I like to swim whith my friends and I wear shorts, always when we go into the water, the shorts inflates as.. , even my pockets come out and float like balloons on the water. This is funny :D Did you ever notice this and why is it happening?
When I sit down on the couch the pockets do not get out.

The air is trapped inside the legs of your shorts, and as you submerge the air is forced higher into the shorts, “inflating” the shorts legs.
