If lifeless liquid can be so damn animated, what makes life so special again?

we can observe the lifeless liquid, it cannot observe us.

Psychics porn is the only way I can get off anymore.

First, I stopped being attracted to Real Life women. Then cartoon women stopped doing it. Then cartoon bears made my boner all soft. But goddamn iffin I didn't shoot a load to this.

Please, it prefers to be called "slurry."

I like the way my mind interprets it as "writhing bodies" for some reason.

Now, we just need to pour a bunch of this crap all over the Statue of Liberty, and we're set.

If any of you understand what the fuck is actually causing this (no matter how mathy/sciencey) I'd really like to hear it.

The cornstarch/water slurry is rheopectic, which means that as pressure is applied its viscosity increases. The subwoofer applies a little bit of pressure all over the place, and when pressure is applied faster than the slurry can return to standard viscosity you start to get the "buildup" effects. Tons of little variants in the system (such as differences in thickness of the slurry at any given point) cause the little writhing towers to rise from the muck.

Finally. I've been curious about this cornstarch slurry for a while too. Now I know.
