be a silvery liquid, otherwise I think they are mostly alcohol, mainly for safety.
    As far as getting mercury poison, unless you ingest it or get it in a cut, there isn't enough to get everyone sick.

    ONLY THE SILVER LIQUID IS MERCURY.

    WHY DO YOU TAKE SCIENCE IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT MERCURY LOOKS LIKE?
