Smarter every day did on video on this, it's called a prince Rupert's Drop. You can smash the bulb part and it will not break but break any part of the tail and the entire thing shatters
@Leprechaun Giant, Giant came threw with the explanation
@Leprechaun Giant, that's a common misconception, it's actually what Bonkers said
Did I just watch a giant frozen sperm explode?
@Bonkers, it's a called Prince Albert tear, it's glass heated til it drips into water. Bunch of mumbo jumbo science
@Tuffthing, Prince Rupert drop*
@Tuffthing, uh it is not mumbo jumbo sir. It is super cool.
When you get down on your girl
Glass age FTW
That video is about glass and reinforced/hardened glass. Pretty interesting, definitely worth a look.
I just watched these guys live in Portland the other week. Love them!
@xiaobandito, yes! I saw them in LA. 2 years in a row. I was a little bummed though that they didn't change the show much a year later.
@CynicalSir, yeah- I hear that! I still enjoy listening to Adam talk and both of them to express their excitement over different things. They are on their last tour now.
