War Journal Entry #33: The things I've learned from being in put in the cold.
I should've kept track of how cold it was, but my mind was kinda locked on 'dearest fucking god, it's cold. Get it done, get frozen ass into warm place.' Just caught how cold it was once in a while. :P

But anyway, how damned cold it was:

Concrete can get freezer burn.

A GBA: SP will still work in the most extremest of colds, but Army equipment stopped working about a couple days before hand.

Any, and I mean ANY moisture on your shoes/boots/whatever will freeze instantly to a floor.

It is true: Wind chill makes a difference. But at certain temps, you ain't thinking about that.

10w30 become jello. Black jello, albiet, but still jello.

Forget metal. Don't stick your tounge to ANYTHING.

I, however, did catch how cold it was when I left the chamber today: 30 below. (So anyone who bitches about how cold it is (Incuding myself), I have one thing to say, and don't take it the wrong way, but STFU.)

Celsius or Farenheit?

Y'know, I didn't catch it. All I saw was the -30 on the sheet the data collectors kept to track the temp. It was when I was leaving, so I was more preoccupied with getting the hell out of there and being warm. :P

Kelvin. It was so cold the laws of physics broke.

Gotta love that Japanese technology, eh?

1) Horray for the gameboy. Not so horray for US technology.

2) How many things did you stick your tongue to to test the experience?

... Let's just say don't take stupid bets while in the world's second largest cold weather chamber that's working it's coils off. :P

... And if something has freezer burn, then your tongue can stick to it. :P

Only you could freeze your ass off in bleeping Florida.

What? Did you expect the government to actually put a cold weather someplace reasonable, like Alaska? :P

Where you could find out all of this shit by, say, stepping outside? Perish the thought! :-P

Nice to know that I'll still have Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow once the Icey Apocalypse hits. XD~
