I used to do this to get free drinks…

From what I understand despite how cold the water is the ice crystals have no starting place to form, and the act of shaking it bottle up or hitting it against something gives the ice a starting place. It goes from there.

I have never seen this happen ever. Water gets to be 32 degrees, and it gets hard. No shaking required.

I think there is something in this guys water. Maybe it's one of those caffeinated waters.

Actually this is possible, it is known as a "Metastable" condition. This same thing often happens to Aircraft in icing conditions, water hits the plane and instantly turns to ice.

"Pure" water can also be raised way above it's boiling point, then violently boil when subjected to any "disturbance". Mythbusters did a story on this. The boiling thing has injured people superheating water in a microwave oven.

Freezing and Boiling points are only "typical" application numbers.

Water has many bizzare properties, including hot water being able freeze quicker than cold water.

Water is also an electrical insulator, not conductor. The "contaminents" and minerals make it conductive.

Since we're talking about water here i got a question, we have well water at home and have hard water if you get a water bottle and fill it with water that has not been run thru the water softerner and you look at it it looks clear then you freeze it and when you thaw it the water has all these particles in it kind of looks like parmesan cheese never been able to figure that out

First saw this happen in a bar in South Florida. Told the bar-keep to give me the coldest bear he had. He opened it and handed it to me. I took a slow swallow and it was so cold it hurt my teeth. I sat it down on the bar and it froze and started pushing all the good stuff out the neck at a high rate of speed. Weird.

Take a corona, and pop it in the freezer. After a few hours when it should have froze, take it out, and set it on the table, (hard). Voila.

It's called "supercooled" water. If the water is pure enough and left undisturbed, it can be cooled pretty far below 32*F without freezing. Has to do with a lack of impurities in the water not giving ice crystals a place to form. Shake it, and as the water molecules impact the side of the container they instantly crystallize into ice.

I've tried it several times myself but never can seem to get it to work. I guess the water I'm using isn't pure enough.

I first saw it happen when I spent a winter in Minneapolis and used to leave water bottles on the window sill. Have seen it since if I put water bottles in the freezer and take them out at just the right time.

BTW -- that's not the weirdest thing I saw water do in Minneapolis. I walked out the hotel with a hot cup of coffee one 30 degree below zero morning. Slipped while walking to the car and the coffee flew. I heard a "Vooooop!" sound and looked around for spilled coffee -- nothing! The coffee kind of "exploded" into vapor -- I guess because of the temperature difference.

Another morning (40 below!), I again walked to the car, but with a cup of cold milk this time. Slipped again, milk flew -- and instantly froze, forming a long solid milk handle rising from the cup!

Something wierd I've experienced...

I would have about 15 bottles of water (same size as the video in the OP) in the fridge. For some reason, one of them would freeze solid.

This would happen every so often and the bottle that froze was in no particular place among the others.

I still have no idea why.
