Materials chemistry in action

I broke a plastic bowl today.

I knew such things were possible, but I’d never actually managed it before.

More, I broke it while trying to keep a glass bowl from breaking. It made interesting patterns when it broke, and it broke into multiple pieces, but it didn’t shatter the way glass would have.

There were metal bowls in the drainboard, too. Fortunately, I managed to refrain from damaging either of those.

So far, anyway.
