    I recently noticed this as well. I can tell you that there are no FCC rules that mandate broadcasters maintain a specific volume level. It is rather annoying, i'll give you that.

    Lithium is not quite like mercury. I could be wrong but I don't think mercury has been approved and prescribed as a drug for humans for the last 40+ years.

    DVR... don't watch TV without it. I don't watch much TV but can't even bear to watch live TV unless it is a happening-now news thing--or sports. It's not just the volume.. it's the crazy assortment of ads that are seemingly to vastly different market segments. An ad on bankruptcy follows an ad for investment services? Dang! An ad for a depression drug followed by an ad from lawyers suing over last year's depression drug??? Wow.

    Both are prescribed medicinally, or were in the case of mercury which is no longer. Lithium is still prescribed. Both are highly toxic.

    When used medicinally, lithium as well as mercury is in a different form, compared to your batteries. I think mercury in lightbulbs as well as lithium in batteries are in the elemental form which can be very bad. Although I am not a battery expert so I am not so sure just how much lithium is in a typical modern battery.

    There were laws written to rid the landscape of metallic mercury, and we are about to be forced into discarding considerable quantities of the metal into the dumps. Not sure what laws would be written to protect us from lithium, however.

    And this assumes that batteries of the future will contain lithium.

    Oh seriously! That is too funny ~ I would be annoyed! You should tell them YES, just came out.

    Then they can spend forever and a day tracking one down.:D
