You got a worthy topic to debate, especially at work. The best way to find out is to experiment. Although this year's dry whether may prevent you from achieving any degree of understanding any time soon. Under the circumstances, this becomes of paramount importance to have alert volunteer experimentalists outdoors at all times.
If you do not fill like waiting with folded hands, visit a near-by pool. Let one of your co-workers swim fast and another slow. The third may perhaps stay still while the other two enjoy their swim.
On their emergence from the pool, dry them up with identical towels (see there is no mischief drying the female volunteers). Weight the towels afterwards. Compare the weights. Repeat the experiment several times in order to get statistically sound results. Will do good to your health too.
Please let me know of your findings.
