Things I Learned Today

1) John in the shop wasn't trying to play pranks on the undergrad who didn't know how to work with metal by suggesting use of the punch

1a) The clearance between the handles of the punch once you finally apply enough force to go through the metal is less than the height of my thumb.

2) Using the density of water instead of the density of air with a height difference in a water-filled manometer makes your calculations much more accurate
