ITYM 'water is a good thermal compound'. (Probably mostly for the same
reason: high shc and evaporative cooling. OK, so the latter makes both
toothpaste and water a really bad thermal compound, but they're good at
*heat transfer*.)

The adverts for Arctic at the end of said article are quite amusing,
given how much time the article devotes to pointing out that Vegemite
does a better job. ;)

(Quick hint: as any geologist would tell you, don't try using solid
rock. It sucks quite badly at this.)
