Gorilla fisted mine last night while measuring the OG of my wort. Got shards of glass in my hand that the wife kindly dug out whilst laughing at me.

My hydrometer read it's final gravity today. 9.8m/s^2 to 0 as it rolled off my counter.

Luckily I managed to get a FG reading before it snapped. Lesson learned, bought two replacements.
