History is fun.

  3. W.E. probably still has all those optics and instruments, and knows exactly where they are in lab and what type of power cords they use. that always impressed me!

    also, W.E. has a pair of laser-safety goggles that are completely black and opaque. they have a label on them that says, “FOR ADMINISTRATIVE USE.”
