This is new to me. And I have to ask: Why do people do this stuff. It looks cold and dangerous! Don't they have homes with fireplaces where they could sit, stay warm, and enjoy a warm brew?

It is amazing what humans can do, at least some humans. Don't think I know anyone who could or would do this, but it is still interesting.
