      @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.

      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.

      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)

    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.

      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

      @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!

    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.

    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.

  • a9nomis 99
    a9nomis 99 8 months ago

    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.

    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..

      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

    • Emma R
      Emma R 11 months ago +4

      ​@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 :)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Jokes aside this was really helpful.
    Let's summarize
    1) 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.

    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

    “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
