3/23/2005: Ice dunking record



Russian Karim Diab stood still in the icy Moscow River for one hour,
breaking the previous record of 45 minutes. Scrawled on his forehead
is the Russian word for "peace".

ah, the power of Vodka.



Nothing But Net  Wednesday Mar 23 04:22 PM

What is the Russian word for "shrinkage"?



lookout123  Wednesday Mar 23 04:24 PM

he is actually looking down with stunned realization that you actually can freeze your balls off.

And people say Darwin was wrong...


mrnoodle  Wednesday Mar 23 04:45 PM

I, for one, stand corrected.



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Mar 23 04:59 PM

I hope he didn't freeze them off. He'd need them to tell people he holds that record.
"You did what?" "Why?" "Are you nuts?"



lumberjim  Wednesday Mar 23 05:14 PM

it's a trick. two days before, he began drinking mass quantities of tea. when he got in the water, the hole in the ice was only big enough to squeeze through. He immediately began to pee at that point, thereby warming the water to a tolerable level and melting more of the ice around him. easy, but icky.



Troubleshooter  Wednesday Mar 23 05:19 PM

Ok, this I gotta see, so to speak.

Where's the cite?



LabRat  Wednesday Mar 23 05:24 PM

i assume the little ripples are from him shivering...looking forward to more info.

Must be a typo. Shouldn't it read pees?


Elspode  Wednesday Mar 23 05:48 PM

He *does* sort of have that look you get when you've just finished a really long, satisfying urination.

No, no! When he started, he was standing on top of a solid bolck of ice!


lookout123  Wednesday Mar 23 06:57 PM

is this the same guy who drank all the liquor so he could pee on the snow, allowing himself to escape from his car?



The Mad Hatter  Wednesday Mar 23 08:05 PM

I like how the water around him has formed a thin layer of ice on top (except for the area immediately near his body, where he's been moving it ever so slightly).



Wombat  Wednesday Mar 23 08:19 PM

Silly guy should have pulled his beanie down further. He'll get cold ears.

I could have sworn that was the Russian word for "world".

Maybe the fall of Communism wasn't such a good idea for them after all. Before they had all this "freedom" they didn't do this shit, did they? Or is this a remnant of "entertainment from the old regime?" This bit of the river doesn't run near Lubyanka, does it?


magilla  Thursday Mar 24 09:16 AM

I want to know about the shape of the hole in the ice. Is that the ice's way of flipping off the world?

Why? Are you drinking water from there?

Got to be a nice cold Gulag somewhere in Siberia for this guy...


jaguar  Tuesday Apr 5 06:33 PM

wouldn't you want to be splashing around and stuff?



Clodfobble  Tuesday Apr 5 09:58 PM

Haven't you ever been in really cold water jag? The more you move, the more fresh (i.e. cold) water you have touching your skin. If you sit very, very still, you warm up the water around you ever-so-slightly.

мир means both "world" and "peace".

Just because someone asked: морщиться means "shrinking".

Entering cyrillic characters in the forum works just fine as you can see. The Unicode entities needed are described here.

Pssst ... I knew. I was making a moderately obscure joke. Thanks for being the one to get it!

Thanks for the info on entering Cyrillic characters!
