BAH!! You pansy. I was in Cleveland wathcing the Bengals beat up on the Brownies (WHO DEY!) and the wind chill was negative ****ing 15, and the wind didn't stop. Imagine that for 4 hours...not to mention the extra half an hour walking down the damn windtunnel created by the buildings in downtown Cleveland.

Therefore, I win over you.

Well, -5 is fairly mild for Duluth. -20 is when I start thinking of it as cold. Usually, then I start wearing a jacket. Usually.

Suck it.

Chicago. Where it's -25 degrees Fahrenheit with wind chill one day, and 65 degrees Fahrenheit the next.

Ohh, right. Wind chill. Well, that brings it down to -40 for Duluth. Is that Fahrenheit or Celsius? You decide.

Yeah, I know how much winter sucks. It was a pretty frigid 60 degrees Fahrenheit over here in Southern California a few days ago.

We actually don't get winter. We just have spring, a long summer, and autumn. Leaves are still turning red and yellow, for Christ's sake!

But it's a "dry" cold.

Seriously, I grew up in northern Indiana where it could get pretty cold, but it was after moving to southwest Virginia that I experienced how bad "wet" cold weather can be. It rarely gets really cold here, but when the temperature hovers around freezing the air stays very humid and soaks into your clothes and generally gives you that wonderful "bone-chilling" effect. I frequently find myself hoping that it actually gets colder just to knock that humidity out of the air.

I like to call it "pneumonia weather".

Pretty cold outside.

It's a comfortable 39 degrees outside at the moment. There is actually sun in Western Washington today. The birds are singing and I'm having fun just lazing about.

Speaking of which: has anyone seen that church in eastern Europe with the interior completely decorated with the bones of thousands of plague victims? I think I saw it on the History Channel. It's got to be one of the most macabre things I've ever seen.

OT: Well, it's now hovering around +5 degrees F here in southwest Virginia, so it's now the coldest that it's been here in recent memory, but at least it's dry.

But to be fair, I've never really experienced a "wet cold." I don't think.

Sure you have. It usually happens in the Spring up there. It's any time that the temp is >32F but <40F and the humidity level is high. The reason that you don't notice it so much up there is because it gets so friggin' cold (and stays that way all winter) that anything above freezing feels warm.

The reason I bitch about the "wet cold" so much is that it usually doesn't get much colder than freezing down here (now being an exception) but the air stays damp all winter long unless it does, and, being a transplanted Yankee, I'm used to "dry cold".

You'll have to go into specifics here, but I sincerely hope that you're not referring to 80s pop, because I think that the vast majority of it sucked balls. Repetitive, repetitive, repetitive crap. Towards the end of the decade I wanted to seek out and kill the ****in' moron whose brilliant idea was like "Hey, let's see how many times we can repeat the same 7- to 9-note tune and the same 7- to 9-word phrase in one song. I'll bet it becomes a trend." Well, unfortunately it did.

It's a known fact that 80's pop songs were known for their lyrical eloquence and subtlety, harmonically and contrapuntally complex music, and their total lack of flamboyantly homosexual overtones.

You wouldn't like it. "Wet cold" is not a very good description, try "piercingly horrible cold."

Also, yes, the 80's had Regan and some (some) good entertainment, but agh, it's the culture that bothers me.

Reagan was great, and so were the cartoons, but there are other parts of the 80s that I really hope stay in the 80s.

Leg warmers, for example.

By even daring to say that the 90s had better cartoons than the 80s you just failed harder than anyone has ever failed in the history of fail. Good luck living with yourself you horrible horrible person.

People, people...

I think we can all agree: ANY DECADE OTHER THAN THE ONE YOU PERSONALLY CAME-OF-AGE IN SUCKS MORE HORRIBLY THAN THE POWER OF WORDS COULD EVER EXPRESS.



Lets face it: Nobody walks away unscathed from the great "let's compare the pop-culture of different decades" debate. It's a zero-sum game, and we all get dirty and become lesser human beings for doing it.




But the 80's were the best...

80's had some ****ty music. Though some metal in the 80's was damn fine.

Also, all cartoons suck after awhile. Just try watching *Insert a show you liked when you were 12* and tell yourself that you still like it. They never age well.
