If it's Brezsny, I must be Wednesding

This week, Brezsny tells the Gemini:

Using your common sense, you might assume you could swim faster through water than through syrup. But research published by Professor Edward Cussler has shown that's not true. In his paper "Will Humans Swim Faster or Slower in Syrup?", he proved that the breaststroke can be done with equal speed in both mediums. Keep that in mind, Gemini. Your surroundings may sometimes feel dense in the coming weeks--more like syrup than water. But as long as you don't buy into the fear that life will be more difficult and slow-going, you'll be able to glide along with just as much grace as you've enjoyed recently.

Can't complain about that. I still have to imagine that syrup would be more tiring.
