    Language experts believe that the words gas and chaos probably descended from the same original word, and so, you can see in the word gas the idea of naming the substance based on its chaotic (ie, unpredictable) nature.

    Most likely, no kind of gas exists that, after perturbed, returns to its original shape. I also doubt that a liquid would behave as you suggest. So, that leaves a solid, such as as you said jelly.

    However, at extreme pressures and/or temperatures, who knows what some gases might do.

    If there were any "gas" that behaved like that it wouldn't be a gas.

    *ahem*

    Sorry, but in the interest of science; sometimes, I've heard, people don't know whether it's going to be a shit or a fart but they let it rip anyway...
