because the molecules move faster than solids and atoms are more compact, like liquids (or something like that). Anyway, I'm not into scientific crap, so I say it's a solid Violent

I'm not currently set up to read PDF files, and I don't feel like downloading anything for it right now...

Anyway, I say that it depends on your definition of solid. Is the term solid used to describe an object whose atoms don't jump around as much as... well... a liquid? Or is the term used to describe something that is free-standing with an absolute shape?

Technicality, I say.

Science says glass is a liquid, because it flows, just slowly. But, I don't give a damn what the hell science says, glass is enough of a solid for me.

Way back when I was in school and my pet dinosaur walked to school with me, my teacher told me that glass was a liquid. This debate must have been going on a very long time. A Frikkin Cuccoan

Look, everything will eventually flow. Marble in benches flows. YOu might as well redifine liquid.

my book written by a Dr. Karl Kruselnicki of australia defines glass as a solid, but a solid that will eventually flow. in ten million years, a 1m-tall pane of glass will shrink by 1 cm.

Glass is melted sand. It is melted down at about 3000 degrees until it is gooey, then it is molded into a glass pane and remains "almost dry". Either way, it doesn't really matter.

and 486 player, the atoms in a solid don't shake if they are cooled to absolute zero, 0 kelvin, or -273'C.

The only problem with that is gravity is a strong enough force to shatter it into bazillions of tiny pieces. Now THAT'S really breakable glass.
