Scientists discover a new state of matter: ’liquid glass’

Glass, and similar substances including metals, plastics, proteins, and even biological cells, exhibit behavior distinct from almost all solids and liquids. These substances solidify without organizing their molecules into a crystalline structure. New research has dubbed the state ’liquid glass’ and called it a different state of matter than the traditional solid, liquid, gas, and plasma states.

It's a little known fact that glass is actually a liquid. It appears solid, but it's actually moving very slowly. That's who old windows from the 1700s will have wavy lines in them. It's settling slowly.

You’re going to have to be more specific than just saying “metals” because that makes up a large chunk of the periodic table

The fact that glass is a type of liquid has been known for a very long time.

lame...they just renamed highly viscous liquid. And I got all excited for nothing.

So now they've identified the goop that's between a leftists ears. They should now get on with it and figure out a cure.

And this new distinction is useful and will help the world's problems how again?

This is better than calling these substances "supercooled liquids" how exactly?

Ok, so my take aways are: 1. Most everything is liquid glass that was once considered a solid. 2. This isn't so much a discovery as it is a reclassification.

No new state of matter was "discovered," just redefined. Sad

Many scientists are very confused.
