how are we doing guys?
I'm probably fitter than most of my swimming friends too
you'd be fucked
people don't really swim anyway
Because that's what I can do rather than actually being able to swim properly
It's going fine for me thanks (until such time as I fall in some water, presumably).
as a parent would you not seriously worry about your kid falling into water?
I'll take my car to work, you take your board.
my office is in atlantis. good luck getting parked.
the water line barely went past my knees. pretty sure they were taking the piss
there were in our school. This was like in year 9 as well.
I didn't have them but I did dive in holding my nose which was apparently HI LARIOUS
everyone in our group either looked pale and malnourished or were physically disabled. hmm.
which was extremely lame. It's like a useful skill, not throwing the javelin or something. Should be taught properly
We had a big, pop-up pool in one of the playgrounds. My main memory of this is having to get proper naked in the classroom when getting changed.
Oh, and putting arm bands on my arms and legs and bobbing about. That was fun.
i mean my secondary school had a tiny one, but i don't think it was ever used.
So I guess the school had a fair bit of money and the ability to swim was kind of essential.
I never got any good at it.
Excellent. I over-thought my reply, obviously.
Also, swimming: not a thing.
childhood trauma man. Glug glug sink
not any of the proper strokes though. my head's naturally really buoyant so i'm fine
I think it's mainly to spite the people who are all like 'COME IN THE POOL!! GOING IN THE POOL IS THE BEST THING IN LIFE!! WHY WON'T YOU COME IN THE POOL?! YOU'RE NOT A REAL PERSON IF YOU DON'T LIKE COMING IN THE POOL!!'
you guys are gonna be pretty fucked
