      not technically, but I did once know a girl who could hold her breath for 15 minutes (as if she was swimming, that is)

      A mermaid is a mythological aquatic creature with a female human head and torso and the tail of a fish. Mermaids have a broad representation in folklore, literature, and popular culture.

      No, I have not seen it.

      I have bee a fisherman, all my working days ... and never saw one ... though Fishermen, who usually have good health and diet ... start seeing the mermaids, when they've been out at sea for too long ...

      The too long ... can vary from a week out there, to a few months out there ... but it depends on the health of the individual fisherman, his appetite, and the ship's fish-hold capacity ... what makes the Mermaid  ... a Political question.

      A good Captain, therefore, knows when its time to head back home.

    I saw the movie Splash with Darryl Hannah and Tom Hanks, does that count?

      that dosent count dear, i m sure  the question was, have you seen a mermaid for real and not have you seen an imaginary mermaid from a movie.

    Hi melglyn. It's not a mermaid of the sea, and call me crazy; but I have a picture I took of a deep brook in Ireland, and when it was developed there was something in the grass under the water that looks exactly like a little water nymph. I know it isn't, but it's fun to think it might be.

    well thats good to know as i have only seen them in the movies, and have heard mysterious things about them belonging to the water spirits and would occasionaly seduce and drown sailors on the sea. I am curious as to what they really look like, excluding the beautiful faces, long hair, perfect figure, and colourful fish tail as i see on tv, and then throwing in a bald head, fish eye and shark teeth, scally gray skin, fins and gills everywhere and a giant fish tail.

      Contrary to popular belief, the top half of their bodies are a fish while the bottom half are human legs. smile

        Well, if something like that is seducing sailors, that's just creepy.

          lol. Creepy indeed, because i have never heard of mermaid upside down.

            Perhaps, if you thought for a moment, what exactly is at the top front and middle of a woman's legs and see if you find the same thing on a fish? smile

              does it not make more sense when there is a supposed topless female with perky breasts smiling at you on the sea than a fish swinging human legs at you.

                Doesn't matter, I was merely pointing out that if one were to attempt to make love to a mermaid with a fish bottom, they should just make it with a fish, instead. Same thing. smile

          Why is it creepy? Are you suggesting it isn't creepy for a sailor to make love to a mermaid with a fish for a bottom half? Where then, would the sailor put his willy? lol

            Now you're being coarse. Who was thinking willies? They jump in chasing the beauty of the mermaid. Who sees a fish as beautiful. But, I see your point. Some guys are into legs.

              now when would the sailor have the time to see those legs since its down part is usually under water, the fish might as well be swimming upside down too, to show case the legs.

      Cute video, but I still say any guy that would go that route is creepy. Pretty legs or not.
