Yeah I used to have some of that it is really messy and will stain your hands or anything else it comes in contact with. As I recall NASA developed
the stuff in the 60's and the magnetic liquid is actually called a ferofluid. But yeah it will go all spiky and stuff when you hold a magnet
underneath it etc. very fun to play with. People are even making artwork with the stuff these days.
Again though you have to watch out you don't spill though cause the oil used to make it is incredibly hard to wash.
