GGN Thread About Nothing #206: Deep Down In Florida


Welcome to the 206th edition of The Thread About Nothing.

JB sounds pretty excited on his podcast, talking about Action Heat clothes; Battery powered clothes that use electricity to keep you warm in the winter but I don't know.

Layers. That's how we stayed warm back when I was a boy. You pulled on your long underwear, flannel shirt, jeans, a heavy wool sweater, and a good thick coat. A scarf wrapped around your neck and chest, a hat with ear flaps like they wear up in Canada, two pair of thick wool socks so you could just barely squeeze your feet inside your galoshes, and you were ready to go. It restricted your motion but the sheer exertion of trying to propel your body forward under the weight of all those clothes, without losing your balance and toppling over face first into the snow; that's how you kept warm.

Well, I just don't know. People nowadays: Electric powered clothes? What are they thinking? If the cold bothers them that much they might as well move to Florida. Wear flower printed short sleeve shirts and wear sunglasses up on their foreheads while they sit around on park benches with the other old geezers grumbling about the government and taxes and how they set the air conditioning too cold in restaurants.

Move to Florida. The day I'm senile enough to think about buying electrically warmed clothing, that's just what I'm gonna do.

Brian says Florida rules.

1) No politics, no personal attacks, no excessive swearing, no porn, no graphic violence/ gore.

2) The moderators have ultimate, mind boggling authority. If any of the moderators or editors say drop it, let it go. Please don't argue. It won't end well.

3) If there is a problem email MacGregor Wells at and we'll try to work things out.

Muddy Waters is going deep down in Florida where the sun shines near every day.
