Don't worry. Unless you've been eating your monitor.

The real problem with mercury is that it tends to combine with just about any metal it touches. This process, called amagalmation, basically causes an alloy of the metal and mercury to be formed just from physical contact. As you can imagine, any alloy of mercury will be a very soft metal. It is for this reason that we don't allow mercury on submarines (we even control the miniscule amount that is found in fluorescent bulbs).

In my humble opinion, using something like mercury would be bad for your health if it broke, and its bad for the environment in the long run. If there were some way to use Oil and tiny ball bearings though...

Mercury is extremely poisonous. If you got some on your hands while working with it, the toxins in it alone would be enough to make you very sick

If mercury is spilled, it's extremely easily to clean up

You could pour out a jug of mercury and the inside would be completely dry.

Sick is putting it lightly

Mercury makes you mentally retarded and/or paralyzed

Not to threadjack, but I was considering other household liquids as a substitute to water; Namely Isopropyl Alcohol and Hydrogen Peroxide. Both have lower freezing points, but I know nothing of their conductivity of heat. I ask this because I am contemplating making a loop that has a reservoir outside in the winter and harnesses Old Man Winter for more Mhz.

If you keep your computer running constantly, you won't have a problem with water cooling outside. If you let the flow and heat source stop, then you will get freezing in the loop, and you would have to bring everything inside to let it thaw.

Your other concern with using the winter to cool would be condensation. The forums on peltier devices and phase change rigs should have some good info on preventing condensation.
