   How about using superfluidic liquid helium here? (Zero vicosity).

It's not going to stay a superfluid unless the freezing process is
over, since contact with a relatively warm body will make it
evaporate. (That's assuming that the freezing process actually goes
down to liquid helium temperatures, which it currently doesn't.)

When they took the fourth amendment, I was silent because I don't deal drugs.
When they took the sixth amendment, I kept quiet because I know I'm innocent.
When they took the second amendment, I said nothing because I don't own a gun.
Now they've come for the first amendment, and I can't say anything at all.
