    People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.

    I grew up on a sliver of land between the Tug Hill Plateau and the Adirondack Park. Believe me, this IS the decent place to move.

    Growing up we had 3 days when it didn't get above -35 and the windchill was supposedly around -50. You know how it hurts you to breathe when it gets really cold? When it gets that cold, the back of your eyeballs hurt. THE BACK part in your head. I grew up on a farm, I spent those three days running between the house and the barn trying not to fall in the snow. Thanks to my father's retelling of how my grandfather's school teacher died in a snowbank from hypothermia after delivering all the kids home on a "much warmer day" I was pretty sure the same fate was a distinct possibilty. it didn't help that everytime before I went out he reminded me "not lose any fingers or toes."
