Some fun with mud

We collected an exciting type of sand from the outdoor classroom on campus. It's a fine sand and silt that displays an interesting behavior when the rate of strain is fast (like being squeezed, or hit quickly) compared to a slow rate of strain (or if it's shaken).

Clearly, this is screaming for a demo - so perhaps I'll have time to do something with it this week.
