Alright, so I never thought much about the heat block that's kept on my bench until today. I broke the thermometer, and it turns out it was a mercury thermometer. Yeah... so instead of doing my little assay I was planning to do, I got a crash course in Hg clean up, needless to say, I am now somewhat behind on my plan for today.
So for all you lab slaves out there... check and see if your thermometers are still mercury, and get rid of them if they are. Mercury clean up is no fun!
