Rules of the Lab:

  • Experiments must be reproducible, they should fail the same way each time.
  • Experience is directly proportional to equipment ruined.
  • Always keep a record of your data. It indicates that you have been working.
  • Teamwork is essential, it allows you to blame someone else.
  • All unmarked beakers contain fast-acting, extremely toxic poisons.
  • Any delicate and expensive piece of glassware will break before any use can be made of it.
