The Science of Pyrex
I found this tiny Pyrex Boiling Flask at Goodwill By The Pound last summer. Amazingly enough, it survived the original Goodwill outlet before being dumped at GBTP, where goods are hurled into these huge wagons and wheeled out for more man-handling by the crazy deal hunters. I'm not even sure how much the flask cost as it was put on a scale with the other things I bought. Whatever the cost was, it was less than a cup of coffee at Tim Hortons. At the time, I had no idea that Pyrex manufactured scientific equipment. Does anyone else out there in Pyrex-loving land have Pyrex flasks or beakers?
