    You shouldn't give up so easily. That really is his second and third lie (the first was saying you didn't have an explanation when you had just provided one).

    Posting the article and link in the OP here means he takes responsibility for its content. He posted it beause he judged it worthy of posting here. And he's acknowledged this reality in previous threads. Hence, he's lying when he says he arrived with no hypothesis and lying about what his hypothesis is.

    Furthermore, if he weren't lying about having no opinion, that would just render the entire thread pointless.

    No matter how you slice it, this is all just trolling by MR. This thread should be cesspooled and he should be banned again.

    You could say he's acknowledged this magical reality in previous threads, nearly 5,000 of them actually, magically. You know what though? The OP isn't really even the problem, it's these damned ghostly Bigfoot aliens ! Bad enough when they started drying out our moist and delicious cakes! Now they're spilling our beer! This has got to stop!

    And if people had just used a sealable plastic container and a coaster, respectively, this all could have been avoided!

    On the off chance that that isn't a joke, "take full responsibility" how? When they ban him for the next infraction they should ban you too?

    Oh ho ho! I don't think so! These Bigfoots don't let light years form their home planet or even death stop them from being minor nuisances at our cake shops and bars. Do you think coasters and containers are going to stop them?

    Well, that's not gonna fly. Sorry.
    You should be trying to influence MR into giving proper responses if you don't want him banned, instead of trying to talk me and other mods into sparing MR.
    Because, if he keeps this up, he may indeed get banned again.

    It's not hydroplaning, it's more like a cushion of air, not water. The water only seals the edges. But please don't let me burst your bubble.

    I put a 8 0z glass of water on my kitchen table in a puddle of water. I had to push it to make it move. I then tilted the table quite a ways and the glass still wouldn't move. So I don't buy it. Full pint size glasses of beer don't levitate on bubbles of water. They're just too heavy..

    It doesn't happen every time, and I assume that the conditions have to be just right for it to occur, but it does happen. I have experienced it, and I don't go out to the bar very often. You might want to go down to your local pub and ask the bartender about the frequency of this phenomenon.

    It is a hard phenomenon to reproduce. And it's air, not water that causes it to float. Perhaps there is something special about a beer glass, maybe it has a cavity underneath that holds more air. And the air is under pressure, so it was trapped under there when cold, and then it heats up.

    Examples:

    Well, whatever shape was under the beer glass they definitely ruled it out by trying to make it move. The only way it moved was by shaking the table. So no, it didn't happen in this case.

    Trust me, it's quite real - I've had it happen myself a few times.

    My god, where is your skepticism when it's really needed? When the bubble pops, it no longer works the same way. Use some critical thinking.

    In the test they did, they only let the glass sit for a few seconds before shaking the table; much less time than it actually took in the original video. The test did not match the conditions of the original phenomena. And even if it had, as said, it doesn't happen every time, so you wouldn't need to see it happen every time for the explanation to be viable.
