Have you ever swam in ice cold water?

I have not swam in ice cold water. I refuse to do such a thing. I hate the cold water. I would rather swim in a heated pool or warm water of some sort. It can be dangerous swimming in ice cold waters. This can cause hypothermea. Hypothermea can lead to death of an individual. If someone paid me a million dollars to jump into ice cold water I would not do it. I would not risk my life to do a stupid stunt like that. I like my warm and hot water and that's all there is to it.

I really like to swim in an ice cold water before so what did was put lots of ice in the bath tub and I plunge in it. It was so cold but I love it. Haha. It was during the time when there's drought here so it was so hot. shadow41

I too have never swam in an ice cold water. I think that is dangerous. In our place there is this waterfall where the water is cold, but its not as cold as ice. I love to dip in it from time to time and I usually go there during summer to refresh. But I have never bath or swim in an ice cold w

Cold water yes, but ice cold no. besides we don't have winter in our country. The coldest we get is during Christmas season. Cheers!

I live on the gulf of mexico and i did go in the water a few times in march or may but no way not any longer it has to be at least 80+ and the heater has to be on in the pool, i think it has something to do with getting older the thinner my blood gets, it got down to the 50's here last weekend because of a cold front that came thru and the winter coats were out, and the socks were on.

I think that is not possible for me to swim in the ice cold water. Even if I won't swim in winter at all. And usually I still have warm water to have the shower in summer. I am afraid of the coldness. I love China
