    How 'bout this puppy?: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dakotaraptor
    One of the largest dromeasaurs (the "raptors") and one of the last living dinosaurs. Velociptor is just the size of a turkey, eat your heart out turkey.

    That`s the finest pun i`ve heard in a while. That`s a fact.

    I can verify this. Surprise snow storms seem to be a theme for January here.

    Well it turns out you don't automatically freeze at -43 F.
    My sister and brother in-law are crazy for deciding to late at
    night strip down to almost naked and stand by a sign
    that displayed -43 on it.
    I got cold just looking at it. :p

    Noooo...

    We just like to have different ways to say the same thing. "Same but different", you know.

    And we love to bend & twist words... Conjugations...

    https://www.riemurasia.net/kuva/Koira-sanan-erimuodot/139787

    Someone tested how many conjugations he/she could find to the word "kauppa" (a shop).

    2 253.

    http://www.ling.helsinki.fi/~fkarlsso/genkau2.html

    And we are known about not liking small talk but longer and deeper conversations. (Like Kimi.)

    In Finland we have made this thing called Vammas PSB 5500. (It is possible that Vammas have been sold to USA or something like that. I don't know.)

    https://www.fortbrand.com/airfield_maintenance_equipment/doc-metric/Vammas-Snow-How-2011-metric-PSB4500-PSB5500.pdf

    We have some snowhow and that is why most Finnish airports operate 24/7/365 no matter about weather.

    A man named Charles Osborne had the hiccups for 69 years. I`ve had them for the last three days and I thought I was out of luck.

    This would be cool if they interlinked and created many different stories! The possible combinations would be unreal.

    I have a 36" snow blower. It wouldn't start, it blows.
