Meanwhile in Russia: Man Enjoys His Winter of Discontent, Eats Frozen Foods In Ice-Cold Water For Fun

We all have different ways of coping with winter. Some of us get hygge with it and just wait it out indoors. Others embrace cold-weather sports like skiing and snowboarding. And then there’s 41-year-old Sergey Trifonov. His approach to winter is so extreme, it gives us goosebumps.

The wild-eyed, Samara, Russia resident has made a name for himself by performing stunts that’d make your balls shrink just by association. He likes to immerse himself in bone-chilling water (-7.6 to 10 degrees Farenheight) and munch on frozen foods. One of his specialties is a “frozen sandwich,” made with ketchup and mayo. He also chows down on ice cream cones and just plain ol’ hunks of ice. He doesn’t just eat in his chilly oasis, either. He shaves, too.

Whatever floats your (frozen) boat, friend. Just don’t ask us to join you anytime soon. If you need us, we’ll be in the sauna until summer comes.
