For some informative reading...
GOOGLE... "Toluene CAS#108-88-3"

Emergency Overview
-------------------Toluene--------------------------
POISON! DANGER! HARMFUL OR FATAL IF SWALLOWED. HARMFUL IF INHALED OR ABSORBED THROUGH SKIN. VAPOR HARMFUL. FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND VAPOR. MAY AFFECT LIVER, KIDNEYS, BLOOD SYSTEM, OR CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. CAUSES IRRITATION TO SKIN, EYES AND RESPIRATORY TRACT.

But...it's not really that bad once you build up some tolerance...

...Since my minor exposure, I have developed a curious third nostrel...
but, the good news, it's on the back of my head...sort'a like a snokel...
'makes for more convenient breathing with my face burried in a bowl of Cheerios!

A few drops of magic "T" mixed into some Aqua-seal, or Goop, (both of which contain, you guessed it, toluene) thins it out and promotes a very rapid cure while emitting an inordinate amount of unquestionably poisonous fumeage that would turn away even the likes of Timothy Leary, Keith Richards, and Guissepe Monsanto...
Enjoy the "trip"!
