I almost think it is less. Here's something from their site.

Thought I'd share these. I was washing a glass carboy at the sink when it shattered and broke on me. It got me right across the wrist and cut the artery, nerves and tendons. Paramedics had to put a tournequet on my arm to stop me from bleeding out because the cut was so deep. After three years of recovery, I still cant feel most of my hand and three of my fingers because of the nerve damage. Glass sucks. Don't play with glass.

I'm not all that scared of using glass but have taken precautions to keep them together just in case

Nothing serious I guess I set it down on the edge a little too hard and blew out the side of my 6.5 acid carboy. I did kill 90% of my 1.097 DIPA that I was going to pitch my yeast on. Worst part for me was I had to go to work so no chance to clean it up. Whole garage smells like hops. And then I left to find it running out the door... New weekend project!!
