Chris Boyd (chrisb at hgu.mrc.ac.uk) rearranged the electrons to say:
: (followups pruned even more)
: Anyone who consumes lab chemicals or solutions is just plain stupid.
: While you might think it's a worthwhile saving to sweeten your tea with
: BDH sucrose off the lab shelf, consider the consequences if the last
: person to dip a spatula in had failed to remove traces of potassium
: cyanide from it.
If anyone in our lab puts a spatula anywhere near a reagent tub they get
fed through the X-Omat. Mutter mutter mutter.
: And don't imagine that your DI water tap hasn't seen active service
: in or near some quite noxious solutions...
Hah! RNase-free? Not ****y likely!
