    I will shock and amuse you!...

    Oh yes... are you ready girls and boys?

    You see... Jesus didn't walk on water... he ran across some corn starch!

    I've made some of this stuff before. It's fun.
    I imagine it'd be pretty easy to drown in a deep pool of it, though.

    Actually, as it was shown in the vid, the guy floated quite easily in it. Even on the mythbusters when they tried to make quicksand, they proved that when falling in a pool of a liquid more dense than water, you'll be exceptionally boyant. Only problem with this stuff is you'll have a hard time moving around quickly.

    I want to see them do a "divebomb" into it.

    You know they're researching this stuff for reactive body armor kind of like the shield Paul Atreides wore in Dune.

    Researching? I thought they already developed it using a type of glass can't remember the name, maybe "liquid armour" will turn something up?
