We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Now, now. Of course glass is a liquid. We were both taught so by very smart people who stated quite confidently that such was the case, backed up with much rational scientific evidence. Science is always right. You should know better than to question it.
I had been taught the same thing, with the added bit about the old windows that were thicker at the bottom, "proving" it. Some time in the last year I read that this is not true, that glass is neither liquid nor solid, but in a third category of its own. The thicker glass at the bottom of (some) old windows does not come from settling and thickening, but from its method of making, present from its first installation.
