Cocktail Chemistry Set

cocktail-chemistry-set.jpg

This “Cocktail Chemistry Set” is cute enough and just shy of $40, making it nearly cheap enough to merit a second look. But if you were willing to give up the custom bent-metal serving tray, you could order the flasks and beakers from some place like American Science & Surplus for considerably less.

And who drinks out of a test tube anyway? God didn’t create scientists from the dust so they could sip out of something other than Klein bottles.

    I have to point out that using the official symbols for radioactivity and biohazard on drinkware is not a particularly good idea, especially for the likely purchasers of this product.

    Hell, I once stored a friend’s homebrew beer in a 2.5L bottle that used to contain some pretty damn potent sulfuric acid from Mallinkcrodt.

    Surprisingly, two fellows took absolutely no notice of the blatant warning labels on it until after they both downed a cup of the stuff.

    Needless to say it was a real laugh when two drunken men asked me if they had just drank sulfuric acid. (as if it would have tasted so similar to beer that they wouldn’t have known!)

    Test tube cocktails are pretty popular at the Goth/industrial dances in Missoula. But they just use a standard wooden test tube stand (I assume it’s standard, anyway, it’s what I had in high school, nothing fancy like this.

    But maybe there’s a smaller chance of being raided for running a meth lab if you buy the consumer-branded test tubes.

    In Texas I believe you can be arrested (and possibly convicted) either way.

    I think the limitation is demonstrating the “intent” to make drugs with it; but, naturally, that’s a pretty fuzzy limitation and it does, at times, go astray.

    …Up yours, Joel! I’ve had 500ml flasks for drinking glasses for over 25 years now. They work great, and they’re *VERY* hard to tip over :-P :-P

    Three comments: (1) as a one-time chemist, I have to point out that using the official symbols for radioactivity and biohazard on drinkware is not a particularly good idea, especially for the likely purchasers of this product. This kind of falls in the category of pulling a fire alarm for yuks. (2) If you want to drink beer out of a test tube, all you have to do is go to Koln. (3) For chemical cocktail needs, I suggest Made With Molecules.

    “who drinks out of a test tube”?
    Most everyone who buys shots on Bourbon Street in NOLA !
