Auralnauts' YouTube channel has many cool and funny videos -- "... We change the dialogue in movies to turn them into comedies. We change dialogue in commercials to turn them into dark glimpses into dystopian futures. We count how many people were murdered by popular movie stars. We write music. We basically do whatever we want and hope you enjoy it, because thinking too hard about what people want tends to ruin the creative process."

Weather Undeground (WU) has a couple interesting long articles:
- Which Kills More People: Extreme Heat or Extreme Cold? -- "Extreme heat and extreme cold both kill hundreds of people each year in the U.S., but determining a death toll for each is a process subject to large errors..." Here's a related poll: A related poll about the extreme cold and heat:
- Flu Weather: It's Not the Cold, It's the Humidity -- "Folk wisdom has it that cold weather predisposes you to a cold or flu bug. The truth is a bit more complicated—and a lot more interesting. Research over the past few years has zeroed in on atmospheric moisture as the main weather-related factor in flu transmission. The findings are especially relevant this winter, with the U.S. in the throes of one of its worst winters of flu in years, and its driest winter in more than three decades. The key seems to be humidity levels inside, where people gather (and cough) during cold weather. Because it takes less moisture to saturate cold air than warm air, there can easily be high relative humidity (RH) outside on a bitterly cold day. However, once that air is heated to room temperature, the RH plummets..."
Ant prefers the extreme hot weather (can go naked!) over cold weather. Also, no flu infection for this season so far. ;)
