My friends and I like to argue about dumb things, and I can’t think of anything dumber than this argument we have. They think that pudding is a solid, and I’m heavily in the camp that it’s a liquid. I mean obviously it’s not really either, or else it wouldn’t really be an argument. They say that it’s a semi-solid, or a soft solid, because in terms of diet, I guess that’s what they call it. I, however, took chemistry, and in terms of that, it’s like a non-neutonian fluid… Sort of…
Anyways I wanted to put it up here on the internet and hear what you guys had to say about it.

So somebody on the Facebook page actually commented on this, saying that apparently pudding is something called a colloid, which is where one phase of matter is suspended in another, like how hairspray is a liquid dispersed in gas, pudding is a liquid dispersed in a solid. Or maybe it’s a solid dispersed in a liquid? I’m not really sure, but that’s why for dietary reasons it counts as a solid, but it’s not super obvious which one it really is, because it’s both! Huge thanks to that person for this information. You helped me learn something new today.
