I'm getting old. I only lasted for 37 seconds. I think I can do a little better with a couple more tries.

No, I'm not kidding. I've got exceptional lung volume, apparently.

It's like, "Oh my God, I'm going to die," and then I involuntarily inhale.

I need a clothespin.

Actually, I just kind of enjoy the thought of people all over the country doing odd things at my command. Let's see Bush do that.

Equivalent to the size of his nostril.

When I was in top shape, I could do a lap up and back under water.

Now, I would be lucky to just make it up one length under water.

Never really timed it. But I have to hold it long enough before the next wave hits me. Holding your breath sitting in a chair is easy. Try doing it while 12 foot waves are pounding you.

I went over a small creak waterfall once near the Yosemite National Park, and the swirl wouldn't allow me to get any traction. Fortunately I had a big breath in my lungs so I quit fighting and trusted the water current to eventually grab onto me like a piece of drift would and carry me out of the fizz.

It seemed like it wasn't going to happen but it finally did.

1 minute 18 seconds. Longer if I breath through my nose.

It might be even longer if you breathe instead of just a breath. :p

That is so uncool to point out my spelling error. I'm gonna neg rep you bunnyturder.

Blow all the air out of your lungs before taking your deep breath. You can hold it longer that way.

46 seconds

1:01 after hyperventilating.

After you've got your baseline, try taking about 10 deep, fairly rapid breaths before trying it again. See how much longer you can hold it.

:eek: You better go see a doctor.
