SWMBO broke mine a few weeks ago, so I used that as an excuse to buy a new one and a refractometer.

664. Just finished a pumpkin ale and took my OG. I put it in the tube it came with and the plug at the bottom fell out. It seemed flimsy and slid right out! F***!!!!!!!

668. The kitten got up on the counter and noticed that it rolls when you hit it, right onto the floor...

671. Didn't even drop this one. I was cleaning it and crushed it between my finger and thumb. Flimsy POS!
