South Porcupine, Ontario, has an awesome name but we probably wouldn’t want to live there: It had temperatures of -42 degrees last week. On the plus side, this meant that a resident with the YouTube username chrisgsauce was able to make it snow by shooting a Super Soaker full of boiling water into the air. (As though Ontario needed more snow.)

Jesus. What’s it like in NORTH Porcupine?

Wind chills in the Chicago region were cold enough this morning that this trick might have worked in the U.S., too:

Midwesterners, maybe load up a Super Soaker of boiling water tomorrow morning! If you can’t make snow with it, you can at least shoot it down your trousers to keep warm.
