Running on non-newtonian fluid

These dudes from the Spanish TV show El-Hormiguero mixed cornstarch and water made on a concrete mixer truck, effectively creating a pool of non-newtonian fluid – which is almost like normal water, but when stress is applied to the liquid it exhibits properties of a solid.

I don't think you would have bumped – quite literally in this case – into a such a material in old nature. Well, maybe in a swamp. But that is less fun. Just imagine all the next Olympic sports we could build on this! Hypermaterial of the moment.

Naturally, there is also a Japanese TV version, but I like this non-newtonian fluid scuplture better.

this is...rather old now. not to degrade the post or anything. but it has been around a while.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
