A 6-foot tall Magician had a water glass and was holding the glass above his head. He let it drop to the carpet without spilling a single drop of water.

How could he manage to drop the glass from a height of six feet and not spill a drop of water?

Glass is either empty or contained water in a solid form - ice - thus, no spillage.

It didn't spill until after it hit the floor. Or he was standing on a chair so that it didnt spill untill it had fallen 7 feet.
