Were those old thermometers that had mercury in them dangerous?

    Yes and No.  In the glass the mercury was harmless since it was contained.  However, the problem arose because the thermometers were pretty fragile and would brake when dripped  When the mercury is out then it was able to be exposed to people and THAT is very dangerous.
