HMMMM....devilish idea forming...

I was goofing off at work (as usual) and came across this clip on youtube. I was facinated by this whole non-newtonian liquid in action...



So, it got me to thinking.... I'm going to a lake in mississippi on a fishing trip with my buddies this weekend... I wonder what the corn starch/water ratio has to be to get this trick of physics to work? Furthermore, would it kill all the fish in the lake? Morally, should said fish be sacrificed just so I can get some footage of Dave running across said lake to put on YouTube? If said fish lived, would they be ticked off because Dave is running past on their roof?

Seriously, though... if any of my physics inclined readers have any idea about the ratio involved, I'd love to know.

I don't think you should be concerned about fish as much as you should be concerned about rednecks ticked that you've ruined a weekend of fishing.

Ever heard the expression "squeal like a pig, boy?"

It would take more cornstarch than I could fit in the my Cherokee.
