Main Question or Discussion Point

This may seem weird, but after a day of acid reflux here goes:

Let's say you could shrink yourself down, and get swallowed alive by a healthy woman -- would her stomach be able to dissolve you bones and all? Or would you suffocate before feeling any considerable burning? Would you even feel any burn at all?

Basically, how would your epidermis react in the environment of the stomach and its juices? Not your esophagus feeling reflux, or your skin coming into contact with diluted vomit, but the internal environment of the stomach.

Just how strong is our stomach acid?

And why a hypothetical woman? Well who wants to discuss a dudes insides?
