    so..ah...does your pee really freeze before it hits the ground in those temps?
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    Hey Otzi. You should do a similar post for June 21 so we can see why you are a little crazy at that time of year as well.

    Not willing to freeze my willy off for science, but hot water thrown in the air is pretty cool:

    Yes, 24 hour days also take their toll on a guy...

    Hey, you have a whole three hours and some to get your 15 minutes of sun each day - if you can do it without your nose falling off your face.

    Thanks for posting the video; it's pretty beautiful.

    At the same time, I have very fond memories of going out late one night, ~ -20F and no wind (most unusual), in my parka and mukluks, watching the aurora for about half an hour ... just dancing across the black sky.

    MY friends live in North Pole, AK. They don't even get to see the sun in the winter while sitting in offices all day. I will only visit in the summer. Too cold and dark in winter. I don't like anything below 75*F. You are a stronger person than me, Otzi.
    Starting weight: 168 lbs

    Goal weight: whatever makes me look strong and healthy!
