I have gotten used to [swimming in] the cold water [in a river here in Alaska] —

	- Get in: Body says, "What the hell are you doing?  Get out!"
	- Stay in: Feels like needles stabbing into every pore.
	- Stay in:
		- Skin begins to feel like it's burning
		- Muscles feel heavy
		- Motor skills become like that of a four year old (when you still can't tie your shoes)
		- Body becomes numb and the water feels quite pleasant.
