My wife, mother, and father were playing a board game called “Worst Case Scenario”, which asks what you should do in different dangerous situations.
My mother got the following one:
How To Breathe During A Freefall While Parachuting:
A. Take slow, deep, breaths.
B. Take quick, short, breaths.
C. You do not need to breath at all through your mouth or nose. You will breath through your skin.
The answer was C.
I have “researched” this through the internet, finding conflicting answers.
For example, Skydiving Magazine says yes, it does and even says the Discovery Channel backs them up…
However, Answerbag says no.
What’s the Straight Dope?
