Cold water experimentation.

With the drop in sea temperatures, we’ve taken the opportunity to run some tests under lab conditions.  First, there was the “Do wetsuits stop your eyes from freezing closed?” Test.  The results were inconclusive.  It seems that 50% of swimmers can avoid frozen-eye-syndrome by wearing a wetsuit, while 50% can not.

50% frozen-eyed in the wetsuit sample of Dave and Brian.

100%  of togs swimmers contract it, though.

The second test was the Riana Parson’s “What would happen if two feet went swimming alone?” test.  It appears they would cause the sun to come up and then trigger an argument of the “Mine! No – Mine!” kind.
