    1: You CANNOT create a pocket of water because it will stick to your legs
    2: Sticking your back into the surface will make the problem even worse, again, because of its stickiness.
    3: You CANNOT do swim in backstroke because you know it.
    4: How?

    Don't worry "It's impossible to drown in quicksand" yeah but if you stay in there long you'll get deep vein thrombosis and your legs will hurt then if you get to your head or above your neck basically chances are you stop breathing and bite the dust. That is if theres no one to help you also I don't get how people get stuck in it.
    If you're just stepping on it just fall backwards :/ (because if you're at the edge behind you is safety :/)

    That will not work for air quicksand, and I don't advice you to try. It CAN easily engulf all of you. This is only for bog/riverbank quickMUD, not for quickSAND.
