This thing is eating a SHRIMP



Water's surface tension can support a metal paper clip. An attraction between the molecules in water causes its surface to act in an elastic manner. By photographing it using a grill in front of the light source, the indentation of the surface caused by the clip's weight can be seen. This bending of light is similar to that in strong gravitational fields, as predicted by Einstein's theories.

no it's not the shrimp is cleaning dz fish

"A shrimp enters the mouth of a fish to clean its teeth. Fish value this service because shrimp can remove and eat harmful parasites. When fish need a cleaning, they approach the anemone in the background, in which the shrimp lives, and open their mouths, encouraging the shrimp in. Both partners benefit."

Thing may not be what we see on the surface

Now, if we could create a device that will increase the water elasticity enough to support a person; we can walk on water

That device exists. I believe it's called "temperatures below 0C, if the water hasn't got too much impurities".

Water temp below 0C is called ICE and no longer called water.

Water by any other temperature is still HO?

If they can make frogs float in mid air (ok mid HUGE Magnetic field) it won't take long before you can do the jesus thingy.

Invalid statement

When "certain temp" is reached the separation of hydrogen and oxygen water no longer exists; that temp is above 100C at atmospheric pressure.
