Cold Scream

I woke to find we have a wind chill of minus forty. And so the subject for today's poll becomes rather obvious.

Poll #1123333 Chill Out

The nicest thing about -40-degree wind chills is that

you get to spend endless time telling all your Internet friends just how cold it is.
3(25.0%)
it's a great way to get rid of that extra nose you've been meaning to have amputated.
0(0.0%)
you're keeping the gas company from going bankrupt with all the extra money you're paying them.
3(25.0%)
it keeps the global warming people quiet for a minute or two.
0(0.0%)
it's just cool that -40 Celcius and -40 Fahrenheit mean exactly the same thing.
6(50.0%)

When an American complains that 25 degrees Fahrenheit is excessively frigid, you:

agree wholeheartedly.
3(27.3%)
smile knowingly.
3(27.3%)
have no idea what they mean, since you're in the 21st century and use Celcius.
1(9.1%)
laugh maniacally.
2(18.2%)
look around, and if you see your shadow you crawl back into your hole for six weeks.
2(18.2%)

What really makes things cold for you is the:

wind.
6(50.0%)
humidity.
0(0.0%)
precipitation
0(0.0%)
all of the above.
5(41.7%)
look you get from your significant other when she/he discovers you forgot to plug the car in last night. (block heaters)
1(8.3%)

Aren't you glad it's Friday?

No, you're weird.
0(0.0%)
You bet, pour on the Coke and turn on the Corner Gas episodes.
1(8.3%)
You're the lucky one, Bruce, you get to talk with Caroline on the weekend.
3(25.0%)
Fridays are just plain wonderful!
7(58.3%)
You're not doing this poll on a Friday, so no, you're not glad it's Friday because that would make you a politician, I mean, a liar.
