It's cold!!!

While walking Jack yesterday morning I was a little surprised by just how cold it was. Being that it's winter here in southern Ontario it should be cold, but this felt like the coldest day so far this year. It turned out it was very close. The temp at 8 am yesterday morning was -22, but when you factor in windchill it felt like -31. For the record, I was the only one complaining about it...even Jack was giving me this "don't be such a bitch look".

This got me wondering about what the coldest recorded temperature would be.


What is the coldest place in the world?


Far and away, the coldest temperature ever measured on Earth was -129 Fahrenheit (-89 Celsius) at Vostok , Antarctica, on July 21, 1983.


Who's the poor bastard that got that assignment?
