FROZEN CORNEAS

i think i want some sled dogs! my new calling!
I mean, just look at these little...SUGAR MUFfins:


But in my prelim research this AM I came across this little tidbit: "In 2004, Doug Swingley, a four-time Iditarod winner, pulled out of the race with frostbitten corneas after taking off his goggles to see the trail when the wind chill was 90 below zero." So I reconsider..

Just reading the words 'frostbitten corneas' makes my eyes hurt.

EVERYONE knows you don't take off your goggles with a -90 windchill. Jackass.

But here's the weird thing: the sled dogs were fine. Go figure...

Frostbitten aything is a total turnoff for me, so no dog sled racing. But I would take any of those dogs.
