I should have tried that with some of my um "special" media
that I used to get student to make.
One poor lad spent ages trying to make a 1% aqueous solution of water.
Guinea pig agar for growing Legionella was quite good got a student looking
for guinea pig tongues.
I still can't believe that an assistant who had worked in the lab for 5 yrs
fell for the long wait joke.
