When you get some time read this. Make a hard copy and when it's time to settle in for the nite pick it up and read it.

Not only just that one, Jack London is a great author! I remember reading that short story in grade school and doing a research paper on him. Check out his other works from the same site.

As he turned to go on, he spat speculatively. There was a sharp, explosive crackle that startled him. He spat again. And again, in the air, before it could fall to the snow, the spittle crackled. He knew that at fifty below spittle crackled on the snow, but this spittle had crackled in the air. Undoubtedly it was colder than fifty below—how much colder he did not know.


How cold is that? :mrgreen:

Hard not to keep rooting for the guy, but it goes to show you that no matter how good you think you are, you cant get cocky in that kind of cold...
