Absolutely awesome.

I've been a martial artist all my life, including Chu'an Fa(Shaolin kempo) but I still can't do stuff like that...

Here is another one, if you pause it just after the needle goes through the glass, you can see the eye of the needle.

It looks like crystline cellulose rather than glass. If you look closely at the video that includes a balloon as well, you can see a second film layer of some type is present. It could be an extremely thin film coating of some type on Saran Wrap that is pulled tight and coated through an evaporative process making a very fragile "glass-like" surface. The plastic wrap would account for the lack of shattering.

Here is another one with a side view so you can see the thickness of the glass. The glass shatters on this attempt though.

I can do that, except with my urine stream and a piece of three-inch thick tungsten steel.

I win lots of bar bets that way.

Have had it demonstrated by a shaolin monk that studied under for a time.. Quite impressive as yes its an actual sewing needle he used and a regular window glass. Took him many years of study to be able to do. Best that can manage at present is using nails working on the skill yet...
edit on 10-2-2011 by Expat888 because: Gremlins... And half awake from celebrating new years yet.. Happy 2011 year of the rabbit.
