    I saw that a few tempers don't know how to swim.
    I'm just curious about the rest.

    The last option or second last option.
    It depends on how bad [​IMG] .

    @RayorDragonFall : The middle option.

    People, please read the options through before posting.

    *Facepalm*

    I can swim quite good, but since 8 years back im allergic against chlorine >_< so i can't bath/swim in public pools.
    therefor i don't use to swim.. except a couple of times a year in a lake..

    I can only swim on my back, I drowned 3 times in my life (one was when I learned swimming on the back and was lying on water and river took me few meters on deeper water, cose I closed my eyes and was resting , and when I discovered that I dont have ground under my feet I started drowning, If my mother werent there I would propably die (but that was lot of years in the past from now).

    ..Of course! I love swimming [​IMG]

    Taught myself one day..kinda in a weird way. My dad was trying to teach me at a pool for like 3 days at a hotel, but nothing worked..then later that day I slipped into the deep end, and thought I was gonna drown. Somehow though, I swam to the shallow end again..and after that day I started swimming like crazy. Very fun [​IMG]

    I love swimming! ever since I was a kid, I swim like a fish. My parents made me and my sister go to swimming lessons during the summer (mostly to get us out of the house and make us stop playing nintendo all day)

    I too, am allergic to Chlorine tho, so I could never open my eyes in the pool water or they would swell up and get bloodshot and look terrible. I would wear goggles or something...but I could open my eyes in regular water just fine...and nowadays they've developed non-chlorine pool chemicals, so that's good for me!

    ...I wish I had a pool.

    I took some classes when I was younger, I was pretty good at it too. But then a few years in a row I didn't swim and so the talent was forgotten. Ever since then I've been fairly bad at it.
