we just got an EE (named him Hannibal, after the roman general who used war elephants to scare his enemies) and he hasn't shown any kind of difficulty swimming, even though his pectorals are so big you can barely see his ventrals.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
