Yeah, it's called water toxicifacation I guess. Pretty scary, but yeah, I guess it's possible.

Yeah, a little cold, but I'd agree. But how many people do you think even KNOW about that if you drink way too much water you'll die? Until today, I didn't. I think a lot of people probably don't know about it either.

I just thought it was really interesting and a bit scary.

They become so dehydrated that they attempt to replenish their body's water supply and they drown themselves in the process.
