Some Dumbass Gets Wet

On January 28 at the State Theatre, Iceman Wim Hof will immerse himself in a freezing cold tank of ice water for longer than 1 hour and 50 minutes in an attempt to break a record.

Still not interested? Well let’s put it in different terms. Some dude who calls himself the “Iceman” will stay in a tank of ice water for longer than anyone really cares. And you can pay to watch it. The event, which starts at 6:00 pm, will cost you $7.50. Hey, at least the State sells beer now.

If you are a person who is fascinated by the sound of this, make sure to hit up the event. You might even learn how to do it too. While Hof is immersed, Penn State student Justin Rosales will talk about his experience learning the ins and outs of metabolic control from the Iceman.

Iceman’s trying to break a record, but who really gives a shit about Guiness World Records? If he wants a real challenge, why doesn’t he try going out for the night in the sub-zero temperatures of Happy Valley? We deserve some medals, too.

Take a look at what this super-being can do with his body (not in a sexual way).
