So, what happens when you pour boiling water into a 60 degree glass carboy, seal, and shake?

Now, to replace my carboy...

Ah, schadenfreude. Where would we be if not for idiot brewers and their idiot mistakes?

But seriously, I hope your friend recovers, so that you can proceed to never let him live it down.

When you say seal do you mean with a stopper without an hole or airlock? If so I am really sorry about your friend but he must be dumb as he!! if he didn't know that was going to happen.

(glass vs plastic?).........

Actually germelli and others have espoused using boiling liquid to sanitize plastic.

Well, he's going to survive. I figured all the nagging a college student gets in chemistry lab about changing the temp of glass quickly would have prevented this, but I guess he doesn't connect dots too well. I did feel for him; I wouldn't wish that on anyone. But still...
