This may be one of those areas where knowledge is a dangerous thing, or what you don’t know can’t hurt you. My mother spent a bazillion hours admonishing us on the downside of eating snow. It didn’t take. I, and nearly everyone of my childhood buddies, ate snow by the barrel. I don’t think I EVER heard of anyone getting sick from it.

I was thinking last night about all the crazy crap we did when I was a kid and how people would get arrested if they let their kids do that stuff today.

The saddest change is that kids can't just walk outside and play anymore because of all the sick and twisted b@stards out there.

Good Lord, people need to get a grip!

When I was a child I pushed off the blackened, polluted snow on top so that I could get to the good, tasty white snow underneath. Somehow I've made it to the ripe age of 39.

There's some speculation that the reason kids are allergic to everything under the sun these days is because their parents are trying to raise them in a "bacteria-free" lifestyle and their bodies aren't building up immunities the way they should.

Don't lick metal flagpoles in subzero temperatures either.

Don't pee on electric fences in any kind of weather.

My big dog likes ice cubes. He thinks they’re treats because they come out of the freezer! I also freeze his treats, sometimes, because he gets to chew more and he likes that.

Dogs eat snow. Rabbits eat snow. Moose eat snow. Birds eat snow. That’s not all they eat, especially the dogs—you don’t want to know.
