be deep sea diving and your oxygen tank runs out
be bungee jumping and have your cord snap
One of these involves a quick death.
While the other is a slow and extremely painful death.
theyre both quick, actually(youll implode from change in airpressure in a short amount of time), one just leaves a mark on the ground for others to clean up
You can't go diving alone, so just share oxygen with your partner as you swim to the surface.
Tiny bungee onto trampoline LOOPHOLES FTW
i finally get to find out if its true that you blackout before you hit the ground
your imbillical cord......
what if the cord snaps when your so close to the ground you will only get a bruise and it didnt say how high you were bungee jumping js
you could just fall in deep water
At least you'd have more fun.
Yeah but with the diving you have a chance of swimming back to surface if you bungie jump and the cord breaks your dead
not if you're over water
@Jacob You'd explode.
@Aaron Jacob *Implode
Jacob, DEEP sea diving.
You wouldn't implode, you would just develop decompression sickness.
If you got down there to run out of oxygen then you have to assume you haven't yet been killed by pressure. If you ran out of oxygen you wouldn't drown because you're still breathing from the now empty oxygen tank. You would fall asleep from lack of oxygen and die painlessly. You'd still be inhaling from the tank but it would not be oxygenated, just nitrogen and carbon dioxide.
Actually no you can't. Ever heard of the steps you need to fullfill to go back to the surface when you're deep sea diving ? They take hours.
@Aaron no you wouldn't, the pressure would cause you to become unconscious and then drown. @Jacob, if you go up too quickly the pressure change will knock you out
@Kendall depends how high, hitting water from a high enough jump can be like smashing into concrete when you hit it because of surface tension
@xXB4XYXx the pressure at that depth would cause your lungs to collapse without oxygen. The pressure change from that depth would kill you.
The cord could also snap just shy of the return upwards, making the fall much less perilous.
As a diver, i at least know that i have a chance of survival. Oxygen tanks don't 'suddenly run out'...it's pretty gradual. When it starts getting a little difficult to breathe, that means i have about 10 good gulps of air left. ASCEEEEEEND!!! and try not to die by the bends...
The question doesn't say have your oxygen tank run out gradually. It says run out. You don't get the choice.
If you are deep sea diving, the bend'll definitely kill you. The thing is, unless you are an idiot, you will have brought a friend and you can share air as you slowly ascend.
Damn you jonneh thats a good point. Now I wish I could switch.
Dude, F*CK drowning
there is a buddy system when diving so you would get your partners spare chord and breathe through that until you get to the surface.
What if it snapped at the very bottom at its slowest and lowest point? HAHAHAHA
Take off the backpack and rip it open with my teeth and hold onto the strings for dear life, at least have some sort of quick reaction solution to maybe save the day. x)
Buddy system with diving your partner should have enough or with deep sea diving you could head into the decompression chamber
never said when the cord had to snap I wasn't one inch from the ground, Loopholes FTW
at least the moment you realize the cord span you're dead
doesn't say how deep you are when it runs out i could be 5 feet from the surface on my way back up :P
You're really bending this. It's like saying the cord snapped before you jumped.
At least u have a change of surviving in the water
you could survive with the water...
you could survive with the bungee jump
higher chance of survival
Morgan No not really because the cord wouldn't snap until tension was place on the rope therefore decreasing the amount of force and speed you are falling at, it's the same thing as a harness, they have a tear away section above the lanyard that rips away after falling a certain distance (fall arrest check it out)
It doesnt say how deep u would b
Let's hope I land in the water.
Death by drowning is worse than a quick splat.
well if the oxygen runs iut then you slowly fall asleep and die without any pain. so yeah that seems like a good option
Why must I suffer in such, deep, scary places when I can have a little fun before I die? I'm more scared of depth than I am of height.
Doesn't say i wont survive. If i don't, it'd be a quick death though.
I have a mortal fear of suffocating, so bungee jumping it is. Most of them are over water anyway.
This means a chance of survival. With the blue option, you will die no matter what.
ill only bungee jump off a bridge with water underneath so i wouldnt die
Water doesn't soften a fall from high enough up
There could be water under where you're bungee jumping ^-^
I'm a fast swimmer.
since I'd never be bungie jumping from more than a few feet....lol
If youre bungee jumping over a lake, you're fine.
Adrenaline would be flowing. Dead before I know it.
Maybe you are coming back up so you just need to swim up
Bungee jump into water would be fine... but if it was on the ground I would pick blue
But what's at the bottom also how high are u
People only go diving in pairs. So just share air until you're at the surface
Regulations state when deep sea diving, you must having a diving buddy who is required to carry a spare rebreather. My grandfather was on a cruise and if it weren't for his wife, he would've been sleepin wit da fishes. (Pun intended)
Well guys, I guess I should tell you where the buried treasure is......it's in the......hgnnn annngh *gasp*....... *oxygen tank runs out*
I could fall on to a trampoline after it snaps one foot above it.
In the army marines they do teach you what to do when you run out of oxygen in deep water you can buddy berth which is just sharing that tank with the person next to you
Would you have a partner for scuba cause if you do you can partner breath to the top
Bungee jump above a lake?
I came into this world because of broken rubber and Im going out because of it
could hold my breaht long enough to swim back up :D .....seriously this was easy XD
Maybe i was near the ground. Snap! Oop, just a scratch.
If ur bong.. jumping off of a brig.. and ur cord stnapes u can brack ur neck or get hurt in some kind of way.
And you can swim
Cord snap is a faster death
