Quantity not quality  
I just read a study which found that popularity on social sites is determined by how often one posts not what one says. Since I actually have a few minute while my distillation run finishes I thought I’d try to raise my popularity a bit…

At work they are cleaning out a building that used to be a psychology lab and my boss is slowly, painfully realizing that a $2500 1960s polygraph isn’t worth 2500 dollars in 2010. So… does any one want it? You have to pick it up but otherwise it’s free. You might also want to look at the autopsy table and 100 gallon stainless steel tank. The latter can be had for the price of the SS.

Yes, I’m sorely tempted but my recent glassware addiction has used up all my spare space!

Since my mom volunteered many times in the past couple of years to take a lie-detector test, wouldn't it be unfunny if I shipped it to her? Naw, will pass on this one.

No, no... you get the polygraph then invite her over to "clear things up once and for all".

I'd be interested in the polygraph machine - where's the lab?

the table would be tempting, but I can only envision using it as a halloween decoration.....

A number of people have actually expressed interest in this stuff but it's strictly first come first grab. I'll try to get some pictures up of this stuff. If you're seriously interested why don't you send me an email at my GT address?

The table would also work well as a spare bed for company... all you need to add is the compressed foam cushion! Really, it even has a built-in "pillow".

Could you describe the stainless steel tank? Rough dimensions, covered or uncovered, drain tap, etc.

About 3' high 2'wide 4'long (very rough dimensions) no cover and a large drain (with attached plumbing). It was used to wash cages in and is heavy - my guess is 100 lbs +.

It resembles a smaller horse-watering trough. The drain is between 2" and 3" diameter, I think it does have a trap. There is also a small grate covering the drain. I think the tank weighs closer to 200#. It would make an excellent pond, with half of the height above ground, half below.
