I can`t believe some people are saying Brainiac is `unscientific`... Of course it is! They do it for entertainment and the results never mean anything. If you want actual science watch Mythbusters, Brainiac is just some guys having a laugh.

ahh, ppl stop complaining
1. This is not a really science show, its just for a laugh
2. Whoever said Australia is in drought they are wasting water is an idiot.. yeh were in drought, but its cholrinated water, if u want 2 drink it go ahead, id rather have water restrictions
3. They use "industrial" custard so its quicker and easier to show what happens
4. The pool would be fine, they had a tarp round the edge
5. For every1 who said they watched it before.. WHY THE HELL YOU WATCH IT AGAIN?? idiots
6. Waste of food, look how much food is dumped every day to keep prices up.. seriously look it up.. i pool full of custard wont make a difference

Brainiac is a sham of a science show. A lot of their experiments are very poorly executed... but I`ll admit, this was one of the better explained and tested things on the show.

Still. MythBusters ftw.

Waste of water
Waste of food
Waste of time

What do you suppose they are going to do with all that custard anyway? I am thinking that they will just throw it away.
Oh and by the way the pool was lined with a plastic tarp, you could see it when they showed a close up.

I was wondering how he`d get out. I remember finding out about this when i was seven and mixing cornstarch and water and foodcoloring in a giant bowl and playing with it forever. If you stick your hand in, it`s really hard to pull it out. Fun times.

the harder you try to get out, the stronger it grips you.

So quicksand is made out of custard? Or at least contains lots of starch?

But eh, interesting (but quite unuseful) bit of info.

Jetmark, i`m also irritated by all the africa-is-starving and australia-is-in-a-drought comments in at least 2 different ways

1. Your mad if you think that tiny 5x10 pool is a waste of water compared to the millions of pool`s around the world, that all get flushed out and re-filled daily

2. A few packets of powdered custard is NOTHING compared to the amount of food we all throw away weekly

It`s not meant to be scientific, happyshopper,... it`s meant to be fun! I think it`s much better to watch than Mythbusters, which goes way over the top investigating. To be honest, the stuff that they investigate in both shows is almost completely useless in real life, so why prove it properly? Also Brainiac shows you how to win carnival games :-)

happyshopper, that is because is not really meant to be a scientific show, they do FUNNY experiments which are just for a laugh. Its a show mainly for men to watch as well as there are plenty of times when there are ladies shown in it. But if you don`t like it, don`t just abuse it, don`t watch it in the first place? :)

That was kinda cool, but I`ve seen stuff like this before. It works with any kind of custard with corn flour in it, not just `industrial custard` but with normal custard you have to run because it doesn`t have that much cornflour. It still works though.

actually only good thing about it is the fact that they put things in microwaves to blow them up, stuff like steel wool, cans of lager or liquid nitrogen, thats pretty cool, but it doesnt make up for the rest of the drivvle in it

just so you know the show brainiac, is like mythbusters except very unscientific, they do stupidly unfair experiments, never bother checking the data. say they want to see which is the most aerodynamic food they just get a pizza, some fish and chips and a curry then get 3 different people to throw them and see which goes furthest. haha, complete crap. and as for the custard as has been mentioned its not real custard, cant be arsed to watch the clip but i believe they say industrial custard, yeah rite. thats real. basically stay away from this kind of rubbish

I bet emptying that pool is what caused the floods over here.

I wouldn`t be annoyed if they did that to my pool, id just make sure they cleared up after. Besides, TV companys pay a hell of alot to use the locations so i wouldn`t be complaining.

First of all, I would be MAD if someone wanted to drain my pool to put custard in it!

Secondly, if I was walking on custard & someone wanted to see what happened if I stopped, I would tell them to join me & find out!
