Haredi guy floating in the men only beach of the Dead Sea.
This so reminded me of the story of the man who can’t fall asleep because he can’t decide if he should sleep with his beard above or below the blanket. The answer here is clear: beard above the water.
The Dead Sea seawater has an exceptionally high density, which makes swimming there more floating than swimming.
When I was in the second grade my legs were covered in a strange kind of eczema that didn’t itch so much but was pretty unsightly. Then the family took a trip to the Dead Sea and my condition was cured for good.
