ah, the power of Vodka.

What is the Russian word for "shrinkage"?

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

I, for one, stand corrected.

I hope he didn't freeze them off. He'd need them to tell people he holds that record.
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.
LabRat Wednesday Mar 23 05:24 PM
i assume the little ripples are from him shivering...looking forward to more info.

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

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).

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?

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

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

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.

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.
