Flushing a toilet with 240 lb. of mercury

So some guy tried to flush a toilet with 240 lb. of mercury. Just because.

It's something of an experiment, as he starts flushing small amounts of mercury and slowly builds up to an entire tank full. The final results are interesting. But see for yourself. (The actual 240 lb. flush takes place a little bit after the 8 minute mark.)
