    I like it. Shiny, stripy orange is the new black. Ordering on Amazon now.

    On a serious note, the Antartic temperatures (-40 deg.) are brutal. I gather they aren't standing outside with an 8-inch dob like I do here but still. Below 18F I think twice before heading out.

    especially when I dine at any expensive restaurant.

    I watched one meteor shower last winter in a sleeping bag on a lawn chair. One of the benefits of a solitary hobby, fashion isn't relevant.
