    Writing engineering specs is like walking on water - both are easier if they are frozen.

    Yeah, there definitely seems to be something solid underneath the liquid water, from my view of the video anyway.

    Could it be just an extra thick solution of corn starch and water?

    By the way he walks, the way he always keeps his feet moving, I think it could be.

    Did Moses walk on water? I'm going to have ask my Latino neighbor.

    Doesn't look like a cornstarch mixture to me. I know what what you are referring to; "non-newtonian fluids" but it seems like plain water(on the surface) to me. Walking on a cornstarch solution would not be that clean, at all.

    Ice slab(or something similar) under water, in my(and other's first)opinion.

    It is just water i think. Why would you add the term "liquid"?! I never heard anyone talking about walking on saturated liquid water at P =1atm and T=100 C, v = 1.0435E-3 m^3/kg, you just walk on water. I have done it quite a few times too :)

    Bingo! It isn't "extra thick" though. It's just cornstarch and water mixed in a certain ratio. There are no solids there. That thing I am walking on is completely liquid.

    No, he split the red sea. Jesus is the one who walked on water.

    anirudh, I'm convinced.

    Now can you try turning water into wine?

    the real question is whether or not he will sink if he suddenly loses faith

    Thou shalt not indulge in alcohol and other intoxicants. But just this once.... Red or white?
