Walking on Water
categories: Geeky, Videos

Or to be more accurate, oobleck, a mixture of corn starch and water. It has the properties of a non-Newtonian fluid, which behaves like a solid when force is applied.

We made this in 5th grade science, but when i tried to walk on it i was a bit slow. It isn't really hard to get out of clothes. A warm wash should suffice.

If this video featured Japanese, Admin would say they have no respect for surface tension.

Still sorta neat for the first couple of times but, like 22{{heart}}22 said, it gets old after a while.
