This is not Dharma-related at all, it's just kind of cool.
"Oobleck," named after a substance in a doctor Seuss book, is a mix of cornstarch and water that has a peculiar property: If you slam it forcefully, it acts as a rubbery solid. If you slowly and gently apply pressure, however, it acts as a liquid. So you can pour it, submerge in it...or you can run across it. Just don't stop running or it will liquify on you...
Casual conversation between friends. Anything goes (almost).

"One should cultivate contemplation in one’s foibles. The foibles are like fish, and contemplation is like fishing hooks. If there are no fish, then the fishing hooks have no use. The bigger the fish is, the better the result we will get. As long as the fishing hooks keep at it, all foibles will eventually be contained and controlled at will." -Zhiyi
