Forget sticking your tongue to a flag pole. This is the way to prove just how cold it is.

Minneapolis resident Tom Grotting has made a name for himself by placing freezing pairs of jeans to show just how frigid it is.
Grotting says the idea came to him a few years ago when the famed Polar Vortex hit the city with its frigid temperatures. From there it snowballed and now he posts photos on a Facebook page he runs. Still, he says the pants are for one person in particular:
I mostly do it for my neighbor, Diane. The winter gets a little long and she doesn’t like winter very much so it’s mostly entertainment for Diane.”
