Minnesota Cold/YouTube

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.

You know how it can get so hot in Arizona that you can fry an egg on the sidewalk?

Now imagine that in reverse. It's something to behold:

That's... crazy. And pretty cool (no pun intended). And also somewhat scary to look at. (Freezing to death––or even just being cold?––is not my idea of a good time.)

Others thought so, too.

Some suggested the frozen egg looked like a piece of modern art and to be honest... we totally get it.

We'll pass, though.

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?

There's no shortage of excellent horror fiction out there. Recently I read The Terror by Dan Simmons and can't remember the last time I felt that claustrophobic and nervous. But I am also a fan of quite a few classics. Are there any other horror books that capture grief as effectively as Stephen King's Pet Sematary? What other book evokes folk horror as beautifully as Thomas Tryon's Harvest Home? Let's not forget this wonderful classic: The Haunting of Hill House. I could rave about that one (and Shirley Jackson) for days. All of these books left their mark on me and yes, I'd include them on a list (if I were to make one) of some of the scariest books I've read.

People had their own opinions to share––and books to recommend––after Redditor Tylerisdumber asked the online community,

"What's the scariest book you've ever read?"

Guys tend to be a little less open but today it's time for the ladies to ask away. Even wondered what they really think or feel about their body, yours? Today's the day to get the answers you didn't know you needed.
