You beat me to it. I had a near death drowning experience when I was young, and ever since I've thought it wouldn't be a bad way to go. Being rescued was very similar to another experience I had after eating a bottle of children's aspirin...stomach pumping. Neither was fun, but I guess better than the alternative. I was a trial to my mom when I was a kid.
