Stupid, but funny. I wonder how much 50lbs of that crap costs?

A dilatant material is one in which viscosity increases with the rate of shear (also termed shear thickening). The classic example is Silly Putty, which can be stretched slowly but snaps and fractures if pulled quickly. The dilatant effect can be seen more readily with a mixture of corn starch and water (sometimes called oobleck), which acts in counter-intuitive ways when struck or thrown against a surface.

# A non-Newtonian fluid for which viscosity increases as the shear rate increases. The process is termed shear-thickening.

# The property of a fluid whose viscosity increases with strain or displacement.

I heard that you can make Level IV armor plating by wearing an AK47 mag vest with magazines filled with silly putty. I think that is what the LA robbery guys used. That is what this dude told me anyway.
