The other day my friend Brian sent me a text: “Do you know anything about Wim Hof?”
I wrote, “I’ve heard that it will destroy your hard drive. Do not click on it!”
He texted me back with an emoticon of a yellow face that seemed to be laughing or choking and either looking exasperated or pretending to understand a joke but not actually getting it. (I struggle with emoticons.)
Whatever it meant, I gathered that Wim Hof was not a computer virus.
