Cold? What is this cold you speak of?

So I’m in Winnipeg, central Canada (hence the “Aboot” link above).

It is winter. It is currently -20 C out (somewhere around -4 F).

And I’m thirsty. So what do I do?


(Not actual size.)

No matter the season, the only true way to recognise a Winnipegger is by the size of the Slurpee in his hand.

Damn Canadians :) that’s bad enough to want to separate…. hey wait!… (Runs to the local separatist cell)!

What’s next? Tim Horton’s Iced Cappucinos?

You probably just made my friend Eric a blood brother… because he ALWAYS drinks Iced Cappuccinos in winter.

Hello from Edmonton. It’s 80 degrees here, and the palm trees are gently swaying on a warm breeze from the ocean. I’m having a slurpee by the pool right now.

Ah, yes, the tropic heat of Edmonton, which is further north than Winnipeg.

…how’s that work?

EDIT: Nice site, by the way. I love the 5-room dungeon method.

Isn’t drinking a Slurpee of that size in -20 C weather fatal? I just keep picturing your head crumbling into ice shards from an attack of epic brain freeze. Canadians must have some freeze-resistant gene we Michiganders lack.

Pfft. What are you talking about. It’s a simple matter of science.

The world is at -20/-30/-40 C.

The slurpee is between 0 C (freezing temperature) and -5 C.

Hence, we drink the slurpee to warm up.

See? Science!
