That has to be the dumbest comparison ever. Big difference in-between a situation you put yourself in, and being tied down and having it forced on you.
Next time you flip, have someone hold your head under until you start to choke, then instead of grabbing a quick breath, they will keep holding your head down until your lungs fill with water. Then when you are near death, you can be let up to puke your guts out and before you can recover, do it again. Then, and only then you will have a fair comparison.
