nothing would happen if it was not allowed some bending in the core. Assuming there is some bouyancy somewhere that it could push right or left it would begin to rotate.

The video of charles rolling about occurse because he bends sideways...the lungs get outside the midline of the body and start to float, which caues the body to start to twist. But that's just a party trick, you don't use that in swimming. At least I don't see anyone using that who is skilled.
