      Well, it doesn't feel as extreme when you grow up with it. I got to help build schools in Africa one summer, which was winter for them, and all of the locals were bundled up in coats and hats even though it was 80F. Brrrr... But even for people growing up in Siberia, I'm sure -40 and colder still feels dang cold lol.

On a warmer day of -20, we went for a little hike in the woods. My wife's cousin would intermittently remove her gloves to take pictures and I thought she was insane. I've also experienced 115F and I think I'd take the -40 over that. Haha

      Part of the problem with learning about the world is discernment through biases of people and how one person's experience has been might not be the same as someone else (and biases can be applied just as much in books as well as in a TH-cam video, because it's part of the human experience to develop biases for things). The best way someone can experience their own outlook on a country is visiting it themselves (and/or in some cases, living there for a while) while keeping other people's biases/experiences in the back of their mind.

      Its a common mistake people compare deep east winter temperatures with west or closer to equator direction countries in winter. Its not same. The key is humidity. Up north there is a lot less humidity and -60c doesnt feel like burning your skin off compared to winter in example Finland, UK, Estonia ect where humidity is much higher in winter. In those countries -30c or lower is worse than -60 in Yakutsk Siberia because dry cold weather is actually not that bad.

      In Yakutsk during January it will typically go down to -39.8C while in Oymyakon it goes down to -49.3C. The record cold in Yakutsk was -64.4C while in Oymyakon was -67.7C.
      In comparison the largest research station in Antarctica, McMurdo Station, only had a record cold of −50.6C and typically is −29.5C in August (winter).
      However still quite a ways warmer than Vostok station which has a record cold of −89.2C, and typically goes down to −71.5C in August (winter).

    Якуты очень устойчивы к холоду. Когда я был студентом в Сибири, то однажды вечером, когда температура была -42°C/-43.6°F (это в тех местах случалось очень редко) один наш студент-якут в одной лёгкой рубашке вышел наружу. Мы устроили танцы на первом этаже студенческого общежития, и внутри было довольно жарко с нашим отоплением и толпой танцующих. Ну, мы подумали что наш друг выйдет на несколько секунд чтобы остыть. Через пару минут мы забеспокоились, выглянули наружу но его нигде не было. Мы побежали наверх в наши комнаты за тёплой одеждой, потом долго искали его около общежития, потом подумали что он наверное уже незаметно вернулся пока мы бегали искали его по окрестностям. Он таки пришёл сам минут через 40 после выхода на мороз. Сказал что гулял по университетскому парку, ему стало холодно и поэтому он вернулся :) Абсолютно никаких последствий. Большинство землян просто замёрзли бы насмерть или по крайней мере получили бы обморожения или воспаление лёгких.

    I was in Yakutsk for a week in January 2006 in frosty temperatures of 55-57. In such frosts, Yakutsk is covered with a cloud of man-made fog from operating boiler houses, so dense that visibility is no more than 3-5 meters. The season for snatching hats from passers-by is opening in the city - you can run away and get lost in the fog. One day it became warm - only 38 degrees. Visibility improved to 100 meters. In the video the temperature is 30 degrees.

      @@tiwiarros1824 That's half true. Turkic people are diverse now, but they can be traced back to common ancestors from the Xiongu state 2200 years ago. Turkic Kazkahs are also Turkic and more similar to Yakuts. I am Turkish and my DNA test even says I have a small amount common with Yakut people.

    I grew up in the Northeastern US, where we got cold winters but nothing that cold! Still got used to negative temperatures though. Then I moved to the Southeastern US, where it rarely gets below freezing but summers are up near 100 with extreme humidity - and I can say that the body adapts remarkably. My first year down here the heat was unbearable, and now I can easily tolerate being outside all day in the summer, and I don't handle the cold as well as I used to. It is truly incredible the range of temperatures at which humans can learn to live and thrive! (And knowing how to dress is most of the key!)

Honestly, you just have to embrace the cold as part of your identity, or you’d go insane. The capital city celebrates a mythic battle every January between the King of the North Winds and the Vulcan King, representing summer. The tradition started when the New York Times belittled the city as “another frozen Siberia, unfit for human life”, so the city just leaned into that reputation and has been celebrating with a whole crew of mythical characters during the winter carnival for 138 years.

    Oh, Yakutsk... I was there in the summer of 2000, and yes, it is interesting with its own peculiarities and beauty. On top of what you said, I want to add much more:
    - The Lena river that pass very close to city and it is very big there. Frozen in winter, thaw from springs so prone to floods, but many buildings in city and around are above ground on pillars.
    - Water pipes/system adapted to weather ...
    - The fact that it is almost on polar circle so in summer day is very long (20h+) and night very short (~2h) with very beautiful sunsets, when sometimes all cloud in the sky turn red. (In winter days are very short and nigths very long.)
    - The permafrost at 5-10 m underground so you can have a nice frige with about a constant temp of -5°C, by just dig a cellar.
    - Insects in summer !!!! I count at least 5 species of mosquito, a big horsefly, several kinds of dragonflies and moore...
    - Forests (unfortunately lately tend to forest fires in summers :( , otherwise very nice to see).
