I didn't learn how to escape quicksand, I learned how to make a quicksand
@Puck Sietsema it was a joke he’s saying he didn’t pay attention to the rest of the video because the beginning was the most interesting
🤣 🤣 🤣
Interesting, I learned both.
@Masdy Renee Ayeee 100% right on the point. My comment doesn't need to be clearly identified as a joke. Those who didn't understand, read my comment as if I'm talking to you in person. "I didn't learn how to ESCAPE quicksand. I learned how to MAKE a quicksand"... That's how I sounded like if I am talking in person. It is called SARCASM.. I don't need to say it's a joke. Also for those who said I didn't watch the whole video, I did watched it all. If you guys still didn't understand, that's your own problem. Have a nice day.
Me, who literally never goes outside: I *need* to know this, just in case
you can protect your home from burglars using quicksand. then it may be useful
Same ant man same
I need to know this I'm going to silver glen agaust 14 (sorry for spelling) it has sand
I love how as soon as the floor gets more liquidy, everyone starts acting like little kids ❤️ it's so cute!
It's called being human.......But people want us to be cold & serious when we're adults. I'm naturally goofy & quirky & I'm 22. I like playing around too. It's normal..
Yes. I too love watching ADULT humans act like little kids. So cute yes haha.
@Victor Maliga B-2111 wow very edgy Victor
@Victor Maliga B-2111 Oh no!! 😩 I’m so sorry to hear that.
I like how the wind sound effects were added to simulate the confusion and helplessness one feels when actually sinking in quicksand. Brilliant!
Highly irritating sound
@there is an insecure person above this comment Lol yep, you're mad. Haha.
@mog dor uh no you complete idiot, you said you made a joke and it wasn't funny, so people thought you were serious. what i meant was that people are stupid enough to make SERIOUS statements like yours, while yours is a joke. i didn't even insult you, seriously low reading comprehension much?
@there is an insecure person above this comment Lol you are angry at my comment and that's funny and entertaining to me.
As an adult, quicksand isn't as much of an issue as I was led to believe in my childhood.
@Joshua Caldwell Yesssss!!!
Exactly as a kid and the stuff I seen in movies growing up. Quicksand moved so fast and was deadly. Was told it would suck u in so quickly
then you should watch mrballen video about a woman who got stuck in quicksand. it is in an area with a bad tide her and her husband were going to a land plot they had bought where they try to find gold. driving over the mud flats saves them alot of time to get there. but their car at some point got stuck. the wife got out and pushed in doing so her leg got stuck in the mod. the husband tried to pull her out but he couldn't. then the tide started coming their character changed from laughing in the mud to desparation. someone from the main road saw them and called for help. rescue crews came out eventually her head was under water and she had a breathing hose eventually she died with all these people there trying to help her. man. imagine being that guy and watching this video only to find out she could have been saved if only she wiggled her leg.
Uhm. You know the type of quicksand our ancestors avoided were in swamps right?And you become a sitting duck for some hungry animal.
I can see for a kid with 50% adult height it could be a problem...
Day 86 of quarantine: I've learned how to get out of quicksand
Day 800 and I'm just learning this important life skill, I'm slacking
Keep scrolling bub!
@Anniefanny Charles By day 90 you'd have gotten gangrene. And possibly be dead already too.There's a video of a young 13 old girl who got stuck in water after a natural disaster. They couldn't pull her out. Well...
And make one too
@Anniefanny Charles lol😂
She is explaining how to get out and a guy just falls 😂
Lol i read this and then he fell down, im dead
And I panicked because he fell on his hands, and what if he went down like that. 😣
Would have been s bit of a panic if he started going down 💀
Almost skipped this video. But on second thought, ya just never know ~ could come in handy 🤷🏻♀️Then… missed the escape as I typed my comment 🤦🏻♀️
Same here 🤣
That's what I thought too! You never know.
Me: *hey, this could save my life one day.*Also me: intensely listening to unintelligible audio with no idea what’s going on
RUclip comments tho😂
Incase you didn’t catch it: wiggle one of your legs with short movements to get it free, pull it up, fold it (like you’re sitting on your knees), lean your weight on said knee and do the same short movements with the other leg (as opposed to just stepping out)
What's sending my anxiety thru the roof right now is the fact that everyone is carrying a back pack and she didn't take off her jacket. Like your going to get ur shit dirty and I can't sand it
You can't sand it eh ? 😅🤣🤣🤣
And having extra weight on you (like a backpack) makes the situation worse. There was an Australian photographer Pete Dobre who sunk pretty deeply in quicksand because of the heavy camera gear in his backpack.
I see what you did there
A pun or a spelling mistake

Whaaaat? I can't hear you
*How to escape a quick sand:* Listen what the wind says.
