Wim Hof first caught the attention of scientists when the proved he was able to stay submerged in ice for one hour and 53 minutes without his core body temperature changing. Since then, he's climbed Mount Everest in his shorts, resisted altitude sickness, completed a marathon in the Namibian Desert with no water, and proven - under a laboratory setting - that he's able to influence his autonomic nervous system and immune system at will. Almost everything Wim has done was previously thought to be impossible, but he's not a freak of nature, he's a master of meditation. To demonstrate that any human can learn his methods, Wim offered to teach VICE hosts Matt Shea and Daisy-May Hudson to climb a freezing cold mountain in their shorts without getting cold. When Matt and Daisy signed up for the training, they had no idea that the so-called Iceman was planning to lead them on a psychedelic journey across Europe that circled the chasm between science and spirituality.

This special examines the historic poppy plant and three of its deadliest derivatives: opium, morphine and heroin. In ancient times, the poppy was considered divine, often used in "magic." In the 19th and 20th centuries, however, its addicting and lethal narcotics caused unprecedented national outrage, social upheaval and transformation. Opium alone sparked two wars between Britain and China, resulting in Hong Kong becoming a British colony. Although used by the upper classes as patent medicines to inspire creativity, heroin became the bane of society when the working class began to use it. Therefore, in 1914, Federal law banned heroin and opium, and restricted morphine to medicinal use. Interestingly, illegality increased heroin's demand and cost. From Civil War veterans and service men in Vietnam, from Hollywood to Silicon Valley and Wall Street, "heroin chic" has continued to flourish as the underground drug.
