First of all, if you really have 240 lbs of mercury please be careful, since “mercury and most of its compounds are extremely toxic and must be handled with care” and never flush it down the toilet.

What would you do if you have 240 lbs of mercury? I could think of a 100 things that I want do with it but CodyDon of Cody’s Lab literally flush it down the toilet, well not an actual toilet but a toilet that he setup to maintain the safety of his experiment.

And as expected, aside from wrecking havoc to the environment, flushing mercury down the toilet won’t do any good. But really, if you ever you had a chance of getting any amount of mercury, please do not try this at home.
