Walking On Water

January 4, 2007

Watch to see people walking on water (sort of) . . .

How does this work? Matt Kolokoff, Brain Vomit’s total nerd in residence, provides us with an explanation:

“Its called a nonnewtonian liquid because it doesn’t conform to
normal liquid behavior- the molecules will only slide past each other when
not exposed to too much pressure….apply pressure, and the molecules grate
against each other, forming a solid. That’s why when they walk across the
liquid, they don’t sink, but if they stand still, there isn’t enough
pressure to lock the molecules together. What’s the substance made of? Cornstarch + water. That’s it. I shit you not.”

Stop fucking knowing everything all the time Matt.  You’re making us all look like mongoloids.
