that`s why they tell you not to drink the water.

This fluid isn`t non-Newtonian... it fallows Newton`s laws perfectly if you take into account its viscosity.

(ketch-up does the same thing...except it`s not as solid when the liquid is pushed out of it.)

I agree with KingSticks on the whole repost thing. We all know its a repost, we don`t need 20 people reminding us.

But it was lame.

I can walk on liquids too, just give me a piece of large thick glass and I`ll walk, run and jump all over it.

I made a batch of this stuff (corn starch and water) with my gf a couple weeks ago. SOOOO much fun to play with. We made a huge mess, but it`s always worth it for science.

It`s not exactly new, but it`s kind of funny the way they do it. Especially the saluting when they sink! Also looks very liquid, most other demos I`ve seen the consistency seems more like quicksand.

That`s why it says "water", not water. Of course no-one can walk on water. Except Jesus apparently, but he didn`t film it so it`s not as cool.

Stupid shows like that are one of the reasons for which I moved OUT of Spain. Just watch ANY scientific show. It will be much better than these savages...

Is this cornstarch and water AGAIN? Any 3rd grader knows that it acts solid when force is applied--no more of these videos of "people walking on `water,`" please.
