Just came in here to say, if you have a chance to go to the Corning Museum of Glass, do. It's cool.

If you ever get the chance to blow glass, try it you might get hooked.

Eh, the museum is cool, but the bike is a total letdown.  Not nearly enough shiat shattering spectacularly given the post title.

You were expecting a serious glass museum would be ok with that or allow it to occur?

Not really - of course I didn't expect them to let him just careen through all the exhibits. I came in expecting to be disappointed, and I was.  But I was at least hoping they'd set up a roomfull of failed glass items for him to plow through to justify the hype. And there wasn't even that.

That is an example for next time Red Bull:

A) Leave lots to the imagination
B) Suggest excitement and danger
C) Do not share what actually happened
D) Invite a member of the opposite sex, who is also of age, to balance the mystery
E) Fire the musical director/keyboard enthusiast 
F) Make a marketing cut of the film while also releasing a long-arse 'directors cut,' for those who want all the gory/boring details

As a publicity stunt, with cheap glass substituted on the dangerous curves? Yes.

Up next, a Red Bull in a china store.

That bike has probably already been scrapped.

Stuart Abelman will be blowing glass across the street from me this weekend. They fire up the furnace on Friday and it runs all night so it is ready for the weekend.
