  1. yes if it touches you, you'll be fine. I fix 360/ps3's all day long and am covered in thermal paste by the end of the day and I'm still alive.
  2. +1 :P:D
  3. just dont eat it :P
  4. It is safe to touch it. But touching it will make it stick to your hand, so make sure you wash your hands before you eat anything.
