OriginEdit

Angelo Faticoni was a contortionist who went by the name “Human Cork” for his peculiar buoyancy. He discovered during his childhood that he was able to float for long periods of time, sometimes up to 8 or more hours. He has been placed inside a closed sack with a twenty-pound cannonball, dropped in the water and would pop up a few minutes later. When doctors examined him, they had him float in a tank for fifteen hours and could not understand his ability, only hypothesizing that he had unusual internal organs. He promised to reveal his secret but died before he was able to.

The chair is from when he tied a chair weighted with lead to himself and then swam the Hudson River. The lead is long gone and so is the rope that he was tied to it with.

EffectsEdit

When the person is tied to the chair and dropped in deep enough water, they will be able to float for long amounts of time and with weight attached to them. The chair can be removed and the person will still float afterwards.
