Glass can be stronger than it looks - Prince Rupert's Drop - tested for strength.

Pardon my ignorance... but "Prince Rupert's Drop" sounds more like a painful disease of the nether regions. Is that a specialised form of glass?

Without recourse to Wikiwotsit, I guess it's a glass blowers' term for a little pearl of molten glass with a stringy tail on it. Have to be honest, I'd heard the term, but had no idea what it referred to Marty !
