Do you think a thick denim jacket for the carboy would work?

Infuse it with resin and it will/should.

I would imagine that the same technology that kids use to drop an egg from 4 feet without breaking would be necessary.

Any of the methods I see would work for an empty carboy, but not for a full one.

At worst, the better methods will contain the shards. I believe that's the OP's goal here. Not to prevent it from breaking, but make it so that he won't get killed by a shard from the breaking.

You evil bastard!!!!

That is like going into a thread called "How do I make my chicken Bulletproof?" and saying that you switched cast iron safes to hold your chicken feed!

That is a debate for another time!!

I am personally not too worried about the lethality of H2O. Lol.

Anyone see the thread on BOILING in a bucket?

I accused them of being insane, but everyone else seemed fine with it.
