Default Additional dangers in repairs

It's not enough to watch out for electrical shock, dead vermin,
or radiation exposure; you need to be aware of chemical poisoning.

Great article!

Though one of the commenters suggested an alternate theory:

"It's also possible that the 'crust or a crystalline residue' was simply
some old mold, as some forms of it can cause acid like trips. Coupled
with the fact that the device was found in a 'cold dark closet... damp,
lightless, conditions' it most certainly points to the mold theory
rather than old LSD.
By the way LSD does not survive for 50 years in a damp environment, if
anything it only a dry moisture free storage. Not saying that the LSD
find is impossible, but reading in between the lines of the article, one
can conclude otherwise."

There is a famous episode of poisoning by the ergot fungus that caused major mental illnesses back in a small town in France in 1951.

Apparently a wet spring led to mold on the wheat, and hundreds of people became ill. Some never recovered.
