Glass is an amorphic solid, not a liquid - as I have had explained to me by some nerds on /co/. Structurally it's somewhere between a 'true', crystal-like solid and a liquid.
Quote:Contrary to the story she tells, medieval glass does not flow at appreciable speed; those old panes are not thicker at the bottom because the glass is slowly collecting at the bottom but because they were made that way, either because medieval glass makers weren't very good at making glass yet or because it's structurally stronger (I suspect the latter).
Quote:It's kind of too bad because I rather liked the idea that glass is a liquid that simply moves in a completely different time frame.
Thank you for that trivia!

A brief summary is...
It is neither a solid nor a liquid...but a state in between them.
