A man and his wife were sitting in the living room discussing a “Living Will”

"Just so you know, I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug."

His wife got up, unplugged the TV and threw out all the beer.

You're freezing...literally

Temps around the nation have been a tad cool lately. So cold that doctors are warning to be wary of frostbite and hypothermia. Both can sneak up on you if not careful. Here's how you know frostbite has set in:
  • Starts with a burning sensation and redness
  • Progresses to numbness and tingling
  • Skin may look white or gray
  • You feel 'clumsy'
The best thing to do is stick your fingers under your armpits for warmth. Next, use warm water (not hot water!). Using a hairdryer, stove or fire can cause damage to your skin.

Hypothermia (low body temp):
  • You feel tremors or shakes
  • Difficulty using hands
  • Feeling confused
The best thing to do (obviously) is get into a warm room. 15 minutes is all you need, unless it's a child, then get them to a doctor.

How to avoid frostbite and hypothermia
  • Dress warm, but in layers. Take off clothes if you feel yourself sweating.
  • Keep your face and fingers covered -- those are the first parts affected by frostbite
  • Wear a hat
  • Avoid alcohol and smoking
  • Avoid metal or water

Most important...

Don't get your tongue stuck...
