Fred once told me a brief story about the installation of the new raised-floor computer
room for the alice machine.   

He had requested that the floor be wet-mopped before the tiles were installed.  When
the installer informed Fred that they weren’t going to bother, Fred obtained a small
bottle of elemental mercury from his office and showed it to the installer.

The installer had the choice of wet-mapping the floor, or cleaning up a mercury spill
in moon suits. He relented.
