Just how cold did it get during last week's polar vortex?

If you answered "Cold enough to freeze an egg," then you are correct.


The YouTube user behind the channel Minnesota Cold––which is about exactly what it sounds like––decided to show his audience what happens when you crack an egg in temperatures colder than a witch's tit.

"It is -27 degrees Fahrenheit today, and I'm going to show you what happens with eggs at that temperature," he says before doing just that.

According to the National Weather Service Twin Cities Twitter account, temperatures of 30 degrees below zero are "not very" common (parts of Minnesota fell to between 50 and 65 degrees below zero last Tuesday).

Better poor Humpty than us, right?

In the age of the internet, sometimes it can be very cool to hate on things just because other people do. Bandwagons can be fun, right? But honestly, not all of the things hated on actually deserve it. Save your hate for things that actually call for it.
