Submission You Can Now Officially Swim at the North Pole->

ynososiduts writes: "When one thinks of the North Pole, one thinks of solid ice and Santa. Well, it is now a mix of ice and water with no place for Santa's Workshop (perhaps an obvious sign of global warming). With these recent changes, a man is attempting to swim 1 kilometer through the 28.7F or -1.8C water. He had the previous record of swimming a kilometer in 0C water off Antarctica. Apparently he has the ability to raise his body temperature before swimming to withstand the extreme cold. Something that has earned him the nickname of "The Polar Bear"."
