Diamondback Dan, Copperhead Canyon's "Teller of Tall Tales", was braggin' to the boys at the Viper's Den about his ability as a master hunter.
"So there I was, all alone in the Arctic wilderness, freezin' my tail off even though it was the middle of July, not more than a mile or two from the North Pole itself. I tracked that ol' polar bear for days on end, gettin' a little closer by the minute. By the time I caught up to him, I had caught such a terrible cold I couldn't get a bead on him 'cause of my waterin' eyes and my sneezin'. He was a beauty, too, at least 1000 pounds. His hide would be in my den right now if it weren't for that blasted cold."
Jeff sighed, leaned back, and shot a stream of tobacco in the spittoon. "Dan, that story is about as thin as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model."

Does Jeff have a point?


Answer

Yes. Jeff knows that one cannot catch a cold while at the North Pole, because cold viruses cannot survive there due to the extreme low temperatures. One can only catch a cold by being in contact with another person with the virus.
