I wish i didnt know how they know what happens to the "average person" after 25mins :(
If 7 is torture i cant image 25.

How is this possible? I lived in the far north and can say from firsthand experience that it doesnt take long to get frost bite running on ice barefoot.

I wont explain the situation, but I had to run barefoot (well with socks but that was nothing) in about -35C. After about 2 minutes they were frozen solid. I dont mean cold, I mean frozen SOLID hard. This video says after 10 minutes the average person wouldnt be able to stand the pain? After 10 minutes the average person would have already collapsed for 5.

#4 He's trying to prove that with the power of the mind very much could become possible instead of staying impossible. He lives like that. And he say's he feels cleansed when he does things with extreme cold. I could imagine that.

If he could really 'tune' his termostat he would have been able run a marathon in the hottest desert on Earth too..
I think he's just born with some mutation enabling him to not feel the cold..

I'm sure I've seen him in a porn video. It was called "The Iceman Cometh"

Hate to say it, but if he does climb a mountain the way he wants, even with all his skills and training, it could be the end of "Iceman"... you can only go so far. He still is human.

He seems to be able to actively control biochemical mechanisms that cause energy to be released, meaning exothermic reactions. its amazing as biochemstry, meaning enzymes and proteins, is regulating itself using allosteric inhibition, feedback inhibition or gene expression control and the like.

since we are "warmblooded" or more precise homothermic our body can actively regulate body heat at the expense of energy such as atp. but only limited as the vid stated.

he appears to be capable to disable those biochemical switches and produce excess energy resulting in heat... incredible :O
