Ever Wonder Why...

...the Russians are such hardy people?

Welcome to the coldest village on Earth where the temperature can hit -71.2C, mobiles don't work... but homes still have outside toilets

  • Russian village of Oymyakon has lowest recorded temperature for any permanently inhabited location
  • Nothing grows so locals live off diet of reindeer meat and horse meat but never suffer malnourishment
  • Locals keep their cars running all day for fear of them not starting again if turned off
  • Digging graves for a funeral can take up to three days as ground has to be thawed with hot coals

You gotta wonder why they didn't win the Cold War.
