With winter starting to settle into the Northern Hemisphere, this video seems well-timed. In it, the most Canadian couple who I’ve ever seen take great delight in blowing soap bubbles into the cold crisp, minus 49 degree air.
(WHY AREN’T THEY BOTH WEARING HATS AND GLOVES!?!?!)
I’m feeling chill just watching them hang out in weather cold enough to instantly freeze soap bubbles.
What’s that all aboot, eh?
I should point out that when the temperature dips that low, Celsius and Fahrenheit line up. Well, at about minus 40 they do; Minus 40ºF = Minus 40ºC. That is really cold!
