How many of you did the plunge? 12?
More, though not sure exactly.

Feel for you guys. Tomorrow will hopefully be a better day.

Why is everyone so seasick on the way back as opposed to the way there? Less waves then?

Went into complete shock. Couldn't move a limb. One of the dumber things I've done in my days.

Probably should have gone feet first rather than head first, but I'd never have gone under if I slowly went in.
How did you get out?
You were rescued or came to your senses to do it by yourself?

Managed to pull it together and grab a hand back onto land.
Not my cup of tea. The initial shock to the system is awful.

I did indeed. Should be used for enhanced interrogation methods.

So I guess this was worse than the ice bucket challenge?

Did you nominate 3 people to do the plunge?

Head first as in a dive? That's crazy

Can't even imagine the mesirus nefesh jews had for mikvah in Russia and Europe during the winter months probably less than 100 years ago.... Stories are told that in certain cities they needed to break the ice to toivel!

When breaking through the ice, the water isn't as cold (at least on a lake).

Freshwater freezes at a higher temperature than salt water.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
