I'd never heard of this before, but argyria is caused by taking colloidal silver. Why would anyone do this? Rosemary Jacobs had it prescribed by her doctor in nasal drops back in the 1950s. She took it for four years, by which time she had turned silver. Argyria is rare, thank god, but a number of medications available over the internet apparently contain colloidal silver, which is why Ms Jacobs has rather bravely stood up and spoken up.

Sometimes too much. I'm not kidding in the slightest when I say that I got an FBI for allegedly selling government secrets to the Daleks before I turned 22. (This is when I learned that smartass senses of humor will come back to bite you if you work for a defense company.)

Ah, so you're the one who betrayed the human race, huh? The master criminal always reveals himself in the final reel!
Seriously, there are no Who fans at the Bureau?

That was the problem. See, the FBI understood that I made one quick smartass comment to a smartass comment, but my bosses at Texas Instruments didn't. The worst part is that I'd never sell government secrets to the Daleks. The Sontarans and Cybermen pay better.

On the other hand, if you sell your soul to the Sea Devils, you're set up with fish for life...
It's true; large corporations, on the whole, have no sense of humour whatsoever. I bet Google can't take a joke.
