For Natalie Whipple

Natalie Whipple is one of those super cool people in the writing world that I love to read about. She has a super cool blog, and amazing drawing skills to boot. She’s like nine different kinds of fabulous, and the other day she posted a video where people ran on water.

(I couldn’t find the actual video, but it was something like this)

Well, being the queen know-it-all that I am… I jumped right in her comments section and told her what was up:

Gah! Why did I do that? Why did I spoil the secret? Shouldn’t I just let them have the magic?

Poor Natalie was so sad after I posted it that she tweeted:

Yup, I did that. I made her all sad. And for what? So I could be right… geez.

Well, I’ve been thinking a lot about that this weekend, and so I decided to search the internet and prove her right!

So, Natalie… this one’s for you:

It’s a mixture of cornstarch and water–sometimes it’s a solid, and sometimes it’s a liquid.

Turns out people CAN walk on water, as long as they have all the right tools. 🙂

Surely we can find some sort of writing lesson in that, right?

The Mythbusters guys did this too! Not sure how the guys on the lake in the original video did it; seems like the plexiglass was a better explanation there.
