Underwater Poker Game From 1951 Is Our Photo Of The Day (PHOTO)

We thought poker was a stressful game on land, so we can't fathom the added pressure of holding your breath underwater while playing a hand. Yet this 1951 photograph taken in Weeki Wachee Springs, Florida only fills us with the happiest of feelings.

The talented Floridian gamblers are identified as Dick and Shirley Woolery, Bud and Patsie Boyett, and Rudy and Thelma Halabuck. (While we certainly appreciate the aesthetic of this vintage performance, we do not recommend trying this one at home.)
