Personal floatation devices (pfds) are not just more friendly than impersonal floatation devices, they are essential pieces of safety equipment for kayaking and paddle sports. Other Pfds, or life jackets if you prefer, are ideal for wakeboarding, water skiing and tubing.
But strange internet wizard, you ask, why do I need a life jacket. Let me ask you this, do you like drowning? Of course you don’t, unless the drowning is in some kind of desirable liquid or non newtonian fluid. I don’t want anything bad to happen to you, so please get a PFD for my sake, I cannot stand all of this worrying.
I imagine a world where everyone wears a life jacket all of the time. Not because they are afraid of flooding or maybe a gravitational anomaly that sends us all rocketing into the nearest body of water. No, a world where everyone wears pfds because they are just so cool looking. To me, nothing is more attractive in a person than buoyancy. I know it seems shallow, but really buoyancy is important on a deeper level, like the water that you don’t want to drown in. Get a PFD because, like the antidote, its one of those items that if you regret not having one it’s already too late.
