Bathing suit + ice cold water is bad news!... or is it?

Post by Pocahontas » Tue Dec 08, 2009 10:44 am

Hey guys! It’s about that time of year again when hundreds gather on the icy January shores of Sandy Point, MD and dunk into the waters for a good cause!

Image

Every January, the Maryland State Troopers host Plungepolooza, a polar bear plunge where the ‘bears’ are sponsored by caring people such as yourselves. At the bell toll, my bathing-suited self will be charging into the water with my team mates, including our team’s head honcho Tina, and congealing out in the water, all to benefit the Special Olympics.

Image

Please sponsor either myself or my team mates! Any little bit helps! And if you can’t, please pass this on to someone who might, it would be greatly appreciated. Hope life is treating all of you well and I send all of my best wishes!

Image

For information on the event: http://plungemd.kintera.org/faf/r.asp?t=3&i=309300
For our team’s page: http://plungemd.kintera.org/octanegirls
For Tina's Page: http://plungemd.kintera.org/trinitysrt
For my page: http://plungemd.kintera.org/jcc


Thanks for your time! ^_^

It doesn't matter. 500 people get sick by their own choice to raise money for those who can't control if they are or not.

I get exactly what your saying. I used to do a polar bear swim here in Pittsburgh that benefited MS and never thought twice about it. The people I was trying to help suffered way more than I could ever imagine, even if I was jumping into 40 degree water.

Edit: As soon as I know what my check is gonna look like this month, I'll be throwing some money your way Janet.

Thanks so much guys!

Just in case the water doesn't benefit the system, there'll be EMTs on site to help those (who might unfortunately be me) survive any unforeseen development (which might unfortunately be hypothermia). :lol:

As many of you have said, anything one can do to help out is worth it! Plus, I hear it's a fun event and that nothing generates more bonding like freezing all your goodies with others for a greater good :P

Please make sure to show Tina some sponsorship love! If it comes down to splitting what you'd give me and giving each of us a donation, then we'll take it :)

Yup really lol. Now prolonged times in cold water and weather would result in those. But if it's a quick dip(or shower) it cleanses your system. Just make sure that the water and weather difference isn't a huge change or you could go into shock, not to worry anybody :lol:

Wow. I'd love to do something like that, but my penis is small enough as it is. I really don't need it to shrink any more!

Good luck ladies!

I would think a dip like that would be enough to make your penis go so far up inside of you that you would be lucky to see it 35 years from now.

Ok.

Here is the deal, First you both are awesome for doing this. Second, suck it up, there is not even ice on the water.

Now, I wanna make a deal with you ladies. I will throw some sponsorship money your way as I get a little bonus this paycheque with two catches.

Catch #1 - I too, will be doing a Polar bear dip. In February. In Canada. We have to break open enough ice to do so. SO I will have it WATYYYYYYYY worse :lol: So, I throw you few bucks, you two reciprocate for me.

Catch #2 - I want to see pics of both of y'all in your bathing suits soaking wet and looking hot in some fun poses at / after the event.

Deal? :lol:
