I've got some biotic lotion to spray on her. For the jelly fish. That's the ticket.

I'd do the Australian crawl into her shark cage, and then I'd turn her over for some backstroke action.

In juvenile parlance, a sizable pair of mammaries could be juxtaposed with flotation devices, though this assumes greater buoyancy than the actual density of said protuberances based on their typical composition.

Don't people swim from Cuba to Florida all the time? I guess usually they have inner tubes but still.

And how could you swim in a shark cage?

3. Tow it behind a boat.

Anyone know what species in particular all the swimmers are terrified of? Oceanic White Tips? Tigers? Seems odd to me that that particular swim should be so much more dangerous than some others.

Most girls with a swimmers build have really nice shoulder and back muscles and tend to have smaller looking chests.  Partly to blame since a lot of swimmers are very lean and have a very low percentage of body fat that typically results in small breasts.

Do you think those are the same suits that real swimmers wear? Women's swim suits can be either designed to show off the body or designed to streamline the body for less drag. The latter kind flattens the boobs significantly.

You don't really think they were wearing normal speedo type swimsuits do you? I mean besides the fact that their "enhancements" would have helped, I'd be willing to bet those suits were designed to show off their assets. For instance, think of how often Pamela Anderson did the slow run with the bouncing boobies in that show. Normal speedo swimsuits would have kept even them from bouncing so freely.

I was under the impression, which a quick GIS seems to confirm, that open-water swimmers tend to have substantially more body fat than pool swimmers, especially if they're swimming in colder water.

Gough: I was under the impression, which a quick GIS seems to confirm, that open-water swimmers tend to have substantially more body fat than pool swimmers, especially if they're swimming in colder water.


They usually have more body fat stored up so they have energy to burn during their swim, and it helps with buoyancy. IIRC people who swim the English Channel lose 18lbs of fat along the way.

I was on swim team in middle school and early high school and was reasonably competitive.  The reason most of the women you see swimming competitively on TV/in the news are small-breasted/flat-chested is because their physiques are more aquadynamic (for lack of a better word).  Those of us who are more generously endowed get weeded out by the time we hit 10th grade -- beyond a certain size point, boobs just create too much drag.

/That said, I wouldn't trade 'em for all the Olympic Gold Medals in the world.  ;-)

frepnog: i think the point there was that busty girls still look busty even in super tight swimsuits.


Those are not a competition style suit.  And Implants tend not to get squished down very flat either.

The subcutaneous fat also help endure the cold water.

HiFiGuy: "McCardel has been talking to jellyfish experts in Australia, she said, to devise tactics to avoid the creatures."

Uhh, may I suggest talking to a Florida shark expert?

You know, Australia has like 95 of the top 100 most deadliest species on the planet. Or something like that. My numbers are probably exaggerated.

Guess she missed the news photo of a fisherman reeling in a shark when a great white gobbled that shark while it was being reeled in.

Which for me produced this effect ...

I'm going out on a limb, and mind you, this is also a matter of personal taste, and say that she is kind of cute.

Z-clipped:

I'm going to refrain from any sexist, leering remarks though, because my keyboard is kind of sticky.

thecpt: littlett's: Crudbucket: littlett's: thecpt: Had friends on the swim team in school and none of them looked chesty. They all complained that their shoulders and arms would be muscular which made everything smaller looking. Their chest muscles would give everything the perky look, though.

Most girls with a swimmers build have really nice shoulder and back muscles and tend to have smaller looking chests.  Partly to blame since a lot of swimmers are very lean and have a very low percentage of body fat that typically results in small breasts.

You do realize those are actresses.

I don't think they're considered actresses if its a documentary.


I believe they're "actresses".

I don't understand the deal with the shark cage. It's pretty safe to say that with a horde of boats noisily following her at close range, no shark will go anywhere near.
