It’s so cold…

The upper midwest has been enjoying the ecstatic joys of bitter winter weather – subzero highs, Fahrenheit, with wind-chills exceeding -30F. A great time to be indoors, snuggled up under blankets with cats and loved ones…

However, I realized tonight we might actually be cold enough here (-8F), high enough (~900 feet above sea level), and with low enough relative humidity (55%) to try out a dubious experiment I’d read about but never able to try, that of making a cup full of water disappear like a Republican’s campaign promises after the election.

A cup full of boiling water in hand, I went to the front door, opened it, and let fly with the water. Poof! Hot water flew into the air, instantly turning into vapor as it travelled thru the subzero air. Repeated, in the interests of science, of course, I did it a few more times, inexplicably amused by this pointless display of physics.

Mind you, this only works for Democrats; right-wing losers can only make something out of nothing, not vice-versa. When you need things to be eliminated (debt, recession, hot water), you need a liberal.

What, you thought I’d make a post without some sort of cynical jab at the forces of evil that have destroyed this nation? It’ll be a cold day in hell…
