       I DON'T LIKE SWI...sorry. I don't like swimming I also don't like this idea. -1.

       Interesting idea, but no need to shout, as they say. Of course, the lazy can already buy those propeller thingies featured so heavily in James Bond films.

       Old scam – Electric Swim Fin – now defunct.

       Here, let me hand you this 12 volt battery - now try swimming away before you sink. Fishbone.

       something that taps sharply beneath each knee alternately, giving the traditional kneejerk reactions might be safer

       Bad - your ankles can't handle it. I've seen scuba divers use a neat hand-held propeller thing, though. You hang on and it pulls it you around through the water.

       You are all overlooking the obvious benefit. Electric appliances submerged in water tend to have a shockingly fatal end. Let the lazy/stupid people go into the ocean with their electric flippers, just make sure it's deep enough that the next group can't see their remains.

Move this one to the "population control" section and it works for me.

       One might reasonably assume that such appliances are built to be submerged.
