Who Knew?

I always thought that winter cold water swimming was something done by drunks, daredevils, cranks, and eccentrics.  But I was wrong.  In Europe at least, there are lots of regular people who swim outdoors all winter.  Kahuna found this article on the New York Times website:

I remain unconvinced.  My preferred method of dealing with the "dreariness" of winter is to hit the ski trail.  Actually if I had to pick one word to describe this winter it wouldn't be "dreary" it would be "awesome".  Best in years.  We're all a little crazy in our own way, right?