@Pierre Lesage Brilliant!
that's where is the answer, blowing in the wind my friend.
It's so useful! I'm pretty sure we'll be stuck in quicksand very often. Any idea about how to escape from being stuck in the traffic better?
Muita saudade deste lugar. Espero um dia voltar.
The interesting part aside from this party trick is the visualization of what happens to a city built on anything but bedrock during an earthquake: ground liquification 👌
Ha ha I thought exactly the same!...
Me: I can't hear her at all, let me turn on CC.Captions: **Wind**Me: Ah, that's much better.
Sounds like they just turn on the outdoor fan. Lol
"(It's getting stronger omg)" 0:43
Lmao im wheezinggg😂😂😂😂
Thank you, what clever decision to instruct the walkers on the sand around Mont St. Michel. I've been there, but IN the solid "Mont" itself, not on the sand. If there's one thing I fear most, dying in quicksand is just that.This tour-guide did it very well, she knows what she's doing. At the start I was shocked to see all the sand moving under those feet, as if the whole group could vanish in one second, brrrrrr. Fortunately they learned.
This is like all product demonstrations by sales people. Looks great and easy. but if we try, we would probably fall over and get ourselves pulled in head first.
You don't usually die from quicksand that way. However if you are stuck and the tide comes then you really don't have much time. Especially in Mont saint Michel because of the landscape the tide comes as a wave very suddenly. It still take a while to reach 40 cm but that's probably really scary
Exactly! As she calmly does it. In a real situation we’d be panicking lol
My subtitles just said, "wait for it...... wait for it...... sand.""Now who should we bury first."
@Vishnu PM ok🙄
I went there with family in early September 2016. Had a memorable experience! Hope to visit one day again!
If anyone is watching this while sinking in quicksand, don't panic and follow the instructions starting at 2:36
*WITH CAPTIONS ON
This id important thabk you
y'all he's probably trolling, his username is literally Bible Guy it can't get any dumber than that
@Kaelart thanks for this analogy! I am Christian and have a lot of faith in God, but it's been taking me a while to understand this point.I was recently expressing doubts to a friend and she also gave me something else to think on. I can't quote her word for word, but she said something along the lines of "life can't be fair, because fair is predictable. If we always were punished immediately for any wrongdoings and always were rewarded immediately for any righteous acts, this would rob us of our freedom to choose for ourselves, as we would become like robots, just doing 'the right' things because they have immediate positive consequences."Thanks again and have a blessed day!
When I was a kid I seriously thought quicksand was everywhere and I was going to be swallowed up by it sometime in my life. Lol
Omg I remember this happening to me when I was like 6 years old. I was at a family reunion and playing in a lake when started sinking. I was about waist deep before my dad pulled me out. I lost my news shoes too 😭
Man, I went there and walked the beach before the tide, but never saw that type of demonstration. That was awesome!
This was WAY more useful than the Nat Geo video. THANK YOU!!!
Instructor: "Ok, I'm gonna teach you how to escape quicksand, it's actually very easy"Instructor's mind: *oh god please work*
Imagine her drowning slowly and people around laughing thinking it's a part of presentation.
Lmao I was thinking the same what if she gets stuck and can't get out
Thank you for teaching me how to escape quick sand at *Mont Saint Michel in France.* Unfortunately, this did not work while I was getting stuck in quick sand at *Beaver Creek Butte Basin in Wyoming*
Finally found something useful and potentially life saving to watch on RUclip *faith in humanity restored*
4 minutes, and 4 seconds well spent, excellent video!
Thanks that is helpful .Good to know . I was at a secluded beach and I began to sink .I panicked and slithered out.
Don't you just hate when your having a dance party at the beach and then you start to sink
*"Cmon guys the sand feels great!"*
@Ann Berlin And so now you're offended?
@Beanie Man Maybe you’re just getting old **sad music intensifies**
@Facundo Alvarado thats getting old
Everybody gangsta until someone starts to sink
The captions are amazing!! I appreciate your humor 😄
They Deserves Oscar for this beautiful dance 🔥
This is a video that literally could save a life, and might have already :)
I remember when there was a rescue attempt at turnigan arm in Alaska and they strapped a harness on someone from a helicopter and they ended up ripping them in half. People would die breathing through straws when the bore tide came in. Glacial silt mud flats are some of the most dangerous.
As an 80s/90s kid where growing up quicksand was seemingly an *ever present danger* from all the tv shows/movies, this is so triggering and satisfying/empowering at the same time XD
I always thought quicksand will be the death of me. Along with couple of things 🤭
Exactly, I learned about quicksand danger before stranger danger.
How in the f$uck did 3000 people understand this comment? This comment gave me a headache
Yeah especially in super Mario
Nah not really
Incredible and amazing! Hope I never have to use this though😳🙏🏿🙏🏿!
