I am reminded of the guy in chemistry graduate school who believed chemicals were so dangerous he was afraid to touch them.

Well, he could use silicone or neoprene gloves. Oh wait--those gloves are made of chemicals! Did anybody ever point out that his skin was in constant contact with a mixture of Nitrogen, Oxygen (which makes things combustible!), Carbon Dioxide, water vapor, and other trace compounds? (That mixture, as you might have guessed, is air.)
