No how fast can UPS possibly be? Before I finished asking our Think Geek! order had already arrived. (I am still waiting for an order of Knights of the Dinnertable comics I ordered a few weeks ago).
Last but not least: surfing the geek-store I thought I would need some type of distracting office toy and decided on the cheapest of those the ‘Solar Blue Smart Mass‘ – and best of all it works: I distracted everyone during today’s meeting. This stuff is weird. It really bounces, but it also flows if you just leave it out on your desk. My boss thinks the color is grosse, he would have preferred puke-green or alien-glow. Of course this makes me like the color I have even more 😉
And when you squish it, it sometimes gets little bubbles of air inside and makes weird noises.
Some explanation of the smart mass taken from the think geek page
Smart Mass Putty is a dilatant compound, which means it becomes solid under the influence of pressure. If you’ve ever played with Oobleck, you’ve experienced the same properties.
