This Siberian Village Has Gotten So Cold Their Town Thermometer Broke

By Aimee Lutkin

The last month of winter has been pretty brisk in New York City, but you know what? We don't know cold. This small village in Siberia, Oymyakon, knows cold. 

Bored Panda reports that Oymyakon is the coldest, permanently settled human habitation in the world. It's so cold that students are still expected to go to school as long as the temperature doesn't drop below -62°F. This winter it has plummeted to -80°F, breaking the town's famous digital thermometer, which was installed as part of a tourist attraction. I guess they're marketing themselves as "cold."
