Bravery or shear stupidity?

The question is rhetorical. The publisher titled the video "crazy people" then states in the infobox:

"Vintage footage of an icebreaking boat in Finland with some very brave people coming out to see it."

Nevertheless, it's very cool footage (no pun intended).

Under a minute.

I think a combination of brave with a little stupid mixed in. Most stayed a fair distance from the icebreaker but some had to get real close. The thickness of the ice was more stable and consistent than it would be today giving them a sense of security. This was almost a hundred years ago long before climate change.

You ever heard or seen the running of the bulls all over Spain during the bullfight season? Like anything else we are not familiar... there is a science to it... an inside knowledge we don't grasp. To a foreigner is suicide but to a local that been doing it since age 12, it is like riding a bike. They know what they are doing... they had seen it before.
