    I'd be interested to see how it can be made wearable and if it could be circulated through a cooling unit...

    Although...maybe, if it's mixed with whiskey and enough is ingested...
    ....will it make you both bulletproof AND fearless?

    Should be all kinds of uses for this liquid from body armor to airbags. Not sure how it's going to be worn but suspect like most body armor you will need extra deodorant :D.

    This idea really isn't all that new, as you note, whiskey, by itself and mixed with any number of other beverages, has been making people bulletproof for over 200 years.

    Don't forget dancers.
    Whiskey can make "anyone" a great dancer.

    Non-newtonian fluid. Works a lot like cornstarch and water so it's not thin enough to be circulated easily. I've also seen reports of attempts to combine them with kevlar, but it ends up being heavier than just extra layers of kevlar so there's still a lot of work to be done. My thought was that it might eventually be a reasonable substitute for trauma plates though.
