SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
Just when I though the end of the semester was getting tough, the universe had to just toss me a massive middle finger.
News Channel 8 and The Connecticut Post has reported that there is a "Major Hazmat Situation" on BlackRock Turnpike that is causing the area to be evacuated. Apparently, some chemical called gallium trichloride spilled all over the place and should not be inhaled. Local businesses like BJ's (I still laugh at the name) have been shut down and evacuated.
Osha reports that acute exposure to gallium trichloride can include wheezing, coughing, itching throat, difficult or labored breathing, sense of suffocation, burning chest pain, and, in more severe cases, cyanosis, which is blue tint to skin and mucous membranes. It can also cause laryngeal edema (a buildup of fluid); respiratory arrest or delayed pulmonary edema, or a buildup of fluid in the lungs. Gastrointestinal symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or bloody stools."
Reports say no one has been hurt, but come on. I've seen enough horror movies and thrillers to know that this is a government cover up and the scene probably looks something like this:
Doesn't it figure, I survive the flu from one of my friends only to turn around and get caught up in the middle of some cheesy horror plot and eventual government cover up.
