    Royal Raymond Rife- everything has freq. like bacterias, viruses... and bombarding them with right freq. it could kill them - meaning that every disease is curable witch Rife proved, cured lots of people then American propaganda destroyed him and his reseasrch.

    Isn't just for opera singers... trained vocalists can also do it.

    Not a big fan of this kind of TV show format. I wasn't fond of it when comedians were making terrible jokes on youtube videos when I happened to stumble on that awful show which I don't remember the name to. The content in this show isn't bad, but this same format is terrible.

    You definetly need to watch some mythbusters :-D

    It was not the glass which broke bcz of the vibration, it broke most bcz it was hit by the green stick. This is a failed experiment if it wanted to prove that voice sound alone can break glass.

      +leandr0garcia you think Mythbusters is a reliable source for facts about physics? Neither Adam nor Jamie are learned in the field of physics, Adam himself has admitted himself to not be a reliable source of scientific fact. It's a basic principle that resonance vibrates material and that can cause microscopic flaws in the glass to increase in size and fracture.
      Hey Leandro, it's been a few months and I'm still laughing at how you thought the 0.4 gram straw could shatter glass.

      +leandr0garcia Still you got it wrong by thinking it's the "green stick" that's actually broke the glass . It's a straw and the glass did broke by vibration . So conclusion you're still wrong and trying to cover up your mistake son .

    • leandr0garcia

      +Ausencio Flores it seems that everybody who answered negatively should watch mythbusters, and you will see the set of experiments; then come again and watch the video to get new conclusions. BTW, before replying I knew about the experiments to reproduce this in a laboratory environment... Hey Ausencio, the idea is to share comments, not to troll.

      Are you kidding me? It was a tiny plastic straw. Use your brain before saying something failed and making an ass out of yourself.

      the "green stick" was a straw...
