Jan 19, 2014: Fish 'flash-frozen' by harsh Norwegian winds
xoxoxoBruce Saturday Jan 18 08:35 PM
The water temperature must have been hanging right on the edge in order to freeze quick enough to prevent the fish from getting away.

That is seriously weird. I bet dogs like it though.

The sad thing is - see the leash? The dog's owner is holding the end of it... under the ice.

It's pre-seasoned so all you need is a few onions and a bucket of milk for Cream of Herring Soup.

Norwegia is a way better name.

From imjur today, I don't know where or when they were taken.

There's a frog that can involuntarily increase the glucose level in its blood when temperatures go down, which lowers its freezing point. You can literally freeze the frog rock-hard in the freezer, then thaw it out and watch it come back to life.

Amazing more of this isn't seen.
xoxoxoBruce Thursday Jan 23 12:01 PM
I think it happens a lot, but out in the boondocks where nobody sees it.
Gravdigr Thursday Jan 23 12:59 PM
Wow, that fox pic depresses the hell outta me. Think of how he/she must've suffered before finally succumbing.

I'm sure they're useful and all that, but they look like hideous winkle-pickers. Won't somebody think of the children...?
Actually Grav, Mr Fox probably lost his marbles to hypothermia long before he was frozen.
Better than dying hot-blooded at the mercy of a pack of dogs.
IMHO and all that.

Fox was probably swimming through some thick slushy water. The slush got thicker, forward progress was slowed. Nothing to climb up onto. But I'll just rest my snout here on this ice burg for a minute and rest. Maybe take a little nap. So tired.

And Mrs. Paul hatches a plan.

I keep thinking, and forgive me, please, but

Ice fishing! Just take your handy dandy chain saw out to the frozen pond and cut out a chunk 'o fish. Don't even have to freeze your butt off waiting for a bite.

I reckon the shoes are ice skates
BigV Sunday Jan 26 10:48 PM
I don't think the Fox suffered. It was probably escaping something scarier than cold water or pursuing something tastier. Hypothermia is not unpleasant at the end.

Elk in Norway.

It's spa day in Norwegia.

I found an article about fish being killed in Minnesota lakes , which may apply to the Norwegian mess.
