I've broken 2 -while cleaning up broken glass from number 1, I smacked number 2 with the broom and knocked it to the floor.

I think that takes the count to 100.

Make that 106, but I bought a Refractometer so I don't have to break another one.

Found my hydrometer after a long stretch of just sticking with my refractometer readings. Used it Saturday to double-check my pre and post-boil gravities and both are still spot on. So, still on my first one after....not sure how many years now. (knock on wood)

I LOL'd when I saw this thread! Nice one.

I have broken two so far. Stoopid case that comes with it. Refractometer here I come.

+2 makes the count 108

+2 overall.

Do I get bonus points from broken thermometers too?

I lost my old hydrometer a few months ago, bought a new one and today while I was pulling stuff out of my brew drawer I "found" my old hydrometer while pulling out a hop sack. Then promptly shattered it when it got launched into the air and hit the ground.
