That's true, and I didn't know about the dangers of water specifically, but most people know that anything can be dangerous if done to ridiculously excessive levels. I assume there's risk involved in trying to eat 100 hot dogs, trying to hold your breath for minutes on end, or trying to set a record for not sleeping. I don't neccesarily know why they're dangerous (with holding your breath I do) but they simply don't sound smart to me.
Natural selection is too harsh for this though.
