Helten Christian (Christian Helten):
10. A wave of cold weather — a great opportunity to quit smoking. Or violate the agreement "to smoke only on the balcony, not in the apartment."
11. My willingness to submit to the poor on the streets is in inverse proportion to the temperature rise. I am waiting with interest, will it remain the same when the temperature again rises above zero. After all, to be honest, and then still quite cold.
12. For taxi drivers the weather — the blessing of heaven. In another quarter of an hour while waiting for the night bus — a common occurrence, but the — 15 ° C, my hand involuntarily goes up, if the distance light up black and yellow checkered.

16. When a few days ago, I took a train, my hair was so electrified by the dry air that clung to face an elderly lady sitting next. Because the sense of humor in her situation was bad, she spat out for revenge on my shoes. Hence the rule: comb your hair in a ponytail.
17. Too hot, too cold — people will always grumble about the weather.
18. Thermal underwear can not look sexy.
19. If frozen windshield, it must pour a glass of cold water from the tap and clean. If you pour the warm water, the glass may crack.
Sharnig Max (Max Scharnigg):
