Kind of clarifies why cavitation is bad for pumps and propellers.

It’s not actually the cavitation that breaks the bottle, it’s “water hamer”. It is the collapse of the cavities that accelerates the water column. Cavitation is really not that big a deal, it is simply water boiling under vacuum.

Add to that control valves with high pressure drops.

Have kept that tucked away in the event I needed a makeshift funnel...but it hasn't happened yet.
If one is short on water or fluid, a nail or similarly shaped metal can be used for the same result.

It was kind of amazing all the tricks we use to learn/practice, during our teens.

Remember the match in the milk bottle and the hard boiled egg? (But it only impressed the girls who were nerds.)
