    I've heard of water intoxication before this.
    It's a big part of the reason why rescuers have to be very careful with extremely dehydrated people.
    They are so thirsty they can easily drink themselves to death because their tissues can't absorb a whole lot of water very fast.

    When it doubt, Wiki it out!

    Yeah, I've heard of drinking too much water. It's the same as drinking too much alcohol (only you need alot more). Doesn't work the same way of course. But to die of drinking too much water you have to REALLY drink ALOT of water.

    These idiots should be worried that the county prosecutor might look at criminal charges (manslaughter) against these idiots they knew the dangers of this contest and that doing this has caused death in the past and were joking about it and used the possibility of somebody dying for publicity.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    It just doesn't make sense though. Our bodies are like 90 something percent water. I don't see how this can even be possible. Apparently it is.

    No, I'll do that though. But it still can use the chewbacca defense.

    Dude - it's a courtesy to use the Quote button when responding to people.
    It helps the conversation flow nicely.

    Give it a shot, you'll be surprised at how much clearer things will be for all.

    My quoting button has never worked for me. It only works when I turn the quick post option off. I know you can do something like (q\ insert quote here q\) but I'm not exactly sure.

    I'm sure Webby or someone could help you figure out what the problem is if you posted a question over in the Help forum.
