I remember hearing about the pitch experiment I thought it was around the time I was in High School, (it was a few years after, 1975), when a drop had dropped and it was reported on. I thought it was a sort of odd experiment, but it did bring to mind the fact that glass is a slow liquid, as well, which has a destructive effect on stained glass windows over time. Long live the long drip.

Actually, glass is not a “slow liquid” - never was. See here: https://io9.gizmodo.com/the-glass-is-a-liquid-myth-has-finally-been-destroyed-496190894.
