When you open your eyes underwater, do you ever worry that you'll drown?
This, of course, depends entirely on what room of the house I am in and how long I have been asleep. Naturally, awaking in such a fashion after a short nap in the upstairs closet is much more perilous then if I had just spent the night counting sheep on the living room sofa. Such dire straits beg the question, “How did the water get in so quickly?” Such flooding that could quickly bury the second floor would reduce the already infinitesimal chance of evolving gills before suffocating, let along the likelihood of the building being in any shape to build a raft from.
