Weirdly, I just went to van der Graaff (sic) Way in Burlington, Massachusetts.

I think I have at least ten of them in my basement.

Ah, I see what 7 is now. It's one of those bubbly "that's not fucking straight" thingummies.

I've been wondering what the proper name for those 13 things is all night. Put me out of my misery.

14 is a scotch egg. Defo.

It isn't, but 18 looks a little like a coelostat.

If you behave, I'll show you my Geiger counter one day. I've got some uranium glass balls too.

No 4 Grind - I had my money on a set square. Got an antique one that was my Grandads. Totally f'ing useless to me like.

7 is a spirit level, hardly scientific.

Yep, 4 is a set square - they call them rafting squares here. I've been this side of the pond too long.

I keep looking at 18, trying to figure out what the feck I'm seeing. If the answer is laser or 1980s era Keurig coffee machine, I may have to kill someone with my uranium balls (I bought them off ebay).

2 Petri dish, rather than agar plate?

Which leads me back to the scotch egg of 14?

2 - I'd agree with you Grind. It depends what the question-setter had in mind. The Petri dish is the container. As it contains a growth medium set using agar, it could also be called an agar plate.

13 - Theodolite.

16 - Looks the same as lots of different type of lab equipment. Mass spectrometer, HPLC, Gas Chromatograph, electron microscope, flame spectrometer?

Theodolite. That's the puppy.

16 also looks a little like a CCTV system

i think they are all right or thereabouts apart from number 4 which was a culture plug or something like that.

16 was a mass spectrometer

Grind wins a Nobel prize for Physics. Or Chemistry. Whichever he fancies

Cool. If Forest doesn't pip me, it'll look great next to my oversized Flange! trophy.

Culture plug?
