Hi, I’m Stig Severinsen.
I have been called the Ice Guru by Men’s Journal. Some of my other names are the Man Who Doesn’t Breathe and the Human Dolphin.
With four Freediving World Championship titles and multiple Guinness Book World Records to my name, people often fail to describe my chilly feats in words.
Some of my arctic accomplishments…
Became the first person to hold his breath for longer than 20 minutes
Be the first to swim 250 feet under the ice on a single breath of air
Be the only one crazy enough to dive into a freezing lake, wearing only Speedos
And this year, I can add a new Guinness World Record to the list. But this time it is not just about me breaking record. I have set out to break this world record at the start of 2020 to bring the focus on the importance of protecting the oceans from overfishing, plastics and other unnatural destruction. I also want to show that in these trying times, you should never give up chasing your dreams. If I can set a physical world record at the ripe age of 47, I hope it inspires you to pursue what you want and do best.

Nba legend Malone speaks
Karl Malone calls out Zion Williamson: "Zion needs to be averaging like 40 minutes per game... you're a 21 year old kid... your a** shouldn't be getting tired." Sheesh.

When I realized that it was some big joke, I told her it wasn't cool. I told her how hurt I was, and how terrible people feel after jokes like that. She started ignoring me. Said she didn't want to talk to me anymore, so I wholeheartedly shared that sentiment. I stopped talking to her too.
I thought that was it. Shitty, hurtful joke done. Time to stifle some tears and get on with my life. Wrong.
Ten minutes after the joke, we get a knock on the door. I still live with my family, and my grandparents live with us too. I'm 19. The police were outside. Asked if I wanted to talk to them. I was confused honestly. My life is as mundane as ever. I wake up, work, go home, sleep. Rinse and repeat.
This girl had called the police, and told them I had threatened to kill myself if she didn't go out with me. Rather than accept the fact that I caught her on her little joke, she lied to the police in the hopes I'd get in trouble. I wanted to scream, and cry, and break something. I was filled with so much overwhelming sadness and anger.
The good news is we know the officers that came to our door. My dad is a cop, so they all know our family pretty well. They clued in to what was going on pretty quickly, but despite the fast understanding, I was fucking humiliated. My whole family was there listening in thinking I'd said some horrific shit to some girl because I didn't get my way. They know the truth now, but for a few seconds, I felt like they thought I was some animal.
This has warped my sense of self worth. To me, I'm now the guy you lie to the police about to get me in trouble. I'm the joke. It's destroyed my trust in people. I no longer want to talk to people. When I work, I keep my head down. I don't want to get close to people because I don't want the same bullshit to happen again.
To sum it all up, I'm hurt. This has been the most emotional pain I've ever experienced, and my best friend died a day before my birthday. I didn't think it would get worse than that, but somehow it does. I no longer believe in relationships. All they do is hurt, and the short bursts of love you feel aren't worth the pain.
EDIT: Gotta clear up some things being bought up in the comments.
First, I did tell the police. Before they left, I told them. I don't know what happened after. I blocked her and tried to forget about it. Sorry, I'm uncomfortable having anything to do with her
Second, you wonder why guys find it hard to talk about things that ha... keep reading on reddit ➡
The Philadelphia 76ers won a big game on ESPN against the Boston Celtics, and Joel Embiid's fingertips were all over it. He scored 42 points on 61% shooting from the floor, made 81% of his free throws and had a double double. He only had 1 turnover. The big man continues to play at an MVP level.
