Leave it to those oh-so-wacky Japanese to find uses for used up florescent tubes smiling

Fluorescent bulbs use mercury vapor. This is harmless in normal operation, but can be toxic if the bulb is broken. A broken bulb will mildly contaminate the local air (so the room should be ventilated) and the glass fragments are toxic.

Adding to that, the tubes contain chemicals that stops your blood from clotting if cut by the glass.
So those guys would of still been bleeding long after the fight was finished and
everyone had gone home. A seriously fucked up bunch of individuals......

The phosphor lining the inside of the glass is pretty toxic. Maybe that's the stuff that stops blood from clotting. I know if you get enough phosphors in you it is very un-good.

If you notice in all the shots of the tubes breaking both of them have their eyes and mouths tightly closed. Also who's to say these are real tubes. I'm sure they could of brought some glass tubes, filled them with baby powder and smashed away. Still very entertaining and would cut you up but small cuts heal very quickly.

Who knows indeed. Whether or not they are real light tubes it is still stupid as hell. Maybe enough green tea and raw fish diet will ward off any oxidant effects.

BTW, phosphorus poisoning does not effect blood coagulation but will make a person squirt violently from both ends until they die. There is no antidote or treatment either and it doesn't take a whole lot to be fatal. That applies to white or yellow phosphorus used in incendiaries, bombs, fireworks and matches, not sure about the stuff used in light tubes. EPA considers them hazardous material due to the mercury vapor content but also states the glass shards pose more of a hazard than the chemical contents.
