If we use ethanol to power all our cars ...

... will there be a shortage of corn starch?

Quick! Stock up on borax!

What the hell did Newton know anyway? (Hey, lookit the second link.) Ooblik rules.

I'm also a big fan of nonlinear acoustics.

I spent yesterday afternoon reading about corn. More about that later I suppose.

i'd seen that oobleck-filled pool video before but couldn't remember where. i searched youtube for non-newtonian fluid and found that video and LOTS of others. so then i searched youtube for cornstarch and found the pink stuff. i forget how i stumbled onto the borax link.
