Dalph was a German Librarian and he wanted to look at fish and swim with them. So Dalph took an old waterbed, cut it up, glued it with Latex, and called it the Merman. Meanwhile, Dalph put his suit on and headed down to the water. But it was slow going and started to overheat. When body temperature rises, sweat begins to form in these glands. As sweat evaporates, heat is dissipated. If the temperature outside was cool, that could of save him. Unfortunately for Dalph, it was a scorching 97 Degrees. He began feeling the first symptoms of hyperthermia. He got to the lake less than 15 minutes. His temperature red-lined at 109 or 108 degrees. Right before he died, Dalph finally got his wish. He knew exactly what it felt to be a fish out of water, and he died of heatstroke.
