The 'man who doesn't breathe' can hold breath for 22 minutes

'Human Dolphin' Can Hold Breath For More Than 20 Minutes

Looking to release your inner dolphin? Well, Danish diver Stig Severinsen is here to help.

Known as "the man who doesn't breathe," Severinsen holds the world record for holding his breath underwater for 22 minutes.

Now he wants to teach others how to improve their lives by breathing right, and he's released a book called Breathology.

With the tag lines, "Awaken your inner dolphin and dive inside yourself," and, "Hold your breath and discover ultimate freedom," Severinsen claims that his breathing techniques can help improve your health and reduce your stress.

But let's be honest - nothing beats the Ace Ventura dolphin technique.

That's very interesting. I think it's funny that so many people believe that a man can walk on water, but find it hard to believe that some people can adapt to certain things, like holding your breath longer. It's easier for them to call B.S. where science is concerned than it is where ancient fairytales are concerned.

Are you saying he's Jesus? I don't think he is.

Yes you are right. Our only Lord and Savior Jesus Christ did indeed walk on water. One of His many, many miracals while on earth. He is the true Son of God and will return.

You've been holding YOUR breath to long if you believe that.
Prove to me Jesus wasn't as big a phony as ever lived.

That would qualify him to be a member of Congress, wouldn't it?

Well not a member of congress, more like President. At least a little more brain active than the one we now have.

Amazing. I guess he's not a smoker :-) I wonder what technique his book uncovers? We all breathe liquid prior to our birth, somehow he must have taught his body to remember/revert.
