    Princess of whales: How a naked female scientist tries to tame belugas in the freezing Arctic

    By Daily Mail Reporter

    Last updated at 10:00 AM on 16th June 2011

    Braving sub-zero temperatures, she has thrown caution and her clothes to the wind to tame two beluga whales in a unique and controversial experiment.

    Natalia Avseenko, 36, was persuaded to strip naked as marine experts believe belugas do not like to be touched by artificial materials such as diving suits. The skilled Russian diver took the plunge as the water temperature hit minus 1.5 degrees Centigrade.

    Belugas are famed for the way in which their faces are able to convey human-like expressions. Certainly Matrena and Nilma seemed to enjoy frolicking with Natalia. The taming of the whales happened in the Murmansk Oblast region in the far north-west of Russia at the shore of the White Sea near the Arctic Circle branch of the Utrish Dophinarium.

    An area of the sea is enclosed to stop whales and dolphins getting out and instructors tame the mammals before they are transported to dolphinariums around the world a practice many animal conservationists consider cruel.

    Belugas have a small hump on their heads used for echo-location and it was thought that there would be more chance of striking up a rapport with them without clothes as a barrier.

    The average human could die if left in sub-zero temperature sea water for just five minutes.

    However, Natalia is a yoga expert and used meditation techniques to hold her breath and stay under water for an incredible ten minutes and 40 seconds.
    Very artistic but potentially NSFW pix at the link. Story demonstrates the never-ending lengths will men will go to to convince their female coworkers to strip as well as the willingness many women show to create to 'brain-freeze' in male colleagues.

    *shrugs* If you want to get naked and swim with whales, just do it. Don't come up with stupid excuses for it.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I could hit 3 minutes back in the day, and that was pretty good, most people thought. But 10 minutes? I have no idea how she does that

    No doubt. Can you imagine the shrinkage involved with water that dips below freezing?

    We're talking anemic peanut here. :eek:

    Of all the lines I have used to try to get a woman out of her panties, "For the whales," was never one of them.

    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.
