Those were pretty interesting. I was surprised by the wobbling of the glass in the first one. And the straw? I wondered too. All I could think was that proved there was vibration going through the glass?

Cool. Mythbusters did a show on this by the way -- that was a good one.

In case you still wondered if glass was a liquid - the way this video shows the waves makes it pretty clear.

I kept thinking about Spinal Tap and their amps that go to 11.

RBoulanger - bridges oscillate, but they aren't liquid. Despite 4 years of Chemistry degree I cant properly define what a liquid is, and whether glass is liquid or solid.

But bridges are built over liquids!

Mechanical resonance: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mechan...

Apparently troops have to break formation when marching over a bridge as it might set up a powerful oscilation

looks like a bunch of Euro tourists are just shaking the railing if you ask me. British engineering at its finest!
