Supercooled water fun

The water in these bottles is still liquid, even though it has been chilled below freezing. But once the bottle is disturbed, watch how fast it freezes over.

I've seen this happen with a beer I left in the freezer too long. When I took it out, it was still liquid. But when I opened the bottle, it immediately froze over.

Science is cool.
