Seriously, most Minnesotans are sane
« on: January 01, 2008, 01:33:57 PM »

I have never, ever come up with a valid reason for jumping into a frozen lake.



http://www.startribune.com/local/12937196.html





Lake jump sets a world record


Call it a world record.

The Active Life and Running Club (ALARC) established a world record today for the most people to jump into a frozen lake at one event at its annual "On It & In It Lake Minnetonka Ice Plunge" at the Bay View Event Center in Excelsior. They officially recorded 689 people diving into the water this morning........

........Air temperature was about 6 degrees, and the water was right around freezing. Ice exceeding 7 inches in depth was removed recently to create the hole.

I jumped into the Irish Sea on Boxing Day 1985.  That's cold enough in the middle of August.

Got that out of my system and moved on with my life.

 Shocked

How long did it take your "boys" to drop back into position?  Grin

I'm not saying I would never do it, just that I haven't come across a good reason yet.

I think the "boys" would shrink into mini-tiny-nothing status for at least 48 hours. Grin Grin Grin

"Shrinkage" isn't nearly descriptive enough.

Soon to be your local trash man.


I don't play golf anymore.   Well, maybe I do sort of.  I quit keeping score, started drinkning beer and I started playing better.
