You can do this with latex stockings as well, albeit to a much lesser degree because they're not typically made with any excess latex. But atleast with stockings you can use the restroom with ease and not a single refill needed.

I was thinking that you wouldn't want to be out on a boat and fall overboard wearing those.

It would be easy to locate the corpse anyway.

Reminds me of a joke from the 1960s -- How can you tell if a woman is wearing pantyhose? When she passes gas, her ankles swell.

Since methane is lighter than air, a trip to Taco Bell might turn you into a dirigible.

Phideaux is wrong. A "dirigible" is a steerable lighter-than-air craft*, and I doubt if these pants have any steering mechanism.

* according to, the word "is from Latin dirigere: 'to direct.'"

It would be similar to a hang glider, steered by shifting body weight. It would have the added advantage of being able to change the relative positions of the centers of lift of each leg. Floating upside down over the landscape might not be much fun, but you always have to suffer for your art.
