I just did 52 seconds.
Either way I'm not fussed
Only stopped because a fat guy waddled past the window and I ran to the window to yell SADDLEBAGS at him
Quite pleased with that. No-one beat me please.
used to put my swimming suit and googles on and do one stroke up the bath, turn and one stroke down the bath. I also used to time holding my breath under the water.
I want to know what you can do now.
:( i cant even get past 10 seconds hahah
the bath was standard. It was really awkward to get turned at the bottom esp the bigger i got
People in my office looked at me strangely when I let out a massive gasp and had to leave the room.
X, why are you holding your breath
JESUS EFFING CHRIST ON A STICK.
Was going pretty well though.
could probably do better, but its not the sort of thing i'm going to lose sleep over.
will try again later and report back my results :)
I'm getting suspicious about xheathenx's 1 min 47. I demand proof!
It's not my fault you all have the lung capacity of an 8 year old.
not holding nose: 1m 26s 1m 28s
holding nose (post fag): 1m 27s (my chest is hurting a bit)
not holding nose (post fag): 1m 15s (this ended in a short coughing bout, some spluttering was also reported)
A bit of mild suffocation appears to have a positive effect on being able to hold one's breath.
Smoking appears to have an overall negative effect on holding one's breath.
Prolonged breath holding appears to cause light headedness, shortness of breath, coughing and a lowering of dignity. The public would be ill advised to continue this practice for longer than is absolutely necessary.
Writing science in block capitals doesn't count as proof.
But I'm prepared to give you the benefit of the doubt.
Congratulations you win (for now)
AND I STILL HAVE A LARGER LUNG CAPACITY THAN ALL YOU CARDIGAN WEARERS.
MWAH HA HA
the world record is TWENTY EIGHT MINUTES.
Not according to that article
nineteen minutes tho. NINETEEN.
if the guy who had the record for drinking pints upside down and all that shit.
But you're losing at the moment.
Perhaps this can help
Which was about 30 seconds longer than the piss I was having at the time.
i don't think i could do much more than than
Could have done longer, but then I'd have died.
I think 90 seconds or so, but not anymore. I can't hold it very long. I'll practice later and let you know.
Probably could have gone longer but I was afraid of spluttering in my office.
has really made me chuckle. I'd find that really funny.
But my cover would have definitely been blown if I'd have gone any longer.
This is the one time a watch would actually be useful to me.
Hard to read threads on here whilst trying to hold your breath, first two attempts I got just over ten seconds before reading something that made me splutter.
The guy with the record inhaled pure oxygen before his attempt - I'm sure that helps, but... 17 minutes' worth of help? Wow.
I smoke! This is amazing.
I reckon I could push that up to 1:27.58 though.
We just need to find something that puts you out of oxygen for 20 minutes...
