Pfft.  That's nothing.  The place where I live is easily twice as cold, barren, inhospitable, and unpleasant as that place.  I laugh at these people.  HA HA!

HAHA! Luxury! Where I live there is no atmosphere so at night it is 2.7 degrees KELVIN!

Well then...

Maybe we should have the Winter Olympics there.

This seems like a repeat.  But I'm too busy and/or lazy to go find the thread.

As long as The Thing isn't there, I'm kosher.

When it gets that cold it must make it tough to throw the freezing red paint at all the fur wearers.

Oymyakon ironically means "unfrozen water." This is due to the thermal spring located nearby.
Originally the location was used by reindeer herders who would water their flock in the warm springs.


warm springs in a place called unfrozen water...
maybe that's a little too ironic.

Beat me to it.  There just might be something that would keep me warm under all the clothing.

One caption describes the guy putting his cows in a heated shed, and then calls them his "flock".  I think we've got a 4-H'er doing the commentary.

Russian women are so hot before they hit the age where they suddenly go babushka. I was glad that I never had any real secret information in the military. There were some Marines that were part of the guard at the Russian embassy and would up giving information to hot Russian chicks. I would have totally been in prison with them if I had been there.

I think I got frostbite just from looking at the photos.

You know, if I was born into a place like this.

I would use these things that are around now, called planes, trains and automobiles to leave.


What?  You've got nothing else to do but plan & save your money to make the trip...

I saw that 'flock' statement as well.
/What the flock??  Thought it was a herd.

Yes, essentially.  'Long drop' is UK/Oz slang for a pit toilet.

And in other news, there's an entire wikipedia page devoted to hanging TP over vs under:

Over is the correct orientation.  Under is saying, "Just kidding.  We didn't really want you to wipe your ass."

Also, it has been very cold in Minnesota this winter.

You got that last part right.

Why would anyone live in a place like that?

Meh. As I always say, I don't have to shovel cold. Although, it really does turn deciding when to fill up with gas into a major planning event. And forget about getting the car washed.

While it is only -30C currently in this part of Canada, I -do- know what it's like to try and function on a day, or several days in a row, when it's been -50C here with the windchill, it is not fun in the slightest. Even at -30C it's painful to wear your metal framed glasses. That lady in the photos with no scarf over her face is very hearty clearly, either that or her face has permanent nerve damage from the cold and she no longer cares.

Yeah, it hit -32C (without windchill) one night over the holidays when I was visiting my family near Montreal. During the 15 minute walk from the store to my sister's house, the cilantro I bought froze and turned black, and the room-temperature white wine got cold enough to drink. (I had long underwear, thermal pants, parka, and balaclava. I wasn't exactly comfortable, but managed. And yeah, the glasses came off.) Went for a quick cross-country ski at -24 and my water bottle froze. I grew up in cold, but those temperatures are unimaginable.

Yep, same pics as last year. A couple new ones thought so I'll give them that.
