Re: Water log! Is it possible to hydrate too much?

Melo, that's a great piece of advice for everyone. But it was a contest. Thirst had nothing to do with the amount of liquid consumed by the participants in the contest. The prize(s) may not have worth the risk, but some people love taking chances, even if it means death for them at the end. To me, its irrational to go that way, for recognition, or a small prize.

I saw a similar story from Africa a few years ago. The drink wasn't water, but a sort of a homemade liquor. The rules in that contest were almost the same, as in the story told here. The winner was a young boy, who was to get married in two days, after the contest was held. Unfortunately, he died from drinking too much of the juice in the contest. He didn't collect the winner's prize; nor got married to the beautiful girl, and make her his wife.

Again, some folks enjoys doing strange things, without compromising it.

I'll advise others not to partake in over-drinking of any sort of liquids, for their own good.

This is indeed a sad story, but the ultimate price must be paid sometimes, for others to learn a lesson.
