    You've just become a "mad hatter"
    And hopefully, not the one from that Tim Burton movie. He reminded me more of a deranged Joker than a true Mad Hatter.
    People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff.

    Right. They eat a heck of a lot of fish so you really need to pick a species that is low in mercury. Silversides and tilapia are very low. Before I knew how much mercury (or anything about it) was in WA coho salmon, I fed it to my garters for several months. One developed symptoms of neurological damage/ tremors, etc. That snake died.

    Farmed rainbow trout has virtually no mercury but it does have PCB's.

    In a bad way? What would you recommend for a fish to be used alot? I use more fish than some of you may. At the moment it's just fish and worms.

    I edited. Just read the info in the link. If you don't see a fish listed, search for it on the site.

    Farmed fish has much lower levels. The reason tilapia doesn't have hardly any at all is that fact that they are largely vegetarians. Bluegill are loaded with it, no matter where it's caught. Methyl mercury is a by-product of air pollution and ultimately ends up in the water where it accumulates in every increasing amounts, as you go up the food chain. Since you're at the top, if you keep eating it... well... it's your body, your brain. You decide. Is eating all that fish really worth that?

    Virtually all fish on the market contains mercury. Some at low levels but it's still there. It's not even safe to eat more than two servings a month of just about all salmon except wild alaskan. Scary.

    I hear ya, and honesty don't eat bluegill alot, but I like to fry up a big batch a few times a summer. It takes so many to get a big mess, I usually fish for a month, then invite the family over and fry it all up. Its such a sweet tasting fish, best in my opinion, followed closely by Crappie!! My other way of knowing if a pond is safe is wheather or not I see frogs. Frogs are so fragile, I figure if they are alive and thriving, the water quality must be atleast descent!

    But you have to admit that our society in general has us so scared to eat anything except maybe "whole grains" its almost disgusting. You can list about any meat, and someone will have a reson not to eat too much of it. How did we survive before we had the FDA to tell us what, and how much to eat?!?

    Well it's quite simple. The polluted fish only became a problem during the 20th century.

    Oh, and there's plenty of frogs in the most polluted bodies of water around my area.
