Unknown chemical at wbgeneral

Help --

There is a large plastic/teflon beaker containing an unknown liquid at 
wbgeneral.  It is not labeled with a blue card.  This must have occurred 
sometime yesterday or today.  Whoever did this, please take care of this 
right away, or at the very least, inform us what the chemical is, so 
that we can handle it appropriately.  Or, if you know anything about 
this, please let us know.

If no one gets back to me by the end of today, I'll have no choice but 
to impose the my favorite, traditional punishment on everyone who 
enabled the bench over the time in question.  Remember, even if the 
beaker is NOT yours, but you enabled/used the bench knowing it was 
there, you are responsible as well -- if only for safety's sake, you 
should always be aware of what other chemical processes are going on at 
this bench before you use it.  (My favorite punishment, for those 
interested, is to come up with a question that is suitable [I really do 
mean "suitable" - not a "stupid" one] for us to use on the safety test, 
either at wbgeneral in this case, or for SNF safety.)

Thanks for your attention -
