I am looking for a few small empty bottles (the kind model paint
comes in - Testors, etc.) 1/2 oz. or 1 oz. size. I want them to put samples
of chemical elements in to send someone for Christmas. They must be glass
(not plastic) and the round type ( not the little tiny square ones ).
Preferably from someone in or near southeast Alabama so I can get them in
People sometimes do dumb things. When I was in college there was a freshman
in an advanced placement program who was doing a project with one of the
professors which gave him access to one of the labs and the stockroom. He
was also making some explosives on the side for summer fun. One was shock
sensitive when dry. He dropped the package on the way to the post office -
and blew one of his feet and part of a leg off. The black humor at the time
was that the clerk in the local post office would stamp fragile really hard
on a box multiple times and then slam dunk it in the correct sack from 12
feet away. Might have been some poetic justice here
Ever since then I always kind of wondered what some other idiot might have
air mailed home and was lying in the cargo bay below the passenger
compartment while I was flying somewhere..
