The lab is a unique place. It's part office, part studio, part library, part kitchen, and part playroom, often with several thousand dollars of equipment and a few highly flammable chemicals thrown in. We're looking for all of your best stories of life in the lab.

Maybe your story is about coming up with an unusual fix for a balky piece of equipment. Maybe it's about an expected series of reactions (looking at you, chemists). Or maybe you just want to tell us about your biggest lab failure or your biggest success. Share your stories in the comments now!
