Did you know that many people consider their keyboards to have way more germs than toilet seats? Did you know that workplace environments are some of the most hazardous when it comes to physical health? Did you know that those shared workspaces–desks, elevators, counters–have millions of germs, many of them harmful?

Those may not surprise you. It stands to reason that when any number of people share a space, whether at home or at the job, there is a likelihood that germs will spread quickly, especially in the common areas.

If you changed the shape of a crucible to look like a flattened Viking boat and made it smaller, it would be an evaporation boat.

Wait, how do crucibles get hot enough to boil metal?
