Hello WARNING: Some people may find this post a little gross. I observed something today that I didn't know could happen in fluids, only in solids. I let some slimy spit out from my mouth. It became a longer and longer connected line, and then the bottom broke off. What was interesting was what happened with the part connected to my mouth. It kind of jumped up again, like a spring that had been stretched. I've never thought about this before. Does slimy fluidshave some kind of spring constant?, can this be explained with elementary fluidmechanics?
