Over at YouGoogleTube, there are some videos of people who fill a beer bottle about half-way full with water, then give a sharp vertical slap to the top of the bottle. The water rises, a small vaccuum forms at the bottom, the water is pulled back wicked awwsum fast, and the bottle shatters.
Really? This one does? I usually think of Glass Half Empty
when I come across those videos (and not just because those videos are linked to by that What If).
And just because I feel like trolling a bit: do you get wetter walking or running thru the rain?

You may have read it, read about it, or saw it demonstrated on MythBusters. They did it a few years ago, IIRC (though I don't care enough to look up the episode number right now).
