This Non-Newtonian Fluid Will Make Your Mind Go Crazy Like Hell!

Have you ever heard of the Non-Newtonian fluids? Well, these substances could both behave as a solid and liquid, depending on circumstances time dependence, or stresses that are applied to them. These compounds are undeniably amazing, just like the formation of galaxies, how our cells work, and the likes. Apparently, non-Newtonian fluids are just here, existing in our everyday lives: they are in forms of custard, toothpaste, paint, shampoo, blood, and ketchup, among others. 

Basically, as a scientific body of knowledge, this simply shows how wild things can be; more so, it tells us that things can work that way.

One of the types of non-Newtonian fluids is an Oobleck (or ooze, or magic mud). It is a non-poisonous, non-Newtonian fluid compound--specifically called a suspension; and If you want to test how marvelous this one can exhibit, it is not that expensive!
But if you lack time, just watch this exhibition, and see its uniqueness as compared with a usual fluid (say, water). By the way, oobleck is just a combination of cornstarch and water.

In this experiment, they used 'wrecking' tools to see oobleck's reaction.

Punches are too lame, so they resorted to a chainsaw, a gun, a golf ball used as bullet, and a firework.

Splat! Well, the balloon broke, and some sort of a fluid.

But, if you would observe how it went in a slow motion...

See that? For some time, the whole ooze package seems to slip off, like a bubbled soap. It maintained its form solidly for some seconds before it was divided.

Normally, the water will deform after the balloon's shape was destroyed, and the gravity will just pull the particles in various positions.

Lo and behold, you can directly associate how the motion went to a cell's cleavage and blastocyst formation. Oh, biology!

In a matter of some seconds, the balloon, as well as the fluid seems nowhere to be found. But, you can easily see those pasta-like structures flying before us.
