Do you not experience temperatures in the negative degrees celcius? Like you could die and become a human ice sculpture?

Have you considered constructing giant domes over the city and keeping an artificial climate?

But that would thaw out their iglos. And then where would they live? Plus the polar bears would be trapped in the dome with the Canadians.

We have snow too.

More than you could ever need.
Also, maple syrup, poutine, and awesome beer.

An old colleague is immigrating to the UK, so chatted to them (also her husband) a bit. Their biggest problem is also just figuring out how to get everything across.

Also ran into some old colleagues who just got back from an aemrican conference. Telling me about great post doc positions in tenessee of all places. At least its a surprise to me. Still not sure how easy it will be to get into one of these.

Please, we keep polar bears as pets, when mine gets out of hand I just whack it with my hockey stick and give it a coke and it's all good.
And when that doesn't work I can use my free health care to get my arm re-attached at no cost!


As for the snow it just makes things more fun, makes driving feel like mario kart when you hit a banana, only all the time.
And the fresh morning air wakes you up, you don't even need to drink coffee...rather you can't drink coffee...cause it'll freeze... Then again, a good unintentional ice coffee is always nice on a cold winter morning.

It's somewhere in the middle. And it has Nashville, which is the capital of country music, so whether you make fun of it or not depends on your music tastes.

It isn't Alabama or Florida. I have second cousins (whom I have never met) in Tennessee who are suppose to be good people. Bent was from Tennessee and he is really nice. There is also Memphis which is very nice from what I gather, and Chattanooga has it's own municipal fiber network.
How many fucking people do I have to hammer in order to get that across.

Tennessee is very pretty kountry(West and middle, never seen the higher ranges of the East sadly) but a bit to much in tornado land then I'd be comfortable living in. Fabulous place to see though on vacation one day after you get settled in Houston.


Tennessee in tornado land? BK, you need to research your tornado alley more!

Oh, and like every other state it has very different swaths of culture. Urban, rural, really, really, really rural.

Trouble arrives when the opponents to such a system institute its extreme opposite, where individualism becomes godlike and sacrosanct, and no greater service to any other ideal (including community) is possible. In such a system rapacious greed thrives behind the guise of freedom, and the worst aspects of human nature come to the fore....

That's why it is an alley, silly. Everyone gets them from time to time other than really lucky places. Great plans through Ohio and Kentucky are kind of the barriers. Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Nebraska are the baddest ones.

Let us continue my education

Shower curtains! This has to be a cultural thing. I have only ever encountered a shower curtain once in my life at some shitty bed n breakfast. We build actual showers. Why is the shower curtain such an American staple? Why do shower curtains and their comedic hijinks and the way they leave you vulnerable to serial killers feature so prominently in TV.

We construct actual showers that are usually glass boxes you stand in. A bathroom may often include both a full bath tab and a shower, or sometimes just the shower. I don't know anyone who has a bathtub that serves as their shower.
