National Geographic : Black ice is recently frozen and can be as thin as 2 inches! Do you think you want to try Nordic or wild ice skating? Make sure to try in groups if you do!

Sorabh Pant : Ice is paid actor.

Bad_Sir Baux : Thin ice ASMR.

Thunder Melo : Ok YouTube recommendations, a random one indeed but I did watch this.

James Edward Newell : I’ve fallen through ice when skating on ponds and lakes before. If you fall through, you should turn the way you were coming from, put your upper body on the ice, make your body parallel to the ice and kick your feet to propel yourself up onto the ice. If it keeps breaking, keep swimming and break the ice in front of you with your arms if you are close to land (Moving towards the land, obviously) If you cannot kick and propel yourself on to the ice, then rest your sleeves on the ice, and hopefully they will freeze onto the surface and you will be able to pull yourself up. But really make sure you turn around and try to get onto the ice you were on before you fell in, because you know it’s solid and it most likely won’t break. If there is a strong current, do not panic, and try to keep part of your body above water and hold on to the ice. It will be difficult to hoist yourself up so hopefully you have some friends around. If not, don’t panic and try to get yourself on top of the ice. Be patient. It’s very surprising when it happens, and it is VERY fast. You fall straight through. So decisions must be made quickly, no room for panic.

Ashyboi 99 : It’s weird seeing the ice start cracking as he skates

Felix Svan : I always used to go down to the lake in the winter and throw rocks across the lake while the ice was thin. The sound it made kept me there for hours! It was so truly fascinating and such memories!

Supreme Leader Smeagol : *chuckles* I'm in danger

Hildy van Hefeweizen : As an ice fisher, I can confirm that ice does make that sound! We fish on foot thick ice though...and I freak out a little every time I hear one of those pings!

suboT : #201978 Episode of Why is this in my Recommendation

linux750 : Those sounds aren't otherworldly. You can hear the same sounds from the metal tethering cables that keep tall bridges and radio towers erect. I suppose that those sounds are the vibrations the thin sheet of ice gives off when disturbed. That is similar to the sounds hear by metal cables give off when they move in the breeze of a high building or bridge.

SuicideBunny6 : That's the sound of fish fighting an underwater light saber battle

Jalmari Parikka : Its fun until the ice breaks...

Twoofer Derper : If you should go skating On the thin ice of modern life Dragging behind you the silent reproach Of a million tear-stained eyes Don't be surprised when a crack in the ice Appears under your feet You slip out of your depth and out of your mind With your fear flowing out behind you As you claw the thin ice

Alexis Roanoa : Pitch black anyone?

kin jung un : ice asmr

abde bout : That is one big alien war going on under there !
