"The official temperature in Hell Tuesday was -4."

Awesome.

Still nope. Sorry Drew.

-4F is about -20C.

That's not really any kind of news story, especially in Michigan...although I'm sure that the media outlets were just salivating at the thought of a "Hell Froze Over" report.

It was so cold that eggs even froze in the nests of backyard chicken coops, and a tow truck called in to pull out a stuck car became stuck itself.

It doesn't have to be cold for tow trucks to get stuck.

I enjoyed it when others sponsored me.

Why buy the frozen cow when you can get the frozen milk for free?

In related news, it was 4 degrees above zero yesterday in Blue Ball, Pennsylvania.

I was a TFer for a year. Never saw much point in it. Sorry, Drew.

I was sponsored before. That was awesome!

There was another story where the mayor of Hell says a lot of things were going to get accomplished since people were waiting for hell to freeze over.

Having lived in Michigan for a short time, welcome to every winter's fluff journalism piece since ... <looks up when Hell became Hell>  ... 1841.

\\ They do sponsor a 5 mile race on Halloween where you get a T-shirt that says, "I ran through Hell"

Ahhh, local news.   We have about 4 degrees above zero to the effort put into any real kind of journalism.  Imagination is restricted to any cliche that is seasonal.  Shampoo, rinse and repeat.  Next car ad please.

I'm going to buy a lottery ticket and ask out that hottie at the mall. Everyone kept telling me I had a snowballs chance in hell in getting a date. According to that video, today is the day she succumbs to my charms. And her daddy issues.

I'll still be deep in the cold cold ground before I recognise Missourah.

My grandfather lived in Spring Lake Michigan for about 15 years before he passed away this past fall....every year that he lived there, he would take a drive to Hell and buy me the latest version of "I've been to Hell and back" t-shirt....I always thought they were cheesy and silly (and they are) but they also make me laugh and think about him every time I see them in the closet.

/CSB or not, I don't care, just wanted to share...

So the chance of getting "snow balled" is pretty good.
 
2014-01-09 10:20:55 AM  
Remember many years ago a story about a Scandinavian fellow who visited Michigan and sent a postcard home that said "Passed through Hell today. Surprised to find that most people here are Lutherans."
 
2014-01-09 10:22:28 AM  
I live SW of Hell. It was -18 when I got up Tuesday.  It was, in fact, colder than Hell at my house. The biggest problem was every half-wit news agency sending crews out to report it was cold in Hell. They took up the whole parking lot at the only open business, the bar. People who live around here were not happy. They take their drinking seriously in Hell.
 
2014-01-09 10:22:37 AM  
When did they rename Detroit?

If this was had by you would you do the proceedings to the TFD area?

Old joke is Old. It freezes ever year There. (I live about 30 minutes away from Hell)

No thanks. :) I've been sponsored before but never found much for me in TFD. Now, I'd gladly pay for it myself if it meant going ad free.

My girlfriend ran a race through that town a few years ago.

\ That's the joke.
 
2014-01-09 10:36:46 AM  
pfft, it's Michigan, doesn't that state freeze over on a cloudy day?  If Dante was right Hell, Michigan would be where Satans frosty testicles are kept.

Now if Hell in West Bay, Cayman Islands freezes over, that's something

yeah on this side of the state the local news found a new way to milk the "story" by running a commercial yesterday about how crucial they were to people living through the (thunder-echo voice) Storm Of The Decade!!!.  To hear them tell it they were the thin red line that kept people from insta-freezing in their own homes or turning to cannibalism.  We truly owe them a debt that can never be repaid.

I have no idea why I do that.

Was gifted TF for several months.  Saw no benefit to me.  Will not do it ever.

Soon, I'll either go back to TFD or just stop coming to Fark all together.  Most of the posters here on the free tabs are uninteresting, unoriginal, and pretty f*cking stupid, generally speaking.
 
2014-01-09 11:33:36 AM  
Wait, wait...

A town in Michigan is really cold in January?

How has no one ever made this observation before!?

Every.
Year.

It gets tedious. We get it. Ha ha. We have a town named Hell in Michigan, and we get winter in Michigan. So Hell freezes over. Every damn year. And we get a stupid haha news story about it every damn year.

I think it's much funnier when the south gets a little snow or ice, and all the big-talking southerners are suddenly sliding around on the road like idiots and closing schools when an inch of snow accumulates on the ground. THAT is far funnier than Hell freezing over.

Yea, hyperbole is usually pretty funny.

Too lazy to look it up, but it was likely colder in Paradise.
 
2014-01-09 01:00:20 PM  
As a Canadian, every time I see a U.S. news story about "zero degree" weather I immediately assume people are over-reacting until I realize it's in Fahrenheit.
 
2014-01-09 01:01:18 PM  
Fahrenheit is such a stupid arbitrary scale. Hell MI froze over way back at zero Celsius thankyouverymuch. Zero Fahrenheit is meaningless.
 
2014-01-09 01:16:21 PM  
In Nordic mythology, hell (called "Hel") is actually cold and frozen.

I suppose for a Viking in the middle of winter, a hot hell would sound like a pretty nice place.

They do this every year.

Every winter, there's a "Look! It's below freezing in Hell! HAHAHAHAHA Isn't that funny???? HOW FUNNY IS THAT? pay attention to me please"

It was a court order, anything else would have considered false advertising.

Actually, Detroit wishes it was as nice as Hell.  I hear Hell is even nicer than Flint, so I may have to visit and see what I am missing.
