I appreciated Linda Jenkins comments.  I came back to lab one day, found
my brown glass jar in a bunch of pieces, with foamy polymerized goo
everywhere.  The hood and a 1/2 full jar became the norm, inside of another
container.  The same thing will happen with GMA disposal, if one is not
careful, and the fumes are killers when the avalanche of polymerizing goo
takes off, blown lids off tops of 5 gallon metal cans also, keep them loose!
Found funky little pieces of plastic floating around.  Don't fill your metal
cans too full either, it is a go the moon scenario!
