Does anyone know anyone who has actually done it?

Although I'll probably never get to do it myself, I'm so curious to know what it feels like...

I thought Mayol had a whole chapter on this in one of his books?

I seem to remember that navy divers have flooded one lung at a time, but never allowed to flood both lungs for safety reasons. He also mentioned that rats and dogs were immersed for up to an hour and survived- he also states that they all died a few hours later due to the extreme work of breathing (WOB) that overtaxed that animals.
