I think I came into contact with some Potassium Chromate in chem 2 towards the end of the day. I have like a brown stain on my hands. It's not burning or red but all the MSDS sheets say it's corrosive and all that. Am I alright if nothing is happening?

just wash it off some more and it should be ok, as if there is some residue all it could take is a small thing to set it off

Girl (Ned/chav) annoying me on the bus.

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

You will be fine.

It is slightly toxic and will do you no harm. Was it off with a lot of soap and water... Or pour vodka over your hand and let the choromate react some more and was it off

potassium dichromate( in acidified form) is used an an oxidising agent, so it will react with ethanol to produce ethanoic acid (or ethanal if you want to know the bit between)

EDIT to chubbychunks

Double edit to appolo

I know, but i decided to throw in the dichromate for cubbychunks as he mentioned it

WASH IT NOW!!!!!NOW!!!

call hazmat while you're washing it. look in a phone book or call the operator. if you really think it was K2CrO4, you're in deep sh!t. that stuff is deadly

DON"T EAT ANYTHING!

EDIT:
the reason it's not burning is probably because it's not completely pure or it's not in contact with anything it can react with. having said that, DON"T USE SOAP! especially not ones with bleach/bleach alternative. this could cause you to lose your hand.
