A 54-year-old man from Northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province has broken the Guinness World Record of spending more time buried in the snow than anyone else in the world.

Jin Songhao was buried in the snow for a total of 46 minutes and ten seconds, wearing only a pair of swimming trucks. News reports declared 36-degree temperatures on this day and yet Jin showed no indications of shivering or discomfort during the entire time he was submerged in the snow.

Songhao has had some practice both with this sort of endeavor and breaking world records. Earlier this year, he broke another one in which he sat on a pile of ice cubes for two hours.

It would appear that the Iceman really does cometh.
