comment Why will clay, when heated to high temperatures, harden and become waterproof?
This doesn't tell us why these things happen, but it at least gives us a solid basis for the conversation.

comment Shape of wall's deformation wave caused by baseball's impact
the main point of my post was the difference in stretch between bias and non bias direction. I guess my mistake was in trying to flesh out the physics. I would have left the fact as a comment but I could not because I had no rep.

comment Shape of wall's deformation wave caused by baseball's impact
I did not really think it would be possible to confirm the construction of the fence so I guessed based on personal knowledge. I did get the fact of stretchiness backwards with regards to bias. I would re-guess to say that the wave travels better without stretch than with stretch.
