Looks like we need to be putting tape over the terminals when throwing them in the recycle bag. This guy was lucky to get out of this house alive.

More than once I have put a battery in my pocket with keys or change. They get hot. I don't do that any more.

Another danger is the disc-type and/or button batteries. I read a report of toddlers ingesting them. and the reaction in the stomach and small intestine is terrifying. The battery can burn a hole through the lining resulting in death.

There is an ever increasing list of things that can go wrong.

The sad thing is we can never return to the more carefree days of our past.

Things may look better today but is that really so?
