The Irish Sea - Apropos of Nothing
I just stumbled across the fact that the Irish Sea is considered to be the most radioactive sea in the world. Apparently, there is a nuclear reprocessing plant that dumps 8 million liters of low-level radioactive water each day into the Irish Sea. Perhaps we should have another category of records for swims there for highest levels of radioactivity based on post-swim geigercounter measurement. Since I live very close to Three Mile Island, we could have a competition between Irish Sea swimmers and Susquehanna River swimmers for world records in the radioactive swim category.
