    LOL yeah. I almost never have dreams, and when I do, they make no sense whatsoever. Like once I had a dream that I had crazy deep pencil thick holes in my hand. And one where I was in my bedroom which is on the second floor, then I dug up a dead body with really extremely old coins under the body.

    I Had a dream one time that my boyfriend was an ax murder then when i asked him about it he turned into a giant cat with wings and flew away.

    I have carefully read this site, and the other, referred to in Shark500's polemic; however, neither posting refers to, what I consider an important, nay, critical fact about the subject. The subject is Oobleck. What is it? More important, why is it? Does it serve any useful purpose? or does it merely serve to focus insanity on this site?

    scientists are also trying to use it for bullet proofing.

    Oobleck is the common name for this "non-Newtonian" fluid. It pours like a liquid, but when force is applied it is a solid.

    What is it? dunno but its fun lol
    Does it serve any useful purpose? = entertainment

    Its from a DR Sues book.

    There's at least 3 more of the same exact instructable.

    Yeah, but like Trebuchet03 said "No need ;)

    It's great to have more than one version/method etc. :) His/her recipe is different and what you do (even if someone else already did it) is always a reflection of no one other than yourself ;)
    " so take that!

    But their all the same. There's no variation watsoeva. corn starch + water = oobleck

    "so take that!

    Yes, There is variations. If you vary the ammounts of cornstarch to water, you will get different consistencies. The thicker the oobleck, the more corn starch required.

    hey dude... are there any chatrooms on this thing? cuz if there is...we should go on it! you gave me my first comment
