First off, I use shark tanks all the time. Any time I’m swimming in fact, even in a swimming pool (public or private). If you think that’s weird, recall that everyone laughed at Ralph Nader when he wanted to bottle cow farts to store methane. But I think we all know Ralph had the last laugh.
And second, Nyad completed the swim in only 52 hours, which is just a real kick in the Speedo. I spent 36 hours this summer watching Game of Thrones from start to finish, and then spent about 16-ish hours brooding over how the second-to-last episode ended. Who’s more impressive? You decide.
And another thing: there were jellyfish in that water and jellyfish have always been really rude to me at parties.
