Hope this is sufficiently on-topic...

A friend tweeted this fun article about how Shure ensures their mics' durability, by eg. dropping them repeatedly from a height, and bathing them in fake sweat -- the real stuff isn't corrosive enough, apparently: "There are off-the-shelf products that simulate perspiration, but Shure engineers determined that the generic sweat just wasn’t corrosive enough, and worked with the sweat-makers to develop a unique formula to meet their needs."
