worst tasting thing ever!

Off-topic conversations and chit-chat.

Reading through some of the posts about mishaps people have suffered, I don't think anyone has mentioned the worst thing they have tasted...

Many years ago at the start on my career I was pouring some pyridine into a beaker. That last drop seemed to bounce off the surface onto my bottom lip. Without thinking about it I licked the drop off, as you would sugar from a doughnut.
I have eaten some pretty foul tasting food but nothing compares to the taste of pyridine!

I did something similar when working on some tubing on an instrument. I first blew it out with some Dustoff, then proceeded to blow through it with my mouth. I now know why the additive is called a bitterent! :lol:
The past is there to guide us into the future, not to dwell in.
1) naltrexone
2) paracetamol
3-inf) the entries above and below this one
Thanks,

Pyridine used to be added to alcohol to denature it, now they use something that is not as toxic.
