Post:

We had an interesting experience regarding our beaker breaker that I have
just finished solving.

We have been getting beakers from the Chemistry department; whenever we
need beakers we just go get a box or two. All of a sudden they stopped
working. It turns out that Chenistry apparently got annoyed with all the
breakage so they started getting heavier, stronger beakers and they were
much more difficult to break. In fact, the character of the resonance
changed entirely. So get cheap, thin beakers with a nice ring.
