    When I was a freshman in college, my friends & I decided to have a 'science party' since we'd just made it through our first year of STEM degrees.  Part of it included making non-Newtonian fluid, so we went to the store, bought about 11 boxes of corn starch, then got a giant sled, and did the math for the correct water/corn starch ratio.  This resulted in a bunch of college kids running across the sled filled with our non-Newtonian creation.

    That said, it is way easier to mix the NNF in the container you want it to be in instead of transferring it somewhere else later... less mess and less cleanup.

    If I remember correctly I think Max (?) made the Day 5 Chibi poster when they wrapped season 2 filming? Because I know I've seen that before via one or some of the cast members on Twitter.

    Be interesting to the the Slow Mo Guy's take on shooting that stuff in slow motion.

    Had to do this in school once, the way I found worked the best was to fill a bottle (like they did) but then have a balloon filled with air on the other side and then just let it flow down. Worked best with Gatorade cause they had a bigger opening and if you kept the bottle at a 45-60 degree angle. You can also mix it within the balloon but that's a bit tricky too

    Ziplocks work but because they have no pressure so they don't look quite as cool in slow-mo IMO

    I was told to NEVER EVER put it down the sink because it will clog up the pipes. Whoops!

      If you run the tap while you do it, its fine, cause i dilutes it enough for it to become an actual liquid rather that Non-Newtonian

      It looks like there's a funnel in the sink, so it probably didn't work.

      The balloon probably didn't stretch without any pressure, the problem is as soon as it was under pressure to stretch the balloon it went solid
