Collapsing Water Walls

I wasn't sure what I'd get trying this out - these came out better than I thought. You mostly get a water wall like I show here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6sztc..., but with a bit of randomness thrown in for what happens to collapse when. This can be seen in the second example, where it was symmetric to start but ended with one gravel uncollapsed - I guess the water wiped out the torch before the gravel hit the ground. Note that the walls are mostly one block wide, vs. the usual 3 blocks wide you get from simply suspending water in the air.

Like me, I'm sure you are reminded of Duchamp's experiments in controlled randomness in art.

Oh, and that one leftover gravel was just because I hit the torch that would have killed it with my shovel - oops.
