6. That's a nasty story.

You should probably consider yourself lucky that it was only a headache. Frankly you could have been killed.

Fossil fuels are unbelievably dangerous whether or not the are in normal use or they are in accident situations, or as in your case, clean up.

Under some situations, sulfur is present in a reduced form, notably the rotten egg smell of hydrogen sulfide. The reason we can detect this odor at very low levels and that we universally find the odor so repulsive is connected with its high potency as a toxin.
