Inhaling that stuff does the opposite of helium, due to the fact that is heavier than air.

Sulfur Hexafluoride is a very heavy gas.

Gases are actually fluids. Just like water.

You can float anything on a fluid, as long as you're less dense than it (buoyant).

In this case, air is less dense than SF6, so the boat full of air floats on it. He then sinks the boat by pouring SF6 into it.

liquid and fluid are two different meanings. both gases and liquids are considered to be fluids.
