Oh lordy, the world is spinning and I'm going to die.
This is William Howard Taft, the fattest president the United States has ever seen weighing an astonishing 354 pounds! After a long day of breaking up trusts and monopolies, Taft decided it was time for a bath.
My heart rate is about 10000 BPM, and it's not cause I'm fat!!
After about 10 minutes of just straight-up chillin', Taft thought his baths just wouldn't be the same without his Cheer Up Buttercup Lush bath bomb.
Taft tries to get out of the bath tub, but then realizes he's STUCK! He squiggles and wiggles trying to inch his way out, but that gets him absolutely nowhere.
I should probably lose some weight...
After Taft realized he was stuck, he began to panic which led to an unnecessary fight or flight response and the positive feedback cycle was initiated.
The receptors pick up his emotions of dread and fear, this information is sent along the afferent pathway to the control center and responds by sending high amounts of cortisol and adrenaline. That information is then sent down the efferent pathway to the effector and determines that the loop should continue, causing a fight or flight response for an unnecessary situation which resulted in some not very fun symptoms.
Luckily, Taft was rescued and his symptoms were gone and everything was back to normal the next day.
