Also, this can't possibly be true; after all, gravity doesn't exist, so any talk of gravity automatically makes it lies and unprovable.

There is actually a company that has developed a prototype of a system working on this principal that is to be used as a security system. The idea is to put a large sand "pit" outside the doors of something like a bank, and cover the pit with pavers or some such. Before the system is activated, you can't even tell its there. After a robbery, when the crooks try to flee, an employee sets the system off, and the crooks sink up to their chests. The system used a bank of compressed air cylinders, so the effect only lasts 15 seconds or so, as best as I recall. Plenty long enough to sink them, but not long enough for them to get back out. The bank employees just need to remember to tell the cops to bring a shovel, so they can get the crooks out after they arrest them!

If you decide to go for a swim in it, hope you don't accidentally open your eyes, get it up your nose/ears or inhale a lung full of sand. Also hope that there isn't a power cut....

A similar phenomena can be seen during a earth quake when the ground liquefies, causing sold ground to act like liquid. Just think about it earth quake starts your house just sinks in to ground like a sinking boat.
