If that's not the truth!!!

I think the manufacturers must be making way too much money off all the ones
we break when we change the temperatures of our solutions for them to even
begin to consider making them out of Pyrex!  We're probably funding their
pension plans!

Subject: Pyrex coplin jars

In all my years of histowork, I never found a source of Pyrex coplin jars!!
 and would have begged, borrowed or stolen to get such a beast!!!  

After making other people in other labs replace these pricey little jars,
they started to pay attention on how to handle them in heated solution
situations.  Had my share of the bottoms falling out but I learned!!
