      Test tubes are very cool. nice little way of holding small reactions. Although I don’t use them very much anymore, now it’s usually large round flasks to do reactions in or small tubes for collecting samples after purification.

      Test tubes in liquid nitrogen are the coolest thing I get to use most days.

      Yes, especially if you have a whole row of them and learn to play a song with them like these guys did: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1sFVD6AVG4.
