Friday Fun

List Universe provides a list of the Top 10 Scientists Killed or Injured by Their Experiments. The list includes Karl Scheele, who liked to taste the elements he discovered and probably died of mercury poison, the inventor of the kaleidoscope, and Alexander Bogdanov, the Russian revolutionary and physician who gave himself one too many blood transfusions in a quest for eternal life.
