    Finland: undisputed master of extreme-temperature sports. They should combine this with the sauna endurance competition.

    How about if an actual polar bear guards the air hole? Would that be extreme enough?

    Diving fail #1, its not oxygen the support divers are carrying its compressed air. The media never gets this right, its almost always air, NOT oxygen. Science interlude: Even at serious depth its not oxygen, in fact the deeper you go the less oxygen there is in the mixed gas you carry, otherwise the partial pressure of the oxygen in the mix becomes toxic and causes CNS poisoning = convulsions and drowning.

      I saw the link on my Twitter feed and also thought it was actual polar bears. While still interesting, the actual video is not nearly as adorable.

    They play with an air hole? What are they? Toddlers?
    Why don’t they take the training wheels off this game?
