I subscribe to Destin Sandlin’s YouTube channel, Smarter Every Day.

I may not be smarter but I enjoy it.

Destin Sandlin, is an Alabama-based rocket engineer whose popular YouTube channel “Smarter Every Day” videos have become an educational staple in high school and college classrooms.

This is a fun little video.

He’s the guy who did the ‘Slo-mo’ video of Jellyfish stings.

I hate cold water and will not be participating in any challenge that involves water colder than 80 degrees.

I hear ya about cold water, Geezer. When we go to the lake, Scott jumps right in and I do the inch-by-inch thing. Sometimes it’s just too cold altogether.

Also not a cold water fan.

I do the optical inch-by-inch thing.

I do the optical inch-by-inch thing.

I see what geoff did there.

One cold winter night I ran out and jumped into the spa. There was steam coming off the water so I didn’t hesitate.
Bad idea.
The water temperature was about 80 and the air temp was about 30 (thus the deceiving mist).
I stayed in the water about 5 seconds before I realized something was wrong. I jumped out and scrambled back inside with my teeth chattering and shivering like crazy. I really felt like I was in the first stages of hypothermia.
