I like the trick where you throw water up into the air and it comes down snow. Very Mr. Science.

Isn't that the joke that got Bobcat Goldthwaite banned from Hollywood Squares?

Nah, he got kicked off Hollywood Squares for calling one of the contestants a "f**king jackass."

Not a whole helluva lot to do in Canada, is there?

The bit I like was the cup of water that mostly comes back down as snow.  That's frikkin cold.

Anywhere it's colder than -15 or so, you can do that.

Did that this morning here in Montana. It was -32 when I did this.

I always wonder how phones and ipads and other touchscreen devices handle the brutal cold. My guess is not very well. Semi-frozen liquid crystal tracers and lag everywhere.

The lithium-ion reaction in the battery will stop somewhere between 32F and -4F, so I doubt the LCD screen's much of an issue.

I don't get it.  I want to say I'm skeptical, but that throwing-up-hot-water trick looks real.

I've experienced 25 below.  And they were 24 degrees colder.  I've gone out when it's 25 below, in a heavy winter parka, with hood, and hat under that, and thick gloves, and it feels like a giant fist has punched me in the solar plexus.  The very first breath of air that cold is violent assault.  And exposed skin?  You take your gloves off and within 10 seconds your hands are completely numb.  And here are these yahoos, with no coats, no gloves, and the woman with no hat, and it's 24 degrees colder, and they're out in this for two solid minutes.  I would have literally died by then.

I don't get it.

Exposed skin is a problem even at zero. At -49 it is probably extremely dangerous and worse than painful. I do not believe this video.

Actually, both got him in trouble according to an interview I listened to.  He said the 'Bubbles' comment got him in hot water and the 'jackass' is what got him kicked off.  He launched on the guy because Bobcat was the square needed to win (or block, whatever) and the guy didn't pick him.

No.  That's the sad part.  The contestant deserved it.

Your body will build up a certain level of tolerance if you're used to the cold. You don't become immune to it but if you do stuff outdoors you have to deal with it.

/-37c with wind yesterday
/outside for hour trying to fix a snowblower

If that was actually true, my face would have fallen off from frostbite a long time ago.

You've clearly never experienced these temperatures.

Worst I've been in was about -6F, and it was weird, but not that bad, really. And at the time I was hanging out outside with guys in T-shirts who were smoking. (this was January 21, 2011 in Milwaukee at a gaming convention). That was the high around noon.

Of course, I imagine that the effects tend to get exponentially worse at the temperature continues to decrease.

Do you remember blowing bubbles?

He called last night asking about you.

It's 12 above zero here right now but feels like it's about 50 after the weekend of -30. Your sense of what's cold re-calibrates pretty quickly.
