There's one wall in "System Shock" where a four or five metre space is literally covered by the word "RESIST" in giant capital letters, all written in blood. I mean, holy hell, what did the guy do? Rip open his own chest with his hands, then splatter the red stuff on the wall with a ladle? PAINT, dude! It's a lot more practical, and the only way you die afterwards is if you inhale too much of it by accident!
