That's cold.

Meteorologist Eric Holthaus demonstrates what happens when you toss a pot of boiling water into the sky when it is -21°F with a wind chill of -51°F. Video shot Jan 6, 2014 in Viroqua, WI.

I have a friend who lives in Iowa and even as I type this it is -9 degrees there. Over the weekend it was -16. I keep telling her to do water experiments but she basically said that if you step outside you pretty much die. I want to try peeing...

Don't do it! The stream will freeze inside you.

The sound of his footsteps on the snow is one of the worst sounds ever. I don't miss it.

(Had to turn on the AC in my car today when I left work at lunchtime. Nyah!)
