I was playing around with my acoustic yesterday, and I found a weird sound I could make from holding dow one fret on the g string and another 4 frets away on the high e (ex: g=4th fret, e=7th fret) I can't get it on any other string with the same combination, does anyone know if this has a name or not?

It's an octave. You get the same if you play a powerchord without the middle string.

So he tied his nose to the sea
And then God came down from his silver throne
And said, 'Honey, that water ain't free

To get the same results on other strings, you move two frets down instead of three.

The G string's notes are placed differently simply becuase there is no "empty fret" between the two notes prior to the open G (E-F) on standard tuning.

no its not an octave, I know what that is, it's something different. It sounds aritificial, i think it might be coming from my guitar specifically, sort of a rattling (not fret buzz) mixed with a pinch harmonic. Maybe I should get my guitar checked out. And I tried it on another acoustic today, it didn't make the same sound, just a basic octave. Anyway it sounds cool, I'll record it if I can and post it up here.

If the sound is kind of wavy, then it could be that one of the two strings is out of tune. In that case, the sound you're hearing is called dissonance(sp?).

Are you sounding a harmonic on the B string that you're trying to mute?
