Shiver me timbers. Are you one of those people who are always cold regardless of season or the number of layers? If you are, here are 19 things you will probably understand about being eternally cold…

1. It doesn’t matter if it’s 25 degrees outside, you are always freezing.


2. Layering up is futile. You’re so cold it seems to come from inside you.

10. You live a solitary, frozen existence that few understand.

17. And when they insist you dress warmer you’re like, “You obviously don’t get it, warm-blood.”


18. Because it doesn’t matter if you wear 10 sweaters while sitting under a heat lamp in Ecuador, you’re a shivering, frigid ice-person. Always.

19. But hey! At least your beer never gets warm in your hand.
