What is a record? Who says?
Ben Lecomte will swim across the Pacific Ocean in an attempt to set the Guinness World Record for accomplishing the longest swim without a flotation device - yet he will be wearing a wetsuit (and btw also with flippers and snorkle) Doesn't a wetsuit help with floatation? If this is true, what does it say about the credibility of Guiness Records? Who in the opinion of you - members of this site - is a credible authority to verify a World Record??? http://www.utsa.edu/today/2012/05/benlecomte.html
