Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on May 19, 2022, 03:34:59 PMI was walking through the quarry in the park the other lunchtime and some school must have had a trip out there as there was a discarded instruction sheet with 'LAB Apparatus' at the top. Which lead me to thinking 'apparatus' is rarely used outside of school (also used for gym equipment as well as scientific gear), our department has a lab of sorts and nobody uses the a-word.
