what a ****ed up contest.. drink as much water as you can and hold it all in.. to win a wii. Sad how she was doing it for her kids.

the radio station fires 10 staff but check this out... wtf.

"The DJs had made comments joking about people dying from water intoxication during the show"

"Two hours in to the contest, a female caller, who identified herself as Eva, phoned in to warn the radio station that drinking too much water can kill. She said, "Those people that are drinking all that water can get sick and possibly die from water intoxication." One DJ replied, "We are aware of that," while another added, "They signed releases, so we're not responsible. It's ok.""

Shouldn't the contest people know that you can drown yourself from drinking too much water?

thats a ridiculously irresponsible thing for the radio show to do, the fact that she was a mother just makes it even more f*cked up.

Does anyone reckon the station made her sign a waiver or something along those lines?
I wouldn't even hold my piss in for a vintage left-handed Les Paul. A|ctually, I'd have a go, but you get the point. It can cause irreversable damage to your bladder, or worse, as we have just discovered.
