In Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Lithuania, Latvia and even as far as China and Russia people have been flocking to frozen lakes for no other reason but to dive in and doggy paddle their way across. Honestly brings new meaning to the phrase "blue balls" I tell you... Now why would they want to endure this ridiculously dangerous and temporarily 'erectile dysfunction' inducing act? To be honest I don’t know and my sources just don’t clarify this in any way. Maybe because some people enjoy nearly dying of hypothermia or looking like a complete tool as they wince in pain and turn as pale as a ginger haired teen, who knows, but they do it- and regularly.
Maybe water that cold destroys the part of the brain that enables you to remember the last time you dived into a liquid freezer and your manhood retreated faster than the French in ANY war they have ever participated in, or maybe it is that people are just suckers for punishment?
This applies to many a different, human nature'esque situations… Drugs are bad, smoking is bad, drinking is bad, unprotected sex is bad, too much red meat is bad, forced child labour in China/India is apparently bad (they do make the shit out of a Nike sneaker though), but of course something we learnt early in life while listening to our parents is- If we "shouldn’t" do something- we sure as hell ARE going to do it, and like, a lot!!!
What’s the worst thing that could happen?... well, you could DIE!... were all going to die eventually right so what’s the second worst thing that could happen?... well, you could die TODAY!... oh right, drugs ARE bad... *says Jimmy while shooting up in the corner with a smoke in his mouth, a bottle of vodka by his feet, still wearing the condom on his penis that tore- but she didn’t notice so its ok, his arteries clogging from the massive "all you can eat" steak marathon he had the night before and yes, wearing the Nike he purchased from some Asian man who guaranteed they were "totarry da reow deow! you want sum deebeedee's too?*
In closing, don’t be tards people. Life’s too short to be a moron... END
Not pictured: his balls literally exploding underwater
Traversing all that way in the coldest water on the planet, only to be met by some
naked mans shrivled nutsack staring you in the face...
