Men Overboard!

Creepy. A body washed up right next to the marina yesterday afternoon. When I was Googling for news on the event, I discovered that a surprising number of bodies wash up in the Great Lakes. Unidentified bodies. How does it get to the point where you disappear into Lake Ontario and it barely makes the news? And then I got to remembering an old statistic from boat school somewhere down the line. More than half the men found in the water have their pants undone. That's because they often fall overboard while peeing. Men, be careful out there. I am the first to acknowledge that those extra dangly bits of skin come fraught with all sorts of problems and danger.
