Okay, before you scream ‘heresy!’ and ‘burn him at the stake’, hear me out. Malaysians walked, ran, danced, and did all sorts of physics-defying on top of a pool of water. But this isn’t your typical swimming pool. The pool had a non-Newtonian fluid of corn starch and water, called ‘Oobleck’. So technically they still walked on water, albeit with a little help from science.

And if you’re wondering why ‘Oobleck’ sounds so familiar, it’s because it was inspired by the Dr. Seuss book ‘Bartholomew and the Oobleck’.
