Fun Times in Antarctica - The 300 Club

I have a blogging friend who is working in Antarctica. His name is Neal and that's him on the right in the picture below. If you've ever wondered what people do with their spare time at the South Pole, you should check out his blog. This is what they do when the temperature dips down to a "bone" chilling -100F:

When the temperature drops to -100F (-73C) we turn the sauna up to 200F (93C). We disrobe and sit inside the sauna naked until we feel like we're cooked then go outside to the pole. The experience gives us a 300F degree (160C) change in temperature in a matter of seconds.

(Hubba, hubba)

HOLY FRICKING COW! LMAO! The things some folks (in some places) will do to entertain themselves, entertaining us in the process. Thanks for sharing that one, Laurie. LOL.

OK, this just seems like a bad idea. . .

Hi there!

Can you help me to promote this challenge?

I’m trying to post 1 Million Love Messages from All around The World in my Blog.

Readers write and dedicate the message to someone special, send it by e-mail, and I post it in 1 Million Love Messages

It’s a big challenge, I know.
But I believe that everybody has something to say to someone special.

I’ll wait for your visit and for your messages.
Thanks for your attention and compliments from Portugal.

I grew up in a northern WI town and there were a few times that the temperature got down to -70°F and that was f'n COLD!!! That was snot-to-icicle in 0.01 sec COLD!! That was not naked-cold! That was freeze-your-extremities-off cold. Extremities - as in these guys' smiley faces.
