There’s this funny show on SkyOne called Brainiac. It’s geek science. Soooo silly. Right now they’re doing something on mobile phones and gas stations. But the piece before this was, get this, filling a swimming pool with custard (from a powder, not homemade), and seeing if someone can walk on it. Seriously. Custard, apparently, is a non-Newtonian liquid, and as long as it’s not being impacted, it is a liquid. But when you impact it, it goes hard, and you can actually walk on it. Freaking great.
They call the show Brainiac: Science Abuse. Yep. It is. But I can’t stop watching it. And they keep blowing things up, which is fun to watch.
