He he he,

I was born and raised in Canada, that's why I posted this joke. I currently live in Beijing and have noticed that all my expat friends get cold so easily. I love it, it really reminds me of home. I hope you guyz enjoyed the joke.

Cheers and beers

That could also apply for us northern wisconsin guys. Out on the flats we get windchills of less than -60 pretty oftenhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif But we get both extremes, in the summer it will hit into the hundreds plus nasty humidity. All those summer days all I can think about is winter.
