    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.)
