The Totally Useless SAL goes to a retirement party!
On Friday 18 September week the ort flask went to the retirement party of the Leibig Condenser (the glass tube in the photo with the rubber hoses attached). The condenser, after many years service had developed a crack and was now no longer usable. The ort flask was able to meet up with many of his old glassware friends, beakers, boiling tubes and test tubes. The latter were bemoaning the fact that many of their peers were now in the 'broken glassware bin' as a result of being miss handled by over excited pupils. This means that they have rolled off benches onto the floor or have had their bottoms somehow pushed out by excessive stirring! The measuring cylinders (the group on the left of the photo) the ort flask noticed, had not changed, they never did mix at parties but preferred their own company. As they are very quick to point out, unlike the other glassware, they are accurate don't you know!
Sorry for the late posting but I did not pick up on the date correction on Yoyo's blog until today when I checked out the date for next month.
