    Always wear a bathing suit when swimming. Do Not wear heavy clothing, like jeans. You'll sink like a stone!
    I was over my head in a lake. I was sinking, further down. I could not swim up. When I tore the jeans off, I was then able to swim to the surface. Make what you want out of it.

    As for this comment causing a panic among  some imiginary drowning person. That's ridiculous!

    Don't wear heavy clothing when swimming. That's just plain common sense. When struggling in a desperate situation like almost drowning one does not need an extra ten pounds pulling them downward.

    You're right about the water being a type of outer space bigjac.

    My Father always said "Don't go near the water till you learn how to swim" and in his joking way, he was right.

    Those commenters can swim in jeans, slacks, whatever, but it's still not the safe thing to do.
