I bet he lasted longer than that guy from Vanity Fair
A colleague from high school recently subjected himself to waterboarding as part of a public art display in NYC last week. No, seriously. You can read about the whole thing here.
If given the opportunity would I volunteer to give it a shot? Nope. Based on Christopher Hitchens' description in the July issue of Vanity Fair I don't see how anyone can go around calling it anything but torture. Or, as he put it, "if waterboarding does not constitute torture, then there is no such thing as torture."
Drowning, simulated or otherwise = the suck.
