People have been putting mercury in their mouths for years, they just usually encase it in glass - haven't you ever taken your temperature with a mercury thermometer? Also, during most od the 20th century, tooth cavities were filled with an amalgam of silver and mercury - are you sure you haven't been putting mercury in your mouth??

It could also have been one of the metals that melts just above room temperature (but it doesn't burn).

Don't try this at home the fumes are hazardous and the element is poison (it is found in some fish and shell fish)
btw - it is not molten as in applied heat it is in liquid state at room temperature
