From below zero Chicago, my friend Mordy made fun of those of us out in the Bay Area who are complaining about an unusual cold snap (there was frost on my windshield this morning!). Yes, he has it worse. But for the really cold weather, we need to head to Antarctica, still the coldest place on earth. According to satellite data, in 2010, Antarctica reached -135.8 degrees Fahrenheit.

+ Off to Never Never Land: A little cold weather can’t stop heavy metal. Metallica just played a concert in Antartica, becoming the first band ever to play all seven continents.
