I did not know that....

Just did some research and death can occur, according to THIS SITE if you struggle too much and loose your balance you could then actually drown in it. After all the movies of people sinking below the sand I think the panic would lead to struggle and eventually a fall and death just from the fear.

What an interesting fact though. If you aren't clumsey you can survive quick sand. :)

Did you know the old Nursery rime Ring a ring a roses has nothing to do with the plague at all/

In fact it has changed over the years, Urban legend says the song originally described the plague, but folklorists reject this idea.

The first printing of the rhyme was in Kate Greenaway’s 1881 edition of Mother Goose or the Old Nursery Rhymes:


A pocket full of posies;

Ashes! Ashes!

We all fall down.

A novel of 1855, The Old Homestead by Ann S. Stephens, describes children playing "Ring, ring a rosy" in New York. William Wells Newell reports two versions in America a short time later (1883) and says that another was known in New Bedford, Massachusetts around 1790:

Ring a ring a Rosie,

A bottle full of posie,

All the girls in our town

Ring for little Josie.
