I knew that would freak me out, and I clicked anyway.

Excuse me while I put a note on my monitor telling my co-workers they can find me under the desk in a fetal position for the rest of the day.

Wasn't this on here just a few weeks ago?

pretty neat

I think I was scrolling the wrong way and actually drowned the guy...

I drowned after 0:00min. Quoi?

I hope that was my wife and not my daughter during the flashback, based on the regretful thoughts I was having.

My mouse wheel is too loud to do this in the office.

Again? That is one unlucky crew member

4:54 - why didn't the scuba guy help me? Why the fark did I peel my fingernail off? Why couldn't I float on my back in sea water, when I can do that pretty well on freshwater?

Interesting simulation. I drowned at the 4:58 mark with clicking disabled on my mouse wheel and scrolling madly.

One thing they taught me a hundred years ago in lifeguarding classes was to use your pants (or other suitable garments) as a flotation device: tie each pant leg at the cuff and throw the open part over your head a few of times to inflate them (or blow into them if you're not already gasping), then tie off the open part. Once you have some buoyancy you can tuck your legs up to your chest and conserve a bit of body heat - hypothermia is going to catch up with you eventually but if your idiot friend manages to figure out how to turn the boat around it can mean the difference between life and death.

I have one of those mice I can unlock the mouse wheel so it free spins like a bearing.. .

5hr 2m I drowned.. My mouse wheel never stopped. It really gets freaky in the middle where he pulls off his fingernail and starts hallucinating.

That's impressive. Can you come and help me with mouse scroll wheel quality control at my factory? It's in China, so I would have paid you about 35 cents for working the scroll wheel for 5 hours.

Track pads are not meant for scrolling... 4:44

And yeah F*** that scuba diver for not helping!

How about fark the friend for not knowing how to steer the boat back to save you. Or tossing out a life jacket or any other flotation device.

Well that was just stupid.
Helm operator has no idea how to turn around and can't even throw a rope.
Ship's operator is not wearing a life vest.
Looks like an exercise in Darwin.

Well yeah that too... but I'm pretty sure he murdered me so I don't expect a valid rescue attempt.

Thanks to both of you for letting me know I don't want to make it any farther than I did...

I did too, but on purpose.
Heard the guy was a dick, so f*ck him and his boat.

Snake?

SNAKE???

SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!!!! (dun dun dun)

Guess he was lucky enough to have a live jacket on, because he got knocked off, was a bit pissed that his cell phone got wet, but climbed back on board and changed into dry clothes. Really wish they wouldn't have had the "point of view" thing when looking down at old man dong, though.

Either my cable internet has gone to hell, or the site got farked. Slideshow.

^^^This....

Still not sure why the video tab holds the most promise, yet is the worst curated on this site.

Free Boat! That jackass knew exactly what he was doing; if he didn't, I expect they found him dead of starvation and exposure, 1500 miles from land.

Speaking as someone that has spent an insane amount of time in water -- drowning would be one of the best ways to go.  We used to play some pretty fierce games of sharks and minnows in high school.  You learn really quick that you can stay underwater for pretty much all the "hurt" stage.  It's when you start feeling really really good that you know you're in trouble -- brain cells are starting to die at that point.

Anyway, I've had that euphoric feeling more than a few times from holding my breathe too long, and It's not a bad feeling to have as your last.

My fear is that moment you succumb to inhaling underwater and having your lungs turn into flooded bulkheads.
