Powder is not "dust" and is not going to ignite from static on the bench in it's original form.
not hardly. to even think something can't or never will happen is living life foolishly. i am sure there are people who have been killed or injured that thought something couldn't or never would happen.
when dealing with items that are potentially dangerous, it pays to err on the side of caution. all it takes is one time, for the conditions to be right for events to change a person's entire life.
you can believe whatever you want and i'm not going to argue about it. but i will let others draw their own conclusions and make their own choices.
