#3 is actually what they say. Glass is not a true solid, rather an amorphous solid. I learned that in science in 10th grade, and a year ago again in college. Also, a quick Google will confirm.

Yeah, but it has two main flaws. One, it says "glass isn't a solid," then says "glass is an amorphous solid." That's like saying "Doom isn't a video game, it's a first person video game."

Secondly, it claims stained glass is thicker on the bottom due to flow. It isn't. Glass doesn't flow. It's due to manufacturing decisions.

Ah, yeah, I watched it twice and still missed the part where they said it flows. Yeah, that part is definitely not true.

Another term I love: Glass reinforced polymer. I know what it is, but calling it that makes my head spin. Different Glass reinforced glass might be closer to what it really is.
Science rules! (Fun discussion)
