    how long?
    you should get the world record for cold resistance.

    any longer than a minute and you my friend would be frozen at -42f skin freezes in 1 minute.

    so -70f... that a little hard to beleive, unless you were just ran through it for 5 seconds.


    anyhow -20f for me. thats recent aswell.

    I'm more like a Lich than a snowman (I look like one somehow).
    And you can survive -120°C or so if you're not just standing inside a cloud of liquid oxygen or Freon or something, but... well, you cannot survive this man-killing cold very long :roll:

    Simply F is converted to C by this formula: C=(F-32)/1.8

    I think, for a -120c the time is immaterial whether a person will survive or not. It will instantly freeze the person that is exposed in this extreme coldness. Remember about 70% of human body is water & this percentage shares the responsibility in keeping our body temperature balance.

    Ok, you're right, -120°C is a bit cold, but there is a special therapy against rheumatism: 3 minutes at -110°C! Ok, the patients have to move arround if they don't want to freeze, but they just wear underwear. Staying longer inside this extreme coldness WILL kill you.

    you cant surrvive -70f -52c without gear, or moveing really fast o keep bodyheat up but even at those temps you will get frost bite, very risky to do, since it does not even drop to -70 much in alaska.


    put it this way High-flying airplanes fly through very cold air (temperature, it's -80 F!)
