What's the 44 Club?
We are passionate about seeing children released from poverty and we would love you to consider sponsoring a child with Compassion. We visited our sponsor children in the Philippines and were blown away by the difference that child sponsorship can make. To find out more about sponsoring a child right now, check out:
What Slow Mo Camera Do We Use? We've got the The Chronos 1.4 which shoots 1500fps at 720p. Check it out here
A big thanks to the awesome crew at the Gravity Discovery Centre in Gingin for letting us use their 45m leaning tower for our own experiments. If you wanna head out there and check it out, it's not far from Perth. Western Australia:

The beautiful coney-joney was first discussed by Hertz back in 1881 and has henceforth become known as Hertzian cone cracks. They typically occur when a hard spherical object is pressed into the surface of a brittle material. In this case, the sphere itself is made of a brittle material (glass) and is "pressed" into the steel plate when it impacts, but the same effect is present. The cone-shape is caused by the propagation of a crack. The crack begins its life as a ring just outside of the region that's in contact with the plate, where the tensile stresses (the kind that pull a crack open) are at their highest. The crack generally then grows orthogonally away from the surface for a short distance before turning and heading away at a coney-joney angle. The path followed is one that maximizes the release of stored strain energy (the same sort of energy that is stored when you pull back a rubber band). The maximal strain energy releasing path is ultimately guided by the local magnitude of the stress fields (similar in concept to the gradient of the pressure levels in the glass upon impact) near the leading edge of the crack. All in all, for spherical contact such as this, the stress fields basically say to the crack, go be a cone, it's the best release. Source: PhD in this area

By the way the Coney Johnny affect at least do you like calling it pretty much it sends forces the drops in his forces end it goes throughout the whole bottle sending a bunch of waves and there’s not that many waves at the point that it actually hits because the waves don’t get to come back in so they fade out at a part making the coney affect

I realize you said funny answer but this effect has a name that I couldn't pronounce bit here you go. It's the durable cone effect. It seems wonky. It happens when glass hits the ground at high speeds.

Gravitational potential energy = mass x acceleration due to gravity x height
40kg x 9.8m/s x 45m = 17,640 joules
Or 17,640 Newton meters of force
So the big boy glass ball has the same force as dropping a small car from about 2 meters.

It's essentially the force being exerted outwards to the edges of the glass ball taking less of a toll on the inside therefore breaking off bits of the outside leaving the cone shape of the glass

when the glass ball hits impact it equally splits the pressure through out the ball ,instead of directly applying it to the point of which it was hit, due to the vibrations , creating the CONEY-JONENY :]
