2. It has never actually snowed in Antarctica. Snow is actually shipped in on special ice breaker vessels. The operation requires a staff of approximately 3000 full time workers.
3. In the United States, snow is dropped from high-altitude aircraft, including refunctioned helicopters from the war in Viet Nam.
4. In 1912, after battling Congress for three years on the subject, President William Howard Taft, through executive order, outlawed snow in the United States. Later in the same year, Woodrow Wilson was elected president, after successfully debating that "Snow is a fundamental right of the American people."
5. The largest snowperson ever built was put together with the assistance of that giant, fire-breathing, dragon robot that frequents many monster truck rallies.
6. Snow is white because, at its inception, all other colors were being used in the wallpaper industry. The monopoly on colors was disbanded, but the white had clearly been established as the standard and trademark in snow-producing corporations.
7. During prohibition, rogues brewmasters formerly employed by the Anheuser Busch brewery in St. Louis, Missouri, took it upon themselves to develop beer-flavored snow. As a result roads were cleared of the stuff nightly, and school was never cancelled. Three men and one woman were quickly arrested by FBI agents. One man remains alive to this day, after being pardoned by Bill Clinton on his last day in office.
8. The original Empire State Building was to be located a block south of the current structure. It was removed, and the current building was built after the weight of snow collapsed the unfinished framework in 1929.
9. Six polar bears negotiated themselves out of an endorsement contract with Coca-Cola. After a number of successful seasons with the soft drink superpower, the polar bears were released from their contract when they unsuccessfully demanded chicken of the sea be added to craft services on the set of their commercials.
10. Snowflakes have always been proud of two things: first, all flakes have six sides, and second, no two flakes are alike. These facts are based on the continuing debate among republicans and democrats. A compromise was adopted when democrats insisted that all flakes be have uniformity, and republicans demanded individuality. The controversy was reignited, in 2012, when President Barack Obama signed into law the Snowflake Reduction Accord, which states that by 2015, all snowflakes will be reduced to four equal sides. The IRS will monitor each flake through the use of drones. Citizens may report overachieving or maverick snowflakes on a new three billion dollar website yet to be developed.
