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 something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
