Fluid Dynamics: Non-Newtonian Fluid

 Can you walk on liquid? Flipy, a Spanish comedian, shows us how to do it.
 They filled a pool with a mix of cornstarch and water made on a concrete mixer truck. It becomes a non-newtonian fluid. When stress is applied to the liquid it exhibits properties of a solid.   Non-Newtonian fluid is so named because it's properties cannot be described in terms of the concepts of classical fluids. It can be created easily in the home. An example is a mixture of corn starch and water, roughly 10 parts cornstarch to 1 water.
