    It kind of looks cgi in slow motion, but it's really awesome how it seems semi solid!

    How a speaker moves to me is probably the coolest part of this video to me. The whole video is just so mesmerizing.

    I don't know if it's been suggested before but you guys should do a dog shaking water off.

    Honestly, I thought it looked like an evil Flubber...

    I was really disappointed that they didn't explain just what exactly a "non-newtonian liquid" is... I get that they made it is... stuff and stuff, but... it just looked like latex that hadn't set, or a whole lotta unset wax.

    SOMEBODY EDUCATE ME!

    Here's a few more for a Non-Newtonian fluid wish list.
    Shooting an arrow into it.

    Filling water balloons with it, then doing all sorts of high-jinks.
    Such as;
    Putting them on targets then shooting them with different speed projectiles.
    Chopping a water balloon with a sword and/or bat.
    Then finally by throwing them at things and/or people.
    That last one brings to mind the animated story about the frozen egg being chucked at someones groin.

    I'd like to see non-Newtonian fluid get hit with projectiles too.
    But Logistically, they'd have to go to a gun range, get paperwork done, gun safety briefing, yada-yada.
    However, Here are some alternatives that might be cool;
    air-soft gun (plastic air rifle)
    bee-bee gun
    sling shot
    paint ball gun
    soft ball thrown hard at the surface (at an angle)
    Hitting the surface with a bat
    Hitting the surface with a sword

    You guys should shoot (with a gun0 non-Newtonian fluid to see how it reacts to bullets

    i came because it said oobleck in the description of the video

    also to anybody but me did you find it weird how the oobleck was floating above the speaker in slo-mo

    To be honest it reminds me of what you would see if ultrasounds were in color. The non-Newtonian fluid is the fetus and the bass is the heartbeat of the mothers issuing the fetus around inside of the womb. (Yes I'm aware that's not what happens in real life)

    If you guys ever decide to revisit this one, you should try doing half red stuff and half blue stuff... I think you can understand why.

    There was a nearly two minute long add leading into this video. I really hope that you guys get this issue resolved soon.

    On a side note, YAY for Slow Mo Guys!
