Can you swim?

Recommended Posts

Nope, but I can float,,,,for a few seconds.

Same before I start going under and filling my lungs up with water... lols

(Super weird, I thought I double-posted.)

It probably feels like we've discussed this before because it came up as a side conversation in the "Peeing in the Shower" thread, haha.

I still can't swim! I went to a lake last year with a friend who tried to teach me, but I am like a rock. A Kametsu swim class may not be for the best--who knows who'll pee in the pool. (Everyone, cast wild accusations!)

Ah lol, yeah it came from that thread, I was wondering if I posted this before.

I can swim and I am not afraid of water.

Side-story: When I was (very) young and couldn't swim, I fell (or jumped) into the pool and I walked in the bottom of the pool, like a boss. True Story

Kinda surprised how many people can't swim. I've been swimming since I was really young, and we've always lived in houses with pools so I guess I take it for granted a bit, and I don't think I know anyone who cant swim, but I do live on the ocean

You say that like it makes a difference, haha. I was born on an island and lived less than an hour from the ocean for most of my life. The furthest I was from a large body of water was when I was in North Dakota for about two years. All things considered, I should know how to swim, but I don't.

When I spoke with the Navy recruiter before I enlisted into the Air Force, he told me that a lot of people who join the Navy don't actually know how to swim and that they have lessons incorporated into their basic training.

I love the water. I was a lifeguard/swimteacher for 6yrs and I taught lifeguard training for 2yrs. The only time I take issue to being in water is when I'm in the ocean and the water is to murky to see my feet. I know to much about sharks to ever be ok with that situation.

I can't swim.. I don't live around any pools/large bodies of water, so I don't think it would be a surprise. Gone on vacation and stayed at hotels with pools, but never bothered learning how to swim there.

I can swim, swim like a fish. I love the water, love the ocean and everything in it....mostly cause I like to eat it. I like to go scuba diving and sport fishing, so not being able to swim is kinda dangerous...lol

Yepers, am practically a fish (predatory fish mind you) been in the water since before I can remember. One of my earliest memories is being at the lake with the family. When I was younger, my sis and I would spend every day down there.....good old days.
