This is a Prince Rupert’s Drop. It’s what you get when you drip molten glass into cold water. It laughs in the face of your childish notions of how glass should behave.
The bulby bit can withstand hammer blows, but break anywhere on the tail and the whole thing explodes. To spite you.
When it hits cold water the outside solidifies immediately. The inside cools slower, and contracts, pulling against the outside, putting the whole thing under huge stress. That’s good for impacts, like how you can tense and brace yourself, but bad for tensile stress, like when one person lets go of a tug of war.
Anyways, look at it go!
is that what you’re supposed to do because i just need some guidance rn

There’s something about his slight, tight frown, the paternal hint of disappointment in his eyes and those pursed, sealed lips that seem to say, “I don’t approve of what you’re doing, but I can’t stop you from rolling this banknote into a straw and ripping a fat rail of white lightning in the Buffalo Wild Wings handicapped bathroom stall, you goddamn beautiful disaster.”
