Flubber (or so it used to be called...)

I was informed that I dated myself by calling it "Flubber" and I literally had no idea, which in and of itself, dates me. Well it used to be called Flubber and now it is called something else but I forget what. I had about 10 bottles of Elmer's Glue, half used, a bunch of bored kids, and the school year is almost over! Who needs glue when we aren't in school? So I found a recipe and made Flubber! It's a fun little science experiment because of the quick chemical change that happens when you combine water and glue and then pour in some water/Borax. Instant fun. Both Easton and Annabel took a good 5 or 10 minutes to work up the courage to touch it, but then they realized it was fun and we are still playing with it.

I was hoping it was named after some sort of great sport fish, but again I am disappointed.
