abs was not convinced that sugar glass windows existed outside the confines of my mind. i found some info via google:
* Sugar glass premiered in early action movies. Actors, instead of crashing painfully through real window glass, dove into large sheets of candy glass. When shattered, these softer and safer "windows" broke into large shards, giving an authentic broken glass effect. Today, stunt-movie windows are made of plastic and wax.
abs also worried about the shards. she was right about that. and i need to update my stunt-movie trivia!
