1. The deep freeze gripping the Prairies has set new records in Alberta and Saskatchewan with lows into the -40s in several communities. And while they are no strangers to sub-zero (many times over) temperatures, even they say it's too cold. So when life throws frigid temperatures and wind chills at you, why not have some fun with it! Some have discovered If you leave wet pants and shirts outside in this weather, they'll become aerodynamic -- as evidenced by the video above. They're calling it the Great Canadian Frozen Jeans Frisbee Challenge, and it's gained international attention, even from Jimmy Fallon. Have you ever tried this?

Culinary fans will try almost anything, but those up north have come up with a new twist on an old favourite -- frozen spaghetti. The recipe is easy: take spaghetti outside, and voila -- crunchy goodness! Have you ever accidentally frozen your food (such as leaving it in the car on a frigid night, or putting something by mistake in the freezer that should not go there)?

3. Every year, during a cold spell, someone decides to post pictures on Instagram, of the boiling water challenge. The challenge, which appears to turn boiling hot water into "snow" or steam in freezing temperatures, sends some to hospital with severe burns. While the challenge seems straightforward or safe to those doing it, some are getting splashed back with hot, boiling water. And this year, no doubt, will not be any different. Have you ever foolishly participated in this hot water challenge?
