Sleek Japanese mermaids with orange and white koi bodies
Dark, scaly mermaids with enormous white eyes so that they can hunt at the bottom of the sea
Small mermaids with spiky, poisonous lionfish bodies
Mermaids with sharp teeth and shark tails that hunt sailors for fun

—Ken Simosko, meteorologist from Bismarck, North Dakota • Commenting on the intense so-called “polar vortex” reportedly working its way down through the US, funneling freezing North Pole air as far south as the Gulf Coast. Areas in North Dakota and Minnesota are forecasted to sustain a ghoulish wind chill of around minus 50 degrees Fahrenheit, which is, as Simosko emphasized, a dire condition for public health — such temperatures could, he said, cause the onset of frostbite in a mere five minutes.
