Liquifaction is a made up word, but the process is totally real. If you find some sand that is saturated with water (think shores of the ocean, or on a river bank in a low lying area) you can jump on it. Go up and down a bunch of times and continue jumping while keeping your feet over the same spot each time. Pretty soon, you'll feel the ground start to get soft, and jiggle, and then, you'll sink into it!

It's the closest thing to quicksand that you'll find this side of the Sahara and it's tons of fun...that is, until you can't get out and the tide starts coming in.
<p>It sure is real! The residents of Christchurch, New Zealand can tell you all about it.</p><p><a href="https://www.google.co.nz/search?q=christchurch+liquefaction&hl=en-NZ&biw=1680&bih=963&tbm=isch&imgil=se1D45ULOONe5M%253A%253BQE8CKfHVISuTmM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fphamilynews.net%25252Fsay-it-with-me-liquefaction%25252F&source=iu&pf=m&fir=se1D45ULOONe5M%253A%252CQE8CKfHVISuTmM%252C_&usg=__Q9_7rlTswBcLTKymUnIzF0LGVDo%3D" rel="nofollow">https://www.google.co.nz/search?q=christchurch+liquefaction</a></p>

If you have been having no problems <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-classic-short/" rel="nofollow"><strong>UGG Classic Short</strong></a> in running or racing, it would be hard to recommend a change of shoe. It is difficult, if not impossible to improve <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-classic-short/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Classic Short Boots</strong></a> upon a situation in which all is going great. I would advise getting a few pairs of what seem to be your <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-classic-short/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Classic Short ugg boots</strong></a> favorite shoes before the manufacturer changes the shoe. Historically unannounced changes are often made by manufacturers. This can vary from a subtle change in the cushioning around the heel to a major <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-classic-short/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Classic Short uggs</strong></a> structural midsole change. Manufacturers have discontinued a model of shoe, only to resume production a few years later <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-classic-short/" rel="nofollow"><strong>ugg 5825</strong></a> with a line of shoes boasting the same name, but with completely different characteristics
I can't count the number of shoes I've lost to the Econlockhatchee River doing that!
why don't you take them off?<br />
Broken Glass.<br /> <br /> Lol, good timing, I was canoeing the Econ yesterday, not too much wading, there had been a fish kill.<br />
All words were made up once. You didn't make that one up.
What's that last slide a photo of?
It's a shrimp that tried to attack us while we were stuck in the sand. It actually was molting at the time and kind of freaking us out a bit. I know it's just a little shrimp, but we couldn't get out of the sand, and the tide was coming in, and well, you can imagine...
hmm, kinda looks like a shrimp. not sure though.
hope i dont lose all my shoes hahah
