sodium peroxide

(a phone call I just attended at work)

My new flatmate, works in the Mech Department: “Dude, first thing i saw after waking up, why is there a bottle of Sodium Peroxide in the Fridge?!!!”

Arnab: “No, that’s the bottle of milk from the work fridge — I label it like that so that coworkers don’t drink it. Anyway, I owe you a cup of milk, so feel free and have some.”

I guess this is a little alarming to people for whom peroxide in the fridge is actually a feasible scenario.
