The German Man Who Swims To Work Because It's Faster Than Commuting

August 11, 2017

Seen here about to drown, this is a short video of German man Benjamin David, who, fed up with the traffic congestion in Munich, decided to start swimming to work instead of taking traditional transportation. He says it only takes around twelve minutes in the river, and is significantly faster than driving or taking a bus or bicycle. Plus he probably smells like shit so coworkers keep their distance. That's cool, I actually swim to work too. Except I take the sewers. "There's a rat gnawing on your leg." It's cool, that's how they say hello -- like dogs sniffing asses. The Ninja Turtles taught me that.

Keep going for the video while I try to figure out how he swims against that current on the way home.

Thanks to Zootghost, who's agrees somebody needs to invest in a jetpack.

    I'd be really tempted to try and pee on him.

    Every morning.

    Hey, this is a family blog. Keep your fetish out of this.

    I like the way you think.

    two things:

    1. If he goes downstream when going to work, how does he get home? bus?

    2. If I were him, I would move downstream from work so I could get home faster instead of getting to work faster.

    Walk upstream, swim downstream in the way home too.

    I too have questions.
    That river seems a bit iffy to me, does he just drip dry or does he shower off the run off and ants clinging to him to survive?
    That sure doesn't look like enough clothes in his red floaty kettle bell thingy.

    I wonder what he does for work?

    I nominate "Red Floaty Kettle Bell Thingy" as punk band name of the year

  • Bling Nye

    I was thinking more along the lines of a punk song....

    "Whoaaaaaooohhooohhhohhhhh
    Red Floaty Kettle Bell Thingy
    You're way better than a dinghy
    Red Floaty Kettle Bell Thingy
    You fucking make me wanna kill kill kill
    Whooaaaaahhhoooohhhhohohohohhhhh
    Oi! Oi! Oi!"

    But you can sleep in longer if you get to work faster.