It is more difficult when it is more like mud and is right after the tide recedes and the mud dries into concrete. You cannot jiggle your way out of concrete.In second thought, she might be able to, she seems pretty good at this
Alternately, “I need to escape the quicksand so I can survive the apocalypse”
I love quicksand. Perfect place is in Alaska(forgot the river name), but it was low tide and my friends and I nearly got stuck lol
The wind was so damn loud it closed my door.
@I can't choose A name!!! Plot twist: You are homeless.
"Here's how to survive and escape quicksand -" *roaring wind*
I’ve been terrified of stepping in quicksand ever since I saw Lawrence of Arabia as a kid! Strangely , it’s never happened!😂
Good job, you’re not wasting your time watching useless videos, but rather learning valuable life lessons by being here
I thought you instantly sink the second you step on quicksand
As far as I understand, you sink when you move. Kinda like a very big ball pit, you move the sand around by moving and thus sinking further
I really want to go there in Mont Saint-Michel :(( hopefully someday.
Thats really handy advice, every city and town dweller needs to watch this.
What a useful technic Sure one day I'm gonna find myself in quicksand and I know how to deal with it
Heres a-run down from what I got out of that video:Quick sand works like this: when your sinking, your legs push the water out onto the surface, causing the sand below to be dryer than the sand on-the surface. This is what causes you to get stuck.The idea is to mix the dryer sand the water so it returns to its more wet 'slushy' like state. Pretend your leg is a stirrer and wiggle it in a circular stirring motion instead of pulling up.Of course im not expert and this might be incorrect but that is what I got from this video.
This deserves an Oscar for best audio
@Nancy Selzer Y r u dumb
This actually makes me uncomfortable.
@Trollex Trollex there's very little quicksand in the USA. I travel and go outside all the time and have for at least 35 years and I've never encountered it.
I'M from France and went there with one of my school's trip...( in 1974) you wouldn't catch us doing this stupid idea.. AND the authorities wouldn't let anyone walk there especially around high tide when the sand starts getting soft....the reason Mont Saint Michel was built there as a fortress was the quicksand served as a barrier and protection from the enemies..
Have a fear of quicksand since watching films 50 years ago! Frightened the life out of me again! 😄
Me as a kid thinking quicksand was a genuine danger I would face in my daily life
I'd be the one standing safely 5 meters away.
My Father Technique:"Don't Go There"
Yesss I like his technique 😅🙌
And that's why I don't really like doing crazy shit in front of my family TvT
This is something a dad would definitely say haha
My sensei technique:If there is going to be trouble, don’t go there.
@Xo Freestyles bro...
Me: I should sleepAlso me: how to get out of quicksand
Her : genuinely trying to explain .....W I N D : So you've chosen Death.
Very good to know. So much danger in seemingly docile areas.
This type of place is very dangerous.. it's good to know how to escape from such situations..
It was fun to see how they created the quicksand
I was thinking how cool it was, until I realized this is probably on a public beach and not everyone who visits got the master class on how to escape this... 😨Will it return to its more stable state in time? Or is it quicksand forever now? (I do not know much about wet, silty sands...)
@Emma R you seem to be interested in science
Mixing it with salt means spreading the na and cl ions into it, which because of the surface tension between the silt particles will prompt the particles to stack neatly. Fun! :D
@End Censorship! They did in the sense that they disturbed it and thereby messing up the particles that were otherwise neatly stacked thereby lending it stability. It behaves more like a liquid when the particles are messed up. Fun bonus fact: besides waiting for the particles to settle, another way of giving quick sand strength is to pour table salt into it! You can find cool videos about it if you search for "quick sand and salt" or "sensitive silt and salt", "sensitive silt" being what us engineers refer to it as :)
@•Strange_ Sunset• 😂 ok
The helpful part of video starts at 2:35 mins, where she demonstrates how you free one leg first, then the next.
I love how hard sand turn into liquid sand.
I did this when I was a kid in a new basement that they had just dugout before pouring concrete. The soil was sand and clay. I moved my feet up and down and slowly sunk up to my waist. Of course I couldn't get out. The fire department was called and they laid boards down and ran a small house down next to one of my legs and the additional water allowed them to pull me out.
If you have been to the Mont Saint Michel before, you know not the quicksand is the biggest threat but the extremely quick rising water :) I enjoyed this video anyway...just in case I ever get stuck in the quicksand.
Quicksand is one of those things I thought it was a big problem when I was young.
@Waldo You can't go waist deep in quicksand. It's impossible.
My youngass me thought quicksand can eat you lmao
@Grea Blood John Mulaney
Which comedian did this joke? Literally this phrasing sounds very familiar
Great video to encourage people to get fossilized in other types of quicksand. I have sunk up to my waist in seconds, only to grab roots of trees for my lifeline. No one will ever find you if that happens.
