Apparently the Earth's Geographic North Pole is currently composed of a mix of ice and water loose enough to swim through. I find this surprisingly believable, having just suffered through my town's all-time-high of 107 degrees. I mean, really, it's Montana!!
Of course, since it's possible, it now must be done, and Lewis Gordon Pugh is going to try it. Pugh previously achieved a cold-temperature swim record of 1 kilometer at 32 degrees off the coast of Antarctica wearing only a swim cap and Speedos. Now he's going to beat that, with 1 kilometer at 29 degrees at the North Pole.
It's not going to be a pleasant swim, but that's not the point. The point is that there is water at all. A mere five years ago, this would have been impossible. And now, there's going to be a guy swimming at the North Pole!
OH WHAT WILL COME OF SANTA!!!
