6. I'd bet anything he was
Edited on Wed Apr-30-08 04:56 PM by QMPMom
somehow using oxygen during his time under water. The human body cannot go without breathing, unless it is in an extreme hypothermic state, for that long. And believe me, he was not in an extreme hypothermic state.

I don't believe it for one minute.

I won't be watching. Oprah is on in a little over an hour here and I am not interested. Of course, if it was Oprah under water for 17 minutes without oxygen, I'd watch. I can't stand her. She believes her own press and is annoying to the extreme.

With her putting crap like this on the air, we can only hope that she is on the slippery slope to SpringerLand and MauryLand. At least, since I don't subscribe to Discovery Health Channel, I won't have to take the time to cancel it once Oprah takes over that network.
