Something a little less in-your-face this week. I can do subtle ;-)
This is Russian marine scientist Natalia Avseenko, swimming with Beluga whales in the White Sea. Apparently she can cope with Arctic waters for up to 10 minutes.
Note that her fellow-scientists are not nearly as hardy...
What ... you want a picture of an underdressed man doing something amazing in lethally cold condtions too?
This is Aussie Michael Kemeter, wirewalking 150ft between two peaks in the Alps. He went topless "to reduce wind-resistence," but kept his trousers on - honestly, what a wimp!
