    Day 21, walked away for an hour and came back to this. :(

    I've hatched in it many times and have had bad thermostats, but never had one fail in the 'on' position and never exploded a thermometer before. I am very lucky I caught it before it started a fire.

    Going to be using something a little less meltable/flammable in the future and definitely a different style of thermostat.
