    Default Docs: Sand more deadly than sharks

    Maron and others advise the public not to let young kids play in sand unattended, and not to get in a hole deeper than your knees.

    It's incredible to me that people don't get how sand works yet.

    Mavis Gauruder, who lives in Fort Mill, South Carolina, said she's tried to issue similar warnings, like the time she came upon a father digging a hole with a garden shovel for his young son.

    She went up to the pair and warned them of the dangers. The man seemed unmoved, so she finally told him she'd had a tragedy in her family involving a hole collapse.

    "I asked them to fill in the hole. They did, but they looked at me like I was interfering," she said.

    this is so fucking stupid it hurts. So 2 dozen people have died over the last decade from being immersed in sand holes...

    start racking up death rates that are in the same ballpark as brain cancer, then i may care...

    especially when it cuts into your hands, fingertips, and knuckles, causing open sores which attract grains, which get stuck inside the cuts causing continuous pain....my hands look and feel really great

    Mavis warned him not to pick up the giant crab. But he just ignored her.

    If someone dies in a sand hole, do you dig him up just to bury him again?

    Jesus Christ! I'd rather die than be healed from that. No sense living if you look like Quasimodo.
