It is known that water freezes from the top to the bottom. So, if you were to take a glass of water and put it in a freezer until it was half frozen, the bottom would not be frozen.

My question is, what would happen if you started to freeze it when it was upside down?

want a really boring insight? Water actually freezes from the bottom up, as water cools it sinks (just like air) as the water gets to freezing temperature, the ice crystals float to the top to make the ice. At least that's how lakes freeze. It "turns over" the lake which is very important for the health of the lake. In a glass the water would freeze from all points of contact with the colder air in the freezer. Try it with a clear glass, you'll see a cavity of water.

but what if u had some like mega skill in this area and could get it upside down without spilling any... and if the shelf was flat then it COULD freeze!!!! haha

I totally agree with "vikingboy." Ever notice how icecubes freeze in the freezer? Take 'em out too soon & they're liquid inside.

Ice aside, how is it possible for all you 'downunders' to drink so much beer without substantial spillage? Cool Teaser. 8)

Posted by jazzmusician4609/05/06
How can you say that about us drinking beer??? I am convinced from my year in Beijing, Beijingers can drink anyone under the table - especially when they start at 11.30 a.m each day! :D

Somebody please use real glass, so glass can be shattered in process of freezing water.
