    Nothing would happen... water reacts to sound waves, wind, hot and cold and basically nothing more, and especially not feelings or words. That idea is stupid.

    No to me he isn't.
    It appears to me that a person's spoken feelings and music (which are nothing more than vibrations) somehow has an affect on the structure of the water when it freezes.
    Do you think it unusual that vibrations may affect such?

    You have other options besides someone making a purchase for you.
    I would suggest you figure out what they are and pursue one or more of those routes.

    The spoken word is vibrations. Or in other words - Sound waves.

    It's not a persons feelings, it's a persons feeling towards symbols on a piece of paper on a petri dish. And I don't see vibrations from Mozart allowing a crystalline structure to form, but somehow heavy metal prevents that. (Assuming they're played at the same volume)

    I'll consider it.

    A guy uses a computer, created by 300 years of scientific knowledge and complemented by 50 years of scientific research put into the internet to complain about science by linking it to pseudoscience. Lol.

    Mkaaaaaaay.

    Words spoken about hate but in a lovely voice or a simple expression of feelings in a monotone voice will not produce angry water crystals because water can't denote meaning, just sound. That is the point so yo u can take your idiotic misunderstanding and do what you always idiotically do... compound the idiocy.

    It is a person's verbalized feelings.

    Again.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
