Scientists Create 'Liquid' Armor or "Crack Open A Can of Bulletproof Custard"
Scientists in the UK have created a new liquid that, when combined with kevlar (the stuff bullet-proof vests are made of), absorbs the kinetic energy of bullets, instantly becoming thicker and sticky, trapping the bullets. This 'bulletproof' liquid acts like custard, in that the molecules actually lock up and become resistant to any force directed against it.
What a concept! It's like in the "Blankman". All you have to do is soak your clothes in this stuff and you can be just like Damon Wayans and run around in your pajamas.
