Cold morning

There is a common misconception that you lose most of your body heat through your uncovered head, so wearing a hat of some sort should keep you warm. Based on that theory, this girl was all set on a recent very cold morning.

I'm just not sure her legs were convinced.

According to Dr. Mehmet Oz:
If you check the US Army Survival Manual's basic principal of cold weather survival it says to always keep your head covered because you can lose 40-45% of your body heat from an unprotected head. Tell that to the guy standing outside with no pants on. Truth is you lose no more heat from your head than any other portion of your body. Any part of your body exposed to the cold will drop core body temperature. When emergency medical technicians treat for hypothermia, they apply heat to the chest, neck, armpits and groin. The head? Not so much.
