One place I won't be swimming

Antarctica.

1000m in 19 minutes by Brit Lewis Pugh
.

I'd swim that fast, too, if I was in 32*F water and didn't want to die instantaneously.

That's why you have to prove you can swim at least 50m in order to graduate high school in Alaska. The water is often so damn cold, you'll die in 10 minutes if you don't get out.

Sheesh. I'll try and remember that the next time I jump in a pool that's in the mid 70s and I'm complaining that it's cold. Yikes!
