We Should Ban Life Jackets & Other Flotation Devices

They only encourage risky behavior. The only 100% effective way to prevent drowning is total abstinence from going in the water. And if you do, by chance, find yourself struggling with drowning, then no life-saving or otherwise procedure or act should be allowed to be administered. You got yourself into this mess, you have to live with the consequences.

You should see drowning as a gift.

Also, if you were forcibly pushed into the water, don't worry. If it was a legitimate pushing, your body will find a way to shut out all the water and survive the drowning.

What do you think, Neatoramanauts? Should we ban life jackets?

While I snorted at the poster with a grin, the poll on banning lifejackets isn't really in context. A less-politically minded person may scroll down and see the poll and have a litter of kittens just from the implied message of the child paired with said poll. :) Just thought I might want to point that out.

Remember kids, wear your lifejackets when you're on the water!

The back and forth is quite interesting to read. The comment thread hasn't devolved into a pointless shouting match, but I was just trying to be proactive in reminding everyone that they can and should disagree civilly. Thank you for your spirited comments, Alice!
