The stuff of swimming...

Most of us are familiar with the practice of swimming in water. What I wonder is how we might fare as swimmers in other liquids. For example, could we do the Australian Crawl through a swimming pool filled with olive oil? Could we doggy paddle our way across a lake of honey? Could we backstroke through pancake batter? Could we dive beneath the surface of an ocean of liquid mercury and pluck pearls from their shells?

A recurring, and happy, dream from my childhood involved diving into a swimming pool full of potato chips. I wonder what it would really be like?
