"why do they put glitter in the sidewalks?"
    #3914260 - 03/14/05 01:34 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

A)  Somtimes the stuff that they use in the concrete consists of stone(obsedian-glass-crystal type)or recycled stuff which contains glass.
B)  Small pockets of wetness within the concrete dried and left little bubbles which act like mirrors to light.


Thought I'd post this since it was brought up in another post and it's one of those things that only myself, and this group, would appreciate.

:smile:

What a wonderful topic for the 'Pub'. Two answers come to mind, besides glass, {which, by the way is used in asphalt road construction....}  Quartz and/or Mica....both reflective and abundant on this piece of dirt we call home. :shrug:...MMmmmmmm..Shiney .... :wink:

Stefan - I'm sorry for posting in the wrong section.  I was completely unaware of "the pub".  T'shall not happen again.
And let me assure you - GLASS is, in fact, in there.

I like "iloveraving"'s response - it sure is cool to trip off.

:smile:
