Concerning the Vesna Vulović case, note that she was not in free fall, she was inside the plane when it crashed after falling the distance.

comment How to overcome mental hurdles of adventure trauma?
It sounds like you're asking how to deal with the immediate situation where you're shaken by an accident, rather than long term fears. If so, the comparison to PTSD is completely wrong and the word trauma itself is misleading. The question would be easier to answer if it were more focussed.

comment Is it true that, in cold conditions, you will freeze faster wearing wet clothes than not wearing any?
@РСТȢѸФХѾЦЧШЩЪЫЬѢѤЮѦѪѨѬѠѺѮѰѲѴ: that has nothing to do with insulation though. And I am extremely skeptical of claims that the evaporation has a stronger effect than the insulation provided even by wet clother, for anything but the most flimsy of garments.

@РСТȢѸФХѾЦЧШЩЪЫЬѢѤЮѦѪѨѬѠѺѮѰѲѴ: the wet clothing is still surrounded by air - your argument does not, heh, hold water
