POLICE weren't sure whether to believe the reports of a naked woman running through the snow — but that's exactly what they found when they investigated. Despite the freezing cold weather, the unidentified woman — believed to be a year-old student — was running through a park in Kirov, Russia, without a thing on her. A passer-by had apparently asked her what she was doing but the woman ran off instead of answering. Despite pleas to come down, the woman refused and police thought they might be dealing with a suicide attempt. However, police managed to grab hold of her when they climbed the roof and offered her a blanket. They added that the reason for the naked streak remained unclear and investigations were continuing.

The thrill-seeker says she's been carrying out the bizarre ritual for nine years - often alongside her husband - because she believes the freezing temperatures keep her looking young and healthy.
I knew that anything was possible, but I never would have predicted the lesson I was about to receive. On the second day of my visit, I was sitting on the stone hearth of a warm fireplace, connecting with some very fascinating men and women, when I heard my name called from the other room. He remained in the doorway as the freezing winter air rushed into the cozy house. This will be good for you. I reluctantly did as he said and out we walked, bare feet disappearing into about 12 inches of frozen powder with each step. My survival instincts kicked into high gear as the skin on my feet, ankles, and calves became engulfed with frozen white. He saw what I was doing and began to smile a big child-like grin. Raised with so much fear.
It's been really helpful already. God works by small and simple means to bring about His great and eternal purposes. I don't think anyone here intended a dismissal of the girl as a human being by stating such. And that fairly constant theme has some deep implications your girlfriend will have to face.
