Well...kinda walking on water. With a special mixture of water and cornstarch, you can create what is referred to as a "non-Newtonian fluid," which is basically a fluid that doesn't act like how a fluid should act...get it? Anyways, fill a 2,100 gallon pool of this stuff, and you'll have people walking, crawling, and dancing all over it!

If you listen to one cover of Gotye's chart-topper "Somebody That I Used To Know" today (other than this one, this one, this one, this one, or this one), make it fun.'s lovely rendition of the song for BBC Radio One, with Paramore's Hayley Williams singing the Kimbra part.

Ironically, all these covers of "Somebody" have elevated the song to the number one spot on the iTunes charts, displacing fun.'s big hit, "We Are Young."
