I hate it, hate it, hate it.
I don't like the part about torturing kids, but the part I really hate is using water to do it. To be safe in the water, a human being needs to learn to relax and stop fighting it. Relaxed breathing, floating, etc.
I wonder how much the fire department would charge to test my fire safety skills by coming over and setting my house on fire...
