A co-worker and I were discussing the new photo copier we are having installed in our building. As we noticed that the new copier has a lower profile than the existing copier we came up with the theory that it would be easier for people to copy their butts. This led to this question.
What do photocopier engineers use to determine the strength of the glass?
Do they figure out that it has to support a 160-250 pound person? Is there a ‘biggest book’ standard that is used?
Is it even glass? Is it some sort of plastic or quartz or something?
What’s the straight dope?
