I bought it again

I bought this cup, on a whim, because of the fun, nerdy, subject matter. I also like an oversized cup that’s not ridiculously large. This quickly became my favorite cup. It’s very comfortable in my hand, and relatively lightweight, while still being sturdy. That said, I knocked it off my chair arm, one groggy morning, and it shattered on the floor. After trying to glue it back together, and finding that I couldn’t make it watertight, I decided to buy another one. I liked it so well, I bought it twice. What higher praise could I give?

The perfect gift

A young friend of mine is a graduate student in physics. This was the perfect mug for her as she studies for exams. She was delighted. It works well for a mug or a bowl!

A Perfect Gift!

This mug is a perfect gift for the right person. I actually resisted buying it - thinking it was not a “necessity” for the recipient, but given that his initials and name are reflected in some of the equations….well, I gave in to temptation. He was delighted and I was excited to give this thoughtful, unique item.

This mug checks a lot of boxes. It’s a great conversation starter a d serves as an in depth learning tool. To be honest, I forgot about most of the equations so it was a walk down memory lane for me. Working with CPAs and Actuaries for most of my 40 years in the life insurance industry I’m no stranger to formulas and equations. But the best feature of this mug is (I’m assuming) it prevents most interruptions from junior co-workers that should be working hard on their assignments.

weather is tea, coffee or hot cocoa this mug makes it taste extra delicious. It feels solid and heavy .. I love the equations. This is now my favorite mug.

Great Mug - Correct Equations!

I had a similar mug made by a different company that had mistakes in the equations. This mug gets the equations correct, which is great; but it also is a fantastic mug for drinking coffee in the mornings! Have only had it about a month, but it’s holding up well to multiple washings!

Great mug and excellent service

Mug is great and everyone enjoys it. Customer service is amazing. Original product came broken unfortunately. Advised that it was broken and they sent a new one within days. Thanks!
