Cold Control
Starbuck [15:59] Comments: 0 []

I hate snow.

Not for what it is; it fulls my body with adrenaline and my mind with excitement.

But for what it does to my fellow Brits.

A few inches of white stuff, and a hysterical media- and government-fuelled paralysis sets in. Instructions not to go out unless absolutely necessary, demands by staff to leave home early, and worst of all, people on the roads driving at 10mph despite conditions being fine and causing absolute gridlock everywhere...

When the first snow warnings were coming in, my in-laws were even talking about putting snow-chains on their 4WD, despite us living well and truly in the flatlands! SNOW CHAINS!

IT'S JUST A LITTLE BIT OF WEATHER! And safer weather than rain or fog, for that matter, I would hazard.

I blame the climate. The climate of fear, that is. By cowering in fear when faced with the threat of a bit of precipitation, we're giving our manipulators a small but powerful hook which can be used to ease ever-more infringing controls on our liberties.

n n motir cold [anag], that's what it is. Watch out for that phrase. It slips off the tongue.
