Dear 100 Hour Board,
Does the human body sweat when we go swimming? Also if the body doesn't sweat when we swim because the water cools the body off, how cold does the wind have to be before the body will stop sweating, because the wind is cooling the body off enough so we don't have to sweat?

I used to swim in high school, and on occasion I perspired rather heavily. About the wind, there are too many factors involved to give you an exact temperature. It depends on surface area of skin, level of activity, thickness of clothes, humidity, wind speed, and maybe some other things I can't think of right now.
