Tis the Season

Now that temperatures have plummeted below -15 and stayed there, I feel it necessary to bring this up, because it's driving me batty:
The wind chill has no effect on whether or not to plug in your vehicle.

Every night on the news they say, "It's -15 outside, feels like -27 with the wind chill.  Bundle up and plug in your vehicles!"
No.
Your engine will only cool off to the ambient air temperature and then stay there.  The wind chill will not make your engine "feel like -27".  It's easy to remember if you just realize that engines don't feel.

Further reading here if you don't believe me.

The more you know.

Oh... but it's ok if you bundle up.  It's effing cold up in this bitch!

Why wouldn't you want to work in retail?

5:50 pm. Customer enters the store. Liz is on greeting duty.

Liz: "Hi there, just to let you know we're closing in about 10 minutes."
Customer: "You guys close at 6?"
Liz: "Yes we do."
[Now disgruntled] Customer: "Well some people are just getting off work right now."
Jacquie thinks: "Yeah, us. We are just getting off work because the store is closed, motherfucker."

"News"

Dear "News" "Reporters",

I don't care what randoms tweet about current events. If I cared about what people posted on Twitter, I would sign up for a Twitter account.
Stop being lazy sons of bitches and do some of your own reporting. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

Regards,

Jacquie
