just remember that since its so dense, you have to work to get it out of your lungs, and as long as its in there you don't get any oxygen...

You know, when he tells you not to try something at home, it shouldn't be so tempting to do so.

What Lobo said.
Because sulfur hexaflouride so much denser than air, it has a tendency to sit in the bottom of your lungs, reducing their functional capacity and effectively asphyxiating you.

I have heard that hanging upside-down for awhile can help you breathe it out, but I don't know how true that is. Of course, hanging upside-down for too long can cause other problems...
