"I'm good proof of that principle.  (Maybe most of us are.)  If I breathe out, I'm heavier than water.  If I breathe in, I can float."

"I can't float.  What I can do is roll on my back and minimize the effort I have to do to keep my mouth and nose above water. Gentile flog kicks or arm strokes to keep a little movement is what I must do to stay on the surface.   You…"
