By the way folks, especially those of us in the "Freest Country In the World" (note sarcasm) the USA, and also those of you who may hail from Australia... and no doubt lots of other places, it is illegal to "posses" certain things:
It is illegal to posses the following in Texas (and no doubt other states) in the USA without "proper authorization" - but no problem owning a 50 caliber long rand tripod mounted rifle. Austriala has very similar rules on these same items so I wont list them twice:
Chemical precursor means:
Hypophosphorous acid (by rule, TAC)
Red phosphorus (by rule, TAC)
Chemical laboratory apparatus means any item of equipment designed, made or adapted to manufacture a controlled substance or a controlled substance analogue, including:
a distilling apparatus
a vacuum dryer
a three-neck or distilling flask
a tableting machine
an encapsulating machine
a filter, Buchner or separatory funnel
an Erlenmeyer, two-neck or single-neck flask
a round-bottom, Florence, thermometer or filtering flask
a Soxhlet extractor
a flask heater
a heating mantel
an adapter tube
That's right folks, you better not get caught with an Erlenmeyer flask in your possession!
Because of stupid laws like this, I got myself one of these: (which strangely enough is not illegal to buy in Texas, but is illegal to "have" - hmmm go figure). BTW I do not live in Texas if you are wondering, I am just picking on them today because of all the states, they claim to be the most free. Ha!
My favorite Erlenmeyer!
