Alright, Johnny Badass. I'd love to see you swim across the Mississippi. Just know that we're not fishing out your body and are going to let you float out to sea.
The currents in the MS are what kill you. The MS is turbulent, it's like a washing machine. There are under toes everywhere. I do believe that someone could and has done it. But everyone saying it's not that hard is dumb. When a MS river under toe sucks you under you aren't coming up alive if at all, and I don't care if you are Michael Phelps you aren't out swimming that current. If anyone has actually done it they can consider themselves as lucky as the powerball winner, because luck is the only thing that kept them alive.
Are we talking here in Baton Rouge right underneath the bridge of something like that?
I say no fricking way, Michael Phelps himself would lose his life to that river.
