This is in contrast to Gram-negative bacteria, which cannot retain the crystal violet stain, instead taking up the counterstain (safranin or fuchsine) and appearing red or pink. a metric unit of weight equal to one thousandth of a kilogram Loctite - Super Glue - Marketing Magic - \$3200 a gallon! I guess you could say there was a bit of a story behind this. At the start of school one of the kids needed to have some "Super Glue" in their school supplies. The small tube next to this one was a fraction of the size, and a fraction of the cost. But, our kid saw the size of this bottle - about 5 times bigger than the little tube - for twice as much money, and they assumed (in correctly) that there would be at least two to five times as much glue. WRONG! There was even less! The container (once I got a magnifying glass) says In Microscopic writing it says .14 oz - that's just over 1/10th of an ounce. The little tube inside says 4g (grams). Not sure how many people have scales that weight in fractions of ounces (some postal scales can, our "drug" scales (for the veterinary office) does), so I weighed out 4g of WATER (which should be a greater volume, because of a lighter weight)... and it was less than a teaspoon! WOW!!! Let's do some math... those drops of glue are worth more than silver and most gems... and at the normal price of about \$3.50 a "bottle," 7.1428 of these bottles to make a net weight of 1 fluid oz = \$25.00, or \$3200 per gallon! And you thought gas was high! Now, I'm almost positive that oz is actual weight, not fluid - because that would be more product. Keep in mind that fresh water weighs about 8lbs per gallon (which is 128 fluid ounces), or .0625lbs per liquid ounce. Salt water (except in the Salt Lakes) averages 8.8lbs per gallon (because of the mineral & plankton content)... I would think the glue is at least as dense as the salt water, but I'll use fresh water measurements (because most everyone knows & agrees with them - world wide). Just think - over \$3200 a gallon! Now that's a WOW! We've since tried to point out that the "Net Wt." part is important - as is the concentration level. Anyhow - don't know if any of you have ever bothered to take one of these containers apart, or saw the "net wt." and already figured there wasn't much glue inside. Well, "not much" is an understatement! Gold Gold Restaurant
