Yes Folks the Russians know how to do these things properly!

Perhaps Messers Varadkar, Martin, Adams & Howlin

- could take a leaf out of Blessed Vladimir Putin's book

- and act like real men for once!:cool:

Russian President Vladimir Putin and many Orthodox pilgrims braved a bitter winter snap overnight to take the annual plunge into icy water in a traditional ritual marking the baptism of Jesus.

I was talking to a man about this and the benefits of cold showers earlier today in the sauna. There's a lot on youtube about it-bolsters immune system, improves circulation and lymph activity. I always go for a cold shower after a work out and feel great after it. No Aussie flu for me either this year!

Check out this guy, Mr Iceman they call him:

Exactly.

The Germans call the heat followed by cold kneipping?

In Germany they have plunge pools at the saunas.

Even overheated it hurts like crazy.

Always makes me think what's the point of these life jacket explanations on the plane? Could I survive falling overboard on a boat?

I'd say Putin is about as genuinely religious as Trump is.
But just like Trump, once there are millions of gullible marks like you to be had he will plunge pool with the weirdos, and Trump will do the laying of hands and on and on the circus will go.

60 years ago Russia was militantly atheist while the west was broadly Christian.

Now the west seems militantly atheist while Russia is Christian.

Here's a video of the President of the Russian Federation performing the Orthodox ritual yesterday, the Feast of Epipnay -

And here's one of RT's correspondents going through the same rigmarole; only she's a lot easier on the eye.

I know of no evidence that the west is "militantly atheist".

Has Emanuel Macron or Angela Merkel been advocating mass athiesm, and we have not heard about it?

A few years ago, there were a few books attacking the God idea on intellectual grounds, but that is hardly a mass movement. If anything, it is a good example of the freedom we have in the west, because such books could have been published openly in very few countries.
