There's nothing wrong with what I said. Heat flows from hot to
cold. If the water temperature was 98.6 there'd be no heat loss.
If it was hotter, the ape/man/humanoid would overheat. If the
water was cooler but the air outside was hotter, he'd have to
switch between the two.

1) we aren't talking about 1995
2) you can switch back and forth rapidly enough to spend many hours
in water and yet keep the body temperature constant.
3) Even cattle know enough to find high ground around noon to get
breeze to keep cool. I've seen it.

Is it 1995?
