"Glass" is a term used to describe an amorphous SOLID. Its describes its lack of crystaliine structure and has nothing to do with its viscosity.
Therefore by definition glass IS a solid.
The whole thing is an urban ledgend. Humans have not been making glass long enough to have observed a flow.. The predicated relaxation time for GEO2 at room temperature is 10^32 years (thats 10 with 32 zeros after it years for idiots)
Assuming those figures are wrong and some medieval glass shows flow, wouldnt that mean Egyptian or Greek objects would actually show proportionally more flow being 3000 years old?
The reason old panes of Window glass are sometimes thicker at the bottom is because of glass blowing centrifugal forces. They are often found thick end at the top!
I bet most of you think the Coriolis effect makes toilets flush clockwise in the northern hemisphere and counterclockwise in the southern?
good thing I wasn`t around many many centuries ago to discuss the "Earth NOT being flat" theory or I`d get more than just detention.
I saw your article but doesn`t offer an incontrovertible conclusion in either direction, Cindy. In fact it leaves off on a very ambivalent note, so I`ll continue believing glass is liquid until new science suggests without a doubt otherwise.
134, run along and occupy yourself with Yu-Gi-Oh, would you?
Cindy, yes, I read your link, and it doesn`t do much to refute my claim. It doesn`t explain why glass was always made with one end thicker than the other or why it was supposedly installed with the thicker side down. This method of production provides no structural benefit whatsoever.
anyway, i knew all of those...thats what happens when your parents are scientists and you have a brother that`s obsessed with physics *sighs*
You said glass was installed with the thicker side down. Why would this be true? It wouldn`t provide any structural benefit whatsoever. I think you are accusing me of bs solely to boost your own ego. You can`t stand having someone know more about any given topic than you do. Get over it.
The dark side of the moon refers to our inability to see the opposite side of the moon, it is "dark" to us, not the sun. This guys full of crap if he thinks he`s informing anyone about these facts.
Anyway, I already knew all of this stuff. If you`re into physics (like me), you should have known this since you were 16.
...not only that, but he was after Eratosthenes who was around AT LEAST in the BCs...and calculated the diameter of the planet
Here are some comparison photos of Konec, proving it`s her.

And sorry, psychoman364, but glass really is a liquid.
No it`s not. Glass it a solid. There art liquids that are so viscuous that they look like solids (like Pitch, for example) but glass is not one of those.
As for water being blue... if when I look at it, it looks clear, then it`s clear. Nuff said.
but we can all thank our first grade teachers for lying to us anyway...
ktipr: glass is not necessarily very dense, it is very viscous.
About the half-naked chicks, it`s interesting to see that Katerina Konec lives in my area. All this time...
11: glass is not solid, it very dense liquid.12: light can be considered both particles and waves.13: grass is not blue, it is actually green14: the word coin is spelled C-O-I-N
