I like saunas. Once the dry heat gets hot enough to start you sweating copiously, the pores of your skin really get cleaned out. After a long sauna, you really feel relaxed and ready for a short nap. I've often thought if I was rich, I'd have a sauna at my house.

I read where the Finns were having some kind of World Championship of Sauna, the object being to see who could tolerate the hottest temperature for the longest time.

They were up to 100C which is 212F. That's a couple degrees above boiling. Crazy. A Russian contestant died from it.

I don't like saunas that much.

We have one at the gym I'm a member of and I rarely use it. I'm going in there tonight though after I work out. I have a lot of weight to lose!
