After explaining what waterboarding was to my coworker, he proudly proclaimed that waterboarding isn't torture and that he could last longer than 30 seconds. So I challenged him.

I told him I'd give him $1 for every second he'd last being waterboarded. Here's what happened.

3. At least this fellow was good natured about it
Let's see how long Hannity lasts. I'll bet that he doesn't do any better than this fellow and still won't admit that it's torture.

4. Sean Hannity's never going to go through with his so-called water boarding for charity
He'll see videos like this and wuss out like the sissy boy he is.
