Congratulations, El Paso

Congratulations, El Paso, TX, you’ve just been eliminated from our list of possible locations for the first annual Dennis Culver day. Hooray for you.

The bad news is, you’ve been named the sweatiest city in the United States by research scientist Tim Long.

By Long's calculations, in just four hours, El Paso's residents produce enough sweat to fill an Olympic swimming pool, with individuals shedding more than 36 fluid ounces of perspiration an hour.

For the dubious honor, El Paso Mayor Joe Wardy will receive a year's supply of Red Zone antiperspirant from Old Spice, a brand owned by consumer products company Procter & Gamble Co. and the sponsor of the study.

Also, congratulations to anyone who doesn’t work for research scientist Tim Long. Our condolences to the four runners up, Greenville, Phoenix, Corpus Christi and New Orleans – too sweaty to host Dennis Culver Day, but not sweaty enough for a pile of Old Spice.
