    Watched a program on the Military Channel recently about the military dealing with those temps. Antifreeze looked like Jello! Did lookout watch on a sub when we surfaced through the ice above the Artic Circle. Someone said it was -75F, thankfully we were only up for about 15 min.

    Makes you wonder about how the natives survived it.

    Animal furs and snow shelters. Both are crazy warm (an igloo or similar snow shelter stay right around 0*C when done right, regardless of external temperatures).
