    They tell people to get a towel because the ones who are dumb enough to try this `trick` will need a towel when they inevitably spill water all over their counter :P

    Looks like he freezes the water so the very thin outside layer is ice... when he breaks it it looks like ice there. So the inside is liquid and the whole thing looks liquid... is this maybe how he did it?

    Just cause you don`t understand it doesn`t mean it won`t work.
    Maybe it`s a combination of surface tension and centrifigal force?

    Try it before deciding it`s FAKE!
    Then get back to us.

    See! RockWell has a possible solution.

    This is one of the most retarded things I`ve been. Anyone who gets a pooload of water everywhere, deserves what they get.

    Oh, and btw, the glass is airtight, so no matter what you do, the water comes with it to some degree, it has a vacuum inside.

    "Looks like he freezes the water so the very thin outside layer is ice.."

    That would be quite difficult to do for a few reasons.
    1. water freezes from the top down, so it would be hard to only freeze the very outside layer of a cylindrical shape, though it is possible.
    2. water expands when frozen, thus making it more difficult to remove the cup.
    3. seriously, come on, it`s fake. derp.

    "1. water freezes from the top down, so it would be hard to only freeze the very outside layer of a cylindrical shape, though it is possible."

    No you are wrong. Water freezes from the outside in. Liguid wants to always be spherical to minimize the outside layers that dont have the same molecular bonding as a molecule in the middle would. If it is evenly cold throughout an area, like in a freezer, it would freeze outside in. Have you never frozen a drink or something?

    I agree it is probably fake, just trying to figure out if it could happen

    Please dont try to correct someone on a comment when it is obvious you have no clue what you are talking about.

    What he fails to mention is that the water needs to be as cold as possible (33 degrees is optimal) and that you really need to coat the inside of the glass (not plastic) with some sort of non-stick spray.

    It`s deceptively simple. You have to perform the trick in a universe with different physical laws; that way, the water conforms to the shape of the container even after the container is removed.

    I can sell you a quantum flux displacer on the cheap, if anyone is serious about this...

    The spin force makes the molecules escape away from the center of the cup. It is phisically imposible to do that.
