    Too much water can be dangerous..........

    .......I used to joke that I'd better not drink too much water because I'm already 75% water - and any more I would drown.

    Sadly that (or something like) seems to have happened - with a Ms. Strange competing to win a Wiii by holding her wee..........with unfortunate consequences.....

    Very shocking.. I posted that same story this morning on the Geeks to Wii or Not to Wii thread. How upsetting it mus be for her family.

    I always think these sort of gimmicks though.. how much water can you drink, how many pork pies can you eat ert sort of things have been asking for trouble for some time. The guiness book of records no longer accepts what it calls "gluttony" records.

    Most of "ecstasy deaths" reported in our newspapers have actually been as a result of water intoxication.

    I would have thought that people are aware you can die from drinking too much water - certainly if the radio station were talking about 'health risks' you'd have thought they'd have consulted someone prior to holding this competition - in which case they wouldn't have gone ahead with it.
