Jesus did it so why not give it a shot? Well, I’m assuming that you’ve tried many a time, but the surface area of your foot isn’t big enough to displace the weight of your body on the water’s surface. That’s just physics. All that can change if you have a substantial amount of cornstarch to add in your pool or the desired body of water you wish to walk on.
Oobleck, the combination of cornstarch and water, is a non-Newtonian fluid, which means that it has different properties than ordinary fluids. Oobleck actually gets its name from the Dr. Seuss book Bartholomew and the Oobleck. The gooey liquid rained from the sky and wreaked havoc on Bartholomew’s kingdom.
While oobleck pours like a liquid, it acts like a solid when it settles. If you have enough oobleck to fill a pool, you and your friends can dance, walk, bike, or play sports on the surface. The only downside is that you have to keep moving, otherwise the oobleck acts like quicksand and you begin sinking.
Just check out how much fun these people in Malaysia had at their oobleck party. Hey, they may have lost a few planes, but they sure know how to have a good time. Know more.
