WORLD EXCLUSIVE! Hell, Frozen Over

It’s time to do all that shit you sarcastically told everybody you’d do, Opponauts!


No, this isn’t a typo or a prank. No doctoring has been done to this screenshot. This is a real temperature in a real town in Michigan, the birthplace of the state in fact.

From Wikipedia:

‘There are two theories for the origin of Hell’s name. The first is that a pair of German travelers stepped out of a stagecoach one sunny afternoon in the 1830s, and one said to the other, “So schön hell!” (translated as, “So beautifully bright!”) Their comments were overheard by some locals and the name stuck.[3] Soon after Michigan gained statehood, George Reeves was asked what he thought the town he helped settle should be called and replied “I don’t care. You can name it Hell for all I care.” The name became official on October 13, 1841.


What you should take away from this is that 1-Hell freezes over every year(TWICE if you count the one in Norway), and 2-you should be more careful about the phrases you use.

Have a great Wednesday!
