Quicksand was something that always fascinated me as a kid.  It just didn’t make sense to me how the ground could decide to swallow you up like that.  There was like a five year period where movies and television really embraced quicksand and an exotic death device.  Like everything from the 80’s, I think it’s due for a big comeback.  Seriously, when was the last quicksand scene you saw?  The Princess Bride?  I guess it would probably be the fourth Indiana Jones movie but I keep trying to pretend that it doesn’t exist.

While you’re stuck in the quicksand and a captive audience, be sure to like Peppermint Helmet on Facebook and vote for it at Topwebcomics.  The buttons for both are in the sidebar!
