IS THE SWIRLY KISSING COUSINS TO WATERBOARDING?


Lots of talk and writings on WBing for obvious reasons. An editorial piece I read (like zillions of others) explored both sides of the issue. Is Waterboarding humane? Is it the right thing to do (during wartime interrogation) to extract vital information? The “kissing cousins” thing was actually a comment made by RghtWingman76 about the article. His real comment read…

“Waterboarding is not torture, we did it all the time as children, it's called a ‘swirly’ when you get it in high-school. The only difference is kids used toilet water.”

Wondering if their was any merit to this Limbaugh-like statement I did a little Wiki searching for both definitions. Here’s what I found. You be the judge.

Swirly (or Swirlie):
The act of holding the victim upside down with his or her head in the toilet bowl, and flushing. Typically perpetrated by two or more older, larger individuals. More commonly known as bogwashing in the U.K.



Waterboarding:
It is a form of torture that consists of immobilizing the victim on his or her back with the head inclined downwards. Then pouring water over the face and into the breathing passages, causing the captive to believe he or she is dying.

  2. Waterboarding is not torture.

    Hooking up a set of jumper cables to the "suspects" balls and the other end to a car battery to shock them while waterboarding is torture.

  16. I think waterboarding is torture. I don't care if we would get information, why should we become animals and sadists even to win a war?

    What happens to the people who carry out waterboarding? Do they have nightmares? Are they also traumatized or do they become monsters? People who think it isn't torture could be waterboarded, since thy don't think it is so bad, and then get back to us on the subject.

  21. I think I would prefer a Swirlie to Waterboarding. That sounds absolutely horrible. Plus, I always thought that was Chinese Water Torture?

  22. As someone who can't even put her head under water for fear of drowning (and I used to put my head under all the time - what the hell happened?) I'd be scared crapless of being waterboarded.

  23. Raising 11 kids I've seen my fair share of water boarding, I mean swirlies.

  24. I'm not sure... I think you can breathe more in a swirly... but more stinky.

  25. Interesting comparison. I hadn't heard of a swirly until I was in uni.
