The winters here..
.. get cold. And I do mean cold. To the point of effectively freezing your nasal cavities after making them run. Which in turn makes for odd occurances, like one winter - my first MP3 player is fairly old and more than a little run down, but by some miracle it still functions..
Except when it gets frostbitten a certain amount.
The earphones for it, on the other hand, are very brave troopers and work just fine. The only problem with them?
Frostbite causes them to become sticks..
