Prior to yesterday the coldest official skin swim on record was set on August 27th 2013. At that time the Scientific-o-meter registered 8.3C (46.9) and macho-meter.v1 registered 45.3. Since that time both the Patriarch-o-meter and macho-meters have been upgraded/replaced with newer models. (i.e. the originals died so we jumped on amazon and bought replacements at a hefty price tag of about $4.) Remaining constant since the 2013 record has been Scientific-o-meter which was generously donated to the Klode Kru by AleWife's Husband.
While the macho-meter would nominate this morning's swim as a record breaker from yesterday's amazing swim (43.2) the Patriarch-o-meter nominates yesterday's swim as the record breaker (44.1 vs 44.6). As the constant between the previous 2013 record and today's record swim is the Scientific-o-meter readings 8.3C vs 7.3C the Scientific-o-meter would nominate this morning's swim as the record.
As a result, I'd like to make the following proposal:
- Declare this morning's swim as the "official" skin swim record at 7.3C (45.1)
- Declare yesterday's swim as the "unofficial" skin swim record at 44.1.
- ...and allow those who swam/witnessed this morning's swim to brag that the "unofficial unofficial" record skin swim water temp is 43.2.
So what say ye? Do we have an accord? (Post a comment and voice your opinion)
By the way....not only did itch swim skin this morning he also returned with 8 golf balls!!!
