Non-newtonian Fluid

Also known as Einstein's Nose Oobleck... here's an interesting Japanese video that shows what happens when you tickle a shear-thickening fluid with sound waves.



The reaction from the observers is almost as funny as what happens to the cornstarch mixture. If you're in a hurry, you can skip to 1:30, which is where it gets interesting. There's something alive in there...

I love weird stuff like this!

haha fascinating stuff the ol' humble custard mix!

Richard Hammond demonstrated that you can run across a swimming pool full of custard - as long as you don't stop!

Throw some iron powder in there and add a magnetic field, and see what happens.