Beutiful. I wish to live in Mont Saint Michel!!
Thank you.. so useful !
Me: has the worst headache I’ve ever had RUclip: Watch this video!!Me: okThe Video: WIND Me: oh no…Still meb: okay I’m just going to suffer though it because SAND
"Now, if you sink above your waist, I'm gonna teach you how to pray to spare your soul"
@Sepinah Mamat, I knew that you did!
@Lee Haelters yesss ofcourse 😂💖
Very informative and nice video though its not easy to do.
I still don’t know how to get out of quick sand but I did learn some dance steps. 👍🏻
In the UK this should be compulsory viewing and part of the school curriculum for every kid growing up along the coast anywhere around Morecambe Bay.
Damn bro the wind howling at 9287478kps taught me a lot 👍
Instructer : *today I'm gonna teach you how to escape a quick sand*Toronado : *wait a minute I'm almost there*
@Fanny pack no u
@Yes stfu george
@Fanny pack gtfo
I would make sure I was stuck in quicksand
@Fanny pack dude u stfu
The jiggly sands at the first part omg,,, how can something be so satisfying and anxiety inducing at the same time
Objects in liquefied sand sink to the level at which the weight of the object is equal to the weight of the displaced soil/water mix and the submerged object floats due to its buoyancy.It is impossible for a human to sink entirely into quicksand due to the higher density of the fluid. Quicksand has a density of about 2 grams per cubic centimeter, whereas the density of the human body is only about 1 gram per cubic centimeter.
Ahí quiero ir yo. Es un buen dato que no conocía 😁👍
Does this work for the mud of the severn river in England? I only think not due to how much softer and sinkable it is.
I’ve never seen so many people so happy to jump into deadly quick sand.
It's really not as deadly as it appears to be in movies
I hate sand
@Jo you can get stuck and drown when the tide comes back in
Why commit suicide alone when you can do it with all your friends and their friends
Finally something useful and interesting on the web.
Me: thinking I’m about to learn how to escape quicksand Wind: *allow me to introduce myself*
Jokes aside this was really helpful.Let's summarize1) You put all of your weight on one of your legs.2) Wiggle the other leg to let the sand mix with water and free it.3) Put your knee of the free leg on the surface of the quicksand and lean forward.4) While putting all of your weight on your knee, wiggle the other leg till it's free.Congrats you're free, but always remember to stay calm in the quicksand and to think logically.
1:58 even if you’re a professional i would cannot just avoid the anxiety 😭
Teacher:..... And that’s how u get out. Me: Or I could just take my shirt off, hold it against this strong ass wind and parasail up out 💨💨🪂
The wind is so strong in this clip you'd speed up the Earth's rotation
dude fr tho what is this wind
Your to *SMART* enough to trust you
I was just annoyed of the wind
Botw link would be proud
I'm expecting the trainer to continue her lesson as she slowly disappears into the sand 😄
When you are with a group of friends they can help you escape? But the story is a lot different when by yourself. I think most people would panic and yell for help. Until you are in this situation then your life depends on what the hell to do
POV: You’re stuck with Sakamoto in a room with the fire and trying to tame it with high speed wind technique
It's crucial to know how to "escape" from soft sand
That's good to know!! Thank you for the video
This was great. I have always wondered.
The first minute looks like theyre on a ritual summoning a demon
That's basically what they did!
humans: lets make a documentary about quicksand ( *element earth* )*element wind* : hold my beer.
How to escape quicksand - the answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind.
Awesome comment.... 🌬💨💨💨😁😁😁😁😁😁🤪😂😂😂😂😂
THIS COMMENT IS SO WHOLESOME
Muy Interesante, Gracias!
The crux of the video starts at 1:24 is where she finds the right centre spot to start sinking (after the others had formed the perimeter).
Can we all take a moment to appreciate what fantastic legs the guide has. Wouldn't mind hosing those puppies down after each tour.
“I used to think that quicksand was gonna be a MUCH bigger problem than it turned out to be… when you’re a kid, quicksand is like the third biggest thing you have to worry about other than real sticks of dynamite and giant anvils falling on you from the sky! I used to think about what to do about quicksand!” (The quote goes on for a bit) somebody tag John
not so easy in mush mud its more slithery sand has grains that are rougher best is learn to pay attention to surroundings not walk like everything is safe
Me: I don’t need to know thisMy brain: but what if it happens
🤣😂 I feel that's why majority of us are here
Dude I cracked so hard 😂😂😂
Hahah my case is the other way around.My brain: you don’t need to know this, the chances of finding yourself in that situation are close to zero.Me: but, what if it happens. (Following no logical reason whatsoever)
When i was a kid i thought quicksand was gona be one of those things that will have a big impact on my life, turned out it didnt 😁
