where’s the fuckin ice
I still believe Iceland and Greenland sat down in a meeting one day and it started with
"You know what’ll piss people off"
Actually, it was the Vikings. They discovered both Iceland and Greenland, and when they realized the weather, named them opposites to confuse their enemies. So the enemies would go to Greenland, expecting it to be all pretty and green and good for farming, but it was all ice. Vice versa for Iceland.
WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?!??!??!
It’s quicksand. Quicksand is much thicker than water, which is why things sink so slowly. By that same logic, one can walk on its surface if you go fast enough and with little enough pressure, like skipping a stone on water.
THAT IS FANTASTIC
Non-Newtonian fluids, everyone.
As a child I believed that quicksand was going to be a much bigger problem in my life than it has turned out to be. Little did I know I could defeat it by simply waddling like a penguin.
Same here! The 80s gave me unrealistic expectations on how much quicksand I would encounter in my life.
Also it’s usually quite shallow. It’s safe enough for kids to play in where it occurs frequently.
