I have heard the reports of cryoballs on here. Sounds like a good strategy.

So, on New Years day, 1/1/11, at 1:11, I eengaged in a cryo technique that i will see what the impact is in 3 weeks when I have my PSA tested.

My son in law and I went to the shores of Lake Erie, found a gap in the 10 inch thick ice, stripped down to our trunks, and immersed ourselves. I now know why they call it cryoballs. Things do get cold !

I know, I know, it's not real scientific, but I also was able to cross off an item on my Bucket List.

Happy New Year to everyone. I'll let you. Know how it worked. So far, the SE's are minimal. Willie will most likely reappear in a few days.

Goodlife

Best laugh I had all weekend, goodlife. You almost made me spit out my pomegranate juice all over the keyboard.

Happy New Year to you too. I think I'll try this technique -- just before my July PSA test.

some Polar Bear Plunges ( half naked men and women dunking into freezing water on january 1) raise money for charity and show what silly things men and women do for a good cause - or causes -

- lowering the testes temperature can increase sperm production ( ie. wearing boxers instead of briefs while trying to procreate) - don't know it's effect on actual testosterone levels ....

-maybe mr. willie will see its shadow on groundhog day?

-happy new year to one and all

David,

I actually posted it on Utube. As was mentioned, it kind of a thing up here in the north, but I was only kidding about the cryo thing.

It was on my bucket list, although i have fallen through the ice a boy, and walked home with my pants frozen stiff.

Might do it again

Sorry bout your keyboard Jazz. Hope things are well with you !

Bronson, where have you been hiding ?

Goodlife

Cajun Jeff: the LA equivilent is jumping naked into pits of quicksand in the swamps, and see who can hold their breath the longest.

Here in SC, due to the extreme low gene pool, they like to tie cinder blocks to their ankles and jump in the lake, and see who can hold out the longest. The winner's surviving spouse gets a small fake brass plastic trophy.

There have been no known cases of prostate cancer in polar bears so you may be on to something!
