    After much searching I finally found a möbius penta disc. When I opened the box I see the seller wrapped the piece in not one not two but three plastic bags :doh: and stuffed a few pieces of styrofoam around it. Naturally I hear that familiar tinkling sound of broken glass ,the one that sends chills down all our backs.
    Yes it was broken. Rip möbius penta but fret not ,you will be resurrected soon enough.
    Here are the remains

    Post your photos of broken glass - tears optional.



    It's really hard to say goodbye,
    to such a friend and pal,
    with tears in eyes and lump in throat,
    Adios! Au revoir! Farewell!

    @JCharles I have broke more glass than most.

    I have a budget for it!

    I keep buying GonG's however I break one per week at least!

    GonG's are holding back the CANNABIS Trade for MEDICAL needs?

    $$ is necessary however their R those trying to take advantage of the GREEN RUSH!

    With all the composites why do we still have GLASS?

    + Mouth-piece's on the NON-Breakable type''s R too large?

    My wife is from FRANCE and think's carpet is low class?
    So my friend from MALIBU put in LIME STONE in place of carpet? DURANGO from MEXICO.
    She likes it?

    You don't want a carpet, you want an area rug! :\ I broke a stem right after taking it out of the package and unwrapping it.. that thin film of oil got me, squirted out of my hand and smashed on the floor. Total time of possession about 10 seconds.

    I've received (and made on my own) many, many broken pipes. I've saved them all.

    I want to take chunks of all of them and have a glass blower make me a 30" tall floor bong with 80mm straight tube body... packed full of broken pipe pieces all welded together in a tangled mass of insane jangled multicolor glassy chunks of percolation! :)

    Any glass blowers to recommend for this project? :D

    I broke mine by dropping it onto the base of my water pipe (on a wood table sitting on an area rug).

    That's brutal. I even did a search for broken glass / forgotten glass in this forum. I went a few pages deep into the results but didn't see anything. At least its not a recent thread...

    In CALIFORNIA we have 1,000's of glass blower's out of state I don't know anything that might help you.

    My wife would never let me spend that kind of money?

    $5,000 at least?
    I throw my shard's away!

    she has a finance degree so I let her budget my habit's!

    If you can afford it?

    What? $5,000?
    I would think any glass blowing hack could weld a bunch of glass shards and broken slides together inside a tall tube... I'd pay maybe a few hundred. ;)

    I highly recommend the foam floor tiles found at any store... Home Depot, Lowes, Target, Walmart, etc.

    I put them in my shop and the flooring has saved so many pieces and vapes when falling from a tall drop.
    Not a single piece broken [from a drop] since installation 3 years ago.

    Not my fault, it came with the end broken off so instead of sending it back I just pushed a piece of silicone hose over the end.

    My computer chair swung around when I got up and the back of it bumped the glass off my desk. He was so young.
