    After school one day, some friends and I went down to the physics teachers room because he promised to let us use his decibel meter (got it up to 118 dB), but then he suggested we try to break some wine glasses he had and he happened to have one that resonated at about an A (440 hz), but i had to tune it up about twenty cents after some experimentation.

    It really wasn't as difficult as I had though it would be. The intonation was much more important than the volume, though I did really have to blast it near the end. That video is after about a half hour of attempting it.

    Yeah, we were a little bit excited. I am going to keep that glass on my shelf forever.
