Liquid mountaineering

I’m sure you will have seen the running-on-water guys advocating “liquid mountaineering” with their high-def video cameras, their expensive wetsuits and crazy headbands, it’s attracting a lot of attention and seems to be a classic pre-advertising campaign video hoping to go viral…we’ll see.

…or is it? There’s evidence that people really can run across water (well, water made up into a dense colloidal suspension with thixotropic properties that might be described as a non-Newtonian fluid. But, these guys with the crazy headbands and accents? You tell me. Maybe they hit on an idea from Ancient Greece that really did make an appearance in that compilatin of fairy tales and myths with that bearded guy and the Roman soldiers.
