CO2 should be harmless.  I'm pretty sure it's going to force the carboy cap off of the carboy before the carboy will break.  I might have to test that with one of my bad carboys.

Sounds like you need to videotape (do people still use that word?) your own episode of mythbusters.

Or, if it doesn't go as well, Jackass...
Please do not reply if your an evil alien!

I think it would be fun, but I don't have a video camera.  I might have to do a webcast. :)

You can take my refractometer and thermopen (ok, I don't have a thermopen), but don't take my autosiphon.

I can live without my refractometer but if you come anywhere near my thermopen you'll pull back a bloody stump  ;)

I'm an autosiphon disciple but I've recently got everything together I need to push the transfers with CO 2 ala Drew.  I just haven't gotten around to putting it all together yet.

I can live without either of those, but if you take my Jet carboy/bottle washer, you're in for a world of hurt. ;)
