Heh, 127 celsius is mighty hot even without the water splashes every 30 seconds. My sweet spot is around 75-80 where i can just relax and soak in the heat for about 45 minutes by myself.
Finnish BJJ championships were a week ago and I had to drop a some weight to make -88,3kg series. Low carb food + 1,5-2,5h sauna with cooling breaks for a couple of nights did the trick. Made weight easily.
But yeah. Those guys are pretty much insane. Fun fact: they can be found at every swimming pools in Finland bullying other sauna goers out by just constantly tossing more water to the stove. In fact in larger swimming there typically is a second sauna reserved just for them.Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

I used to play a game where I would take a beer from a case into the sauna, drink it before it got warm, jump into the pool, jump out, grab a beer, repeated until I could barely stand from dehydration and subsequently almost drown in the pool. I called it Getting Really Drunk Really Quick And Almost Drowning.

Originality not on your list of things to do today, Lindz?

Keep up the hard work mate. Maybe you can get the Darwin award after all (That's CHarles Darwin not Darwin Northern Territory).

A tad better in the originality stakes. 6/10. But I'll give you a gold star anyway.

I'll buy the beer, just promise you drink it all in your beer sauna game. You want four ex or black swan?

Who drinks that swill? ****, I don't even think I've seen Black Swan in at least a decade. Are they still exporting that kangaroo urine?
Also, although I have posted about it on here before you might not be aware, I don't drink anymore. The phrase "used to" indicates something that happened in the past.
But thanks for the offer.

Man uber hot sauna followed by jumping into a cold ass lake. Great feeling. I was in a state of shock after last weekends. Loved it.
