Question of the day

Would you rather get  hurled by a catapult into the ocean 100 feet from shore OR get released from a submarine 50 feet underwater and try to swim up without any breathing aids?

    I’d rather be catapulted out and have to swim back in. I would get to freaked out to go that far under water.

    I don’t know, neither of those seems all that scary. I guess I’d pick the submarine since it would involve less effort to get out. I think.

    Having served in the navy for seven years I would definately go with being released from a sub.

    The possible trauma received by hitting the water surface from being launched from a catapult would in all liklyhood render you unconcious. Unless of course the trajectory was like skipping a rock. In that case I would hope someone was taking a video. 🙂

    I was going to say the catapult until I saw mssc’s answer. Now I have to think.

    If released from a sub, it would be difficult to get up that 50 feet without suffering some pressure effects – how deep do you have to be before The Bends set in? ’cause that’s no fun.

    If there are no side effects, other than being out of breath, from the sub release, I’d go with that. But if there are pressure problems, I”ll take my chances with the catapult and just curl up in a really tight cannonball…

    Make sure you take a pic when I hit. I want to see if I get a good splash.

    Hmmm i think I’d have to say the catapult…. I hate the thought of being underwater and not being able to breath
