By the way, this was a moment that showed me how much digital photography had changed the world: just a few years back, people would look at a nice Photoshop work and comment "it looks like a real picture!"; when people see this photo above, they usually comment "it looks like a real Photoshop work!". Oh well. For the record: no Photoshop work on this one.
(again, no Photoshop on this pic) and how I looked when my feet, hands and head realized that scientific fact of 31F:
For sure, with the little blood in my brain that was still liquid, I could ponder "am I stupid?" The truth is, the water IS cold. But look at it this way: no sharks; killer whales really like plankton better; and polar bears would shy away from a thin person like me. Besides - I got my chance to convince some people I must be crazy!
