1 What Are They??? on Tue Aug 28, 2012 3:06 pm



I have no clue what these are. They are little glass tubes with different colored tips. Looks like maybe perfume inside...I have 44 of them...but what are they? I thought maybe some old perfume samples but I don't know why they'd make them in glass tubes that would have to be broken....any ideas? They're just a wee bit larger than 2 1/2 inches each.

If I had to take a guess, I'd say they resembled some type of smoke detector, or air monitoring tubes. We use something similar at work when testing the seal of full-face respirators.

I'm tempted to break one open....but that silver might be mercury (Though when I was little, I used to play with mercury in my hand and I'm perfectly normal)...or, they might be worth thousands of dollars each and I don't want to ruin the value of one of them.... Shocked

I bought them a long time ago at a yard sale, flea market or some secondhand store for 25 cents.

Maybe Trmn8r might know. He's an engineer of some sort, I think.

I don't think that's mercury in there. If it was, it would roll through the fluid. Since you've got a bunch of them, why not break one and see what that tells you?

It might be Alien Pee or something....I said 'Alien pee' not 'Alain pee'...but then again....one never knows, does one?

Naw, alien pee is green and viscous. I saw that on the TV. And if it was my pee, it'd be gold, bubbly and ya need a barrel to hold it!
