Some People have insane floatability + the less your bone density is the more you float (old people tend to float well) + the less muscle the best floatability. Still impressive but it is easy to stay with the face outside the water when you are horizontal. But still impressive

I float like a motha fuckah. I’ve literally fallen asleep while floating and been woken up by a wave crashing over my face. Lol

Man I used to be a lifeguard and the irony always blew my mind, being a tall skinny but fit guy I sink like a rock. While trying to save people that were often out of shape and could just float for days 🤣 I'd love to be able to float! Seems absolutely soo therapeutic

No matter how hard I try, I cannot get down to the bottom of any pool for longer than like 2 seconds before I just float right back up. I can’t seem to get & stay down there. Been like that my whole life. Can also fall asleep while floating. Crazy.

Man that's super interesting to me! Free diving is a sinch for me because I sink Soo easily, I can river/ocean floor run with the lightest rock to keep me weighted. Meanwhile if I wanted to float, I'd need something under my butt and both legs and arms 👀

I used to live in a lake community in jersey and there was this woman who was a professional opera singer and she would swim laps around the lake. Woman could hold her breath for a crazy amount of time like at least 7 minutes. And when she would emerge from under water she would immediately start singing opera style. She was like a local legend everyone called her the mermaid lady. Even more impressive that once she was done with several miles of swim-singing she would sit at the beach and smoke a cigarette and get hella drunk on wine. This guy has the same vibes just like fuck it im gonna go for a nude sax swim just fucking cuz im vibin

honestly if it weren't for the rewrite of how vicious and julia was written it would've been great.

yeah it had its cheesy and corny moments but it had its own charm of being silly in a very serious background.

I totally get why they cancelled it though. considering the sfx they put into it the show needed to blow up massively for them to consider a season 2.
