I tried another fluid simulation. I still have a few things to learn.
1) It appears that inertia caused the water to fly out of the cup - I did move it relatively quickly. How can I lift the glass of water without causing all the water to shoot out.
2) Why is the water black when it hits the table? I had that issue in the first simulation and it also appears to be the case in the tutorial I followed the first time around. However, this is obviously non-realistic. I really intend to investigate this.
