interesting pictures

I took a couple of weird pictures recently.

The other day I was about to leave my apartment for work, and I saw this just outside my door. The faucet was dripping, and it made a cool-looking ice stalagmite:

And the other night I was throwing away a beer bottle (yes, I'm destroying the environment--talk to my state legislature), and it made a funny sound when it landed. When I looked at the trash can, I saw that the bottle had landed on the edge, and the bottle's tip had come to rest on the table. I thought about computing the odds against this, but then decided just to go get another beer.
