OK, I-A-B, it"s your summer science project. Find some frosted glass, apply clear tape to it and see if this happens...

It`s a glitch, I hope the maker makes a patch soon

I checked him out and he doesn`t weigh the same as a Duck, so he can`t be a witch. Sorry tp.

...I would use that to leave creepy messages on people`s windows! :D

I KNOW YOUR SECRET

Um, that being said, am I the only person that cringes horribly at the sound of packing tape being rolled out? Ugh, it makes me gag!

Huh. I suppose that the clear adhesive would fill the pores on the glass, which wouldn`t disperse the light beams as much. If the tape was too dried-out or tacky it might not work, since it wouldn`t get in all those dents. Also would depend on the frostiness of the glass. And if it`s frosted on both sides, tape on both sides of the glass would work, even though it wouldn`t be as clear as normal.

So this actually does work. The trick is, you have to stick the tape to the side of the glass that is frosted. Only one side is frosted and unfortunatly for you peeping toms, that side is usually on the inside of the house.

bah!, tried it! didn`t work. Perhaps because my lamp is a frosted on both sides. Maybe that would on a one sided frosted glass.

This trick is over 50 years old. I remember seeing it in a 1950`s detective movie.

If you put tape over your eyes you can make guys with frosted hair disappear.

Whaaa? Unbwogable said this works the same way if you wet the glass???? Really? I gotta go buy some sheet rock now to put over the FULL LENGTH frosted window in my shower! Sh*t...no one every told me this before! No wonder the pool guy is always here when I shower!
frosted glass is only frosted on one side if you get the rougher side wet it is clear but the smooth side is just normal glass so the effect wont apply. hopefully the door is smooth inside of the shower

You could try but you would have to put the tape on the side that is frosted. Typically only one side is and the side that isnt is the one that is put to the outside of the window.

Correct me if i am wrong.

Very cool. Also works the same way if you wet the glass (water, alcohol, spit, etc.)

Fools, can`t you see that this tape is actually comprised of anti-molecules that totally cancel out the effect of the frosterium atoms on the glass?

It would have been better, if he used duct tape.

It would have been more cool if by looking through the tape, you could have seen another dimension

The glue on the tape temporarily fills in the gaps in the "frosting" of the glass.

Same thing happens when i do my dishes. We have one of those frosted tiki mugs from Disney, but when the frosted part gets wet, it becomes clear.
