I told my dad that. He said it was the worst excuse for me to get a drink he'd ever heard.

It is a very widespread misconception that the common cold can be caused by (or the chance of getting infected by it is increased by) exposure to cold weather. In reality, the common cold is caused by viruses and has nothing to do with low temperatures.
ha, i inadvertently proved that this winter. Went the whole time w/o a coat {except during snow} and all my friends/family kept sayin "you're gonna catch a cold!" "you're gonna be sick" ...and the exact ones that said it all got sick and i didn't...

another reason the "Great" wall of china isnt visible from space: its not complete. it was never completed. there are sections that are completed. and other sections where it wasnt even started. as a way to keep pesky neighbors away, it didnt do a real good job.
