As the page quote demonstrates, [[ArtisticLicensePhysics pooling together large quantities of small, solid material won't magically give it the properties of a liquid]].

* In the SF novel ''Rocheworld,'' a multimillionaire discovers she's been selected for a one-way interstellar expedition. Since she'll never need money again, she instructs her broker to liquidate ''everything'' into ''cash.'' She also contacts the owner of a staggering rare gold coin, and arranges to purchase it for a number equal to her approximate net worth. He shows up at a warehouse with the coin in a protective briefcase, expecting a check or similar. She emerges from the warehouse adjusting her clothes, and says, "Don't try to swim in the bills. Paper cuts." She then puts the coin in her pocket, walks away, and takes it with her when she leaves the Solar System.
