An Illustrated Guide to Ben Lecomte's Nightmares

This post should be titled "I'd rather take a cruise."
Ben Lecomte was the first person to swim 3,700 miles across the Atlantic in 1998. This spring, the 47-year-old Frenchman will step into the Pacific Ocean in Japan and, over the next five months, attempt to become the first swimmer to cover the 5,500 miles to California. He will swim eight hours a day—using flippers and a snorkel but no flotation device—then rest for 16 hours on his support boat.

I can't even.

Thanks Bruce!
