Oh, that was useful! Don't drop your butt when surfacing. Got it now. Thanks!

You spelled "nosremE" wrong, kcalS.

Ben, I don't think you should masquerade as Ogged. It's confusing and frightening.

Yeah, Ben, you little bitch.

You young people should be out in the sun trying to negotiate some fornication.

Was that really meant to be breast stroke?

Am I missing a joke?

No -- I know it was a straight line, but I really couldn't work out from the picture what they were doing. Since I don't spend time underwater at my local pool -- and have, in any case, never seen anyone swim like that anywhere -- I couldn't recognise the motion. I can't see what the arms are doing at all. But the legs seemed to be doing breast stroke-ish kicks.

And most of the people I ever see doing it have their heads out of the water at all times. They look, mutatis mutandis, like sphinxes, mostly submereged in a current.

Californians may now laugh once more. But I am genuinely curious.

Right, the Russian ladies at the pool keep their heads out of the water and chat the whole time. This diagram explains the racing stroke well.

Thanks. It really is nothing like the Russian lady conversational stroke which I was thinking of.

Did some swimming in the ocean earlier: snapping the hips? Totally works! I didn't even have to know what it meant, it still worked!

Yeah, I'm not sure what that means, either, Sifu.
