Never cut a bagel

Bagels are meant to be sliced only. Never cut a bagel in half, for it will longer be a bagel.

Lab Benefits of Bagels

I believe other essential features of bagels in the lab are that they remain fresh without refrigeration, they don't leave grease stains or get your fingers sticky, and partially eaten portions keep until you return (if science interrupts you in the middle of a snack).

I scoff at your Zen philosophies (while I scarf a bagel)

@DrQuine,

 

A real bagel goes stale rather quickly.

Reminder: Never ruin a bagel by eating it with bacon (or any meat for that matter).

@MeasurementBlues: Never ruin a bagel by eating it with bacon

It simply isn't possible for porcine ambrosia to ruin anything -- including a bagel -- in fact, now you have me thinking of a bagel with cream cheese -- chives -- and BACON!!! Ha!

Uh, I'd be more worried about the drinks getting into the equipment if spilled.  And the ESD generating properties of the plastic containers.  We got rid of styrofoam cups a few years ago in favor of paper - help the environment and cut ESD at the same time, but I make a point of not bringing drinks into the lab ever and encourage others to do the same.

Real bagel bakeries such as Rosenfeld's in Newton, Mass. or Kossar's in NYC would never sell you bacon with their bagels. Corporate places such as Einstein, who don't understand bagels, will.

@HilaryLusting tweeted that the bagel doesn't look good enough to be from the NY/NJ area.
