    Well…..because I am really cool I will take s stab at this one. His real name was Samuel Clemens. He chose the pen name because on the Mississippi River they would drop a piece of Twain into the water to find out what the depth was, and would Mark the rope at the water level. That way when they pulled the rope out they could know the depth by knowing different marks on the rope. Am I right am I right?

    Black WOD but w/ red band pullups – 7:28
    First time using the red band. Used green band last time with a time of 7:24, so only added 4 seconds. I’m okay with that 🙂
