When it's so flipping cold!! (for so long)

Whenever someone complains how cold it is, there is always Mr. Toughguy who says "What are you complaining about" or "Just put on a coat" or "In Alaska its negative 12 so dont complain".  These guys gets insulted if you are uncomfortable with freezing cold weather.

What was the coldest temperature you've experienced?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

We were at -1 to -11 last night in Chicago. Winds made it feel like -20 to -30. We've had -45 with the wind in the past. I think I'm ready for a DO

I'm tempted to say the coldest photoDO was Vermont fauxrora, but that was probably more an issue of lack of proper gear than actually being coldest, actual coldest was probably Banff. (and honorable mention to CLE)

Slightly different question here - what was the coldest DO you've ever attended?

Snow Hype!
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Receptacles (all types - cups, cans, jars, boxes, plates, etc) which are filled to the brim (or beyond), whereby no matter what the next move is, it will result in a spill/overflow/mess.

To add, people who, without a singel **** to give, dump something on top as if it were empty, and casually walk away.
