lol, I'm trollbait

Edit: I was putting some carbon ribbon in the EZ* this afternoon, and started wondering if I could homebrew CA accelerator. I ended up on Wikipedia, and couldn't help noticing the line near the bottom that reads "Toluidines are used in the production of dyes. They are a component of accelerators for cyanoacrylate glues. They are toxic and are suspected human carcinogens."

me, I've been getting this stuff on my fingers and probably breathing in a fair amount of vapor. Just a heads-up for you guys, worth a mention on the show? Or maybe a general discussion on safety with chemicals?

edit2: You can use water with a little baking soda as accelerator. The CA solution is slightly acidic, and when you raise the pH, it cures. Sounds way less tumour inducing
