    Officers from a Russian submarine swam in the freezing Arctic waters.

    Seemingly, Russian submarine officers are impervious to the cold. In a video posted recently on YouTube they plunged into the Arctic waters off the deck of their sub surrounded by pieces of ice. It is hard to say what crazy idea they had to swim. It may be a tradition, a navy ritual or just for fun.
