ALso last week we received a much awaited delivery from Leiden – our own first fridge. Now sitting safely and neatly in the lab waiting for the installation.
The delivery had a few intense moments. Risking life in traffic. Thankfully Pittsburgh drivers are very polite when it comes to ‘Extremely fragile scientific equipment’.
Not every box fit through the doors. Our lab is separated from the outside world by a rabbit-hole type corridor. This is maybe good for Alice in Wonderland, but this is one thing I’d change if I could.
“I am going to count till three, and if you don’t come out I am gonna start drilling”.
One brave student was abandoned outside for a good half hour. We literally forgot about him. He did not leave his important post protecting the box.
