Remind me to never go to Norway. Too used to the unbearably hot deep South.

LOL! I've seen variations on that before, but the Norwegians now take the cake.

On a side note, years ago I worked with a lady from Alaska. Honest to goodness, in the month of December in a snow storm in Michigan, she was outside waiting for her husband to pick her up... wearing a sweater. No coat, no gloves, no hat, just a thin sweater. She was waiting for it to get cold, I guess... 'twas plenty cold for me. Fifteen degrees fahrenheit, which makes... about -10 Celcius... and she was comfortable.

'Course, then I married a woman from Oklahoma in the south, and promptly introduced her to what we call cold weather up here...

What do you expect Bungleau? We indians are quite resistant to the cold, best weather of the year really

Actually, Gangrell, she was not "native Alaskan" or whatever the politically correct way of saying it is. She was a transplant from somewhere else who had lived there for a few years, and was now transplanted back south.

Still impressive, though.

LMAO! This is the funniest post I've seen in a while, Brenn. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
Luckily, most of those facts aren't true. But only most of them. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
