What Is a Bottle?


A bottle is a narrow-necked container made of impermeable material in various shapes and sizes that stores or transports liquids. Its mouth is sealed with an internal stopper, external bottle cap or closure, or a combination of these. Bottles are used to store and serve food, beverages, medicines, and chemicals. They are also one of the most common items found among marine debris.

A plastic bottle is a cylindrical plastic container that has a neck (or mouth) that is smaller in cross-section than the body and accepts a screw-type or snap-cap closure to seal the contents inside. Bottles can be manufactured by several techniques including stretch blow molding, reheat and blow molding, co-extrusion blow molding and injection molding.

The term bottle can also refer to:

Bottle Episodes

There’s a special place in TV fans’ hearts for the good old bottle episode. These episodes are often standalone or departures from the main narrative and tell a more intimate story than typical TV episodes. Whether Walt and Jesse are locked in a room trying to catch a fly or Don and Peggy are working into the night divulging secrets, bottle episodes can be a lot of fun.

But what exactly defines a bottle episode? Is it an episode that takes place in one location, or is it an episode that’s more character-driven than plot-driven? Does it have to be a full hour or less? There’s no official definition for the term, so fans have debated and discussed the definition for years.

Regardless of the definition, most experts agree that a bottle episode has to have clear goals for its characters and be emotionally engaging. It should have a central conflict and an arc that the audience can follow as it progresses. A bottle episode should also avoid relying on expensive add-ons like CGI, elaborate fight choreography or multiple locations to create its tension.

The word bottle was originally a synonym for a narrow-necked container, particularly a glass vessel used for milk or other liquids. The term has since evolved to describe any container with a narrow neck, usually without handles, that can be plugged or corked to hold liquids. It is also a figurative term that can be applied to any container that is difficult to open.

Bottle is a complex substance with many properties. Because of its atomically disordered structure, every point on a piece of glass can have a different set of physical properties than any other point on the same piece. This makes it very difficult to predict how a glass will react under certain conditions. This is one of the reasons that scientific research into glass continues to evolve and progress. Glass is an incredibly versatile material, and the possibilities for its future applications are endless. It’s a material that has saved lives in medicine and helped propel clean energy, but it’s also a leading contributor to marine debris. The good news is that scientists are making headway in solving this growing problem, and it’s possible that the solution could be as simple as a new type of bottle.
