    cliffs: be careful with 9 v batteries. if you place them in a bag to recycle them be sure they don't contact anything metal, possible fire hazard.
    also don't put a 9v battery in your pocket with keys
    something i never considered.

    Got this in a Chain email today.

    Moral to the story, don't recycle your batteries toss them out with the trash.

    Batteries from smoke detecters are what we was talking about. Change them yearly regardless of life left.

    Adversely they can be used in combination with steel wool to start fires when in a pinch. Or burn your friends. Or yourself. You know. Whatever you're into.
