I used to prepare staining solutions with some "Merck-Darmstad" anilines manufactured just after the "Great War", i.e. the FIRST World War (about 1925 before the World Great Depression).
Try to beat that!.

I've always wanted to have a contest to see who had the oldest reagents.
My lab once had something that was 20 years old.
The whole point of this country is if you want to eat garbage, balloon up
to 600 pounds and die of a heart attack at 43, you can! You are free to do
so. To me, that’s beautiful.
