Curious Heat [radiation] Related Tidbit

"When an individual's core body temperature reaches 85 degrees, during the process of freezing to death, victims often rip off their clothes in a strange, anguished paroxysm. This phenomenon, known as paradoxical undressing, is common enough that urban hypothermia victims are sometimes initially diagnosed as victims of sexual assault. Though researchers are uncertain of the cause, the most logical explanation is that shortly before loss of consciousness, the constricted blood vessels near the body's surface suddenly dilate and produce a sensation of extreme heat against the skin."
