Bullet vs. Glass

Prince Rupert's Drops are beads of toughened glass created by dipping molten glass into cold water, which causes it to solidify into a tadpole-shaped droplet. As the glass cools from the outside in, it produces significant compressive stresses on the surface and tensile stresses at the core of the drop. The spherical shape of the bulbous head gives the glass enormous strength, such that it can be struck with a hammer without breaking. However, the tail is extremely fragile and causes the entire droplet to explosively shatter when cracked.

The +SmarterEveryDay​​ YouTube channel has a series of videos examining the behavior of Prince Rupert's Drops using high-speed cameras. Here a .38-caliber bullet can be seen disintegrating upon impact with the head of the droplet without damaging the glass.

Movie Review - The Accountant.

An intelligent movie that flows well, fantastically shot, with plenty of action and moments that make you wonder how close to possible this is. Rating 4.5 out of 5 and if you liked John Wick, you will like this.

Love is finding a person you always put first and you don't even know you are doing it

A new short story for you all today. The prompt for this lay in a simple statement, "I want to go home." This was where my mind traveled.

Here it is, the last of the Thirty Pieces of Silver. For those of you who have followed this story I hope the ending was worth the long, long journey to get here. Now, time to rewrite it all again. :) Wish me luck.
