Right, you know the song from Grease (don't ask me, i'm musically challenged) with the line "i've got chills, they're multiplying"....

...well, how many times would your chills have to multiply before you froze to death?

42

Really? That seems way too many surely.

Yes, 42. It is the universal answer to the question, "What is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything?" When in doubt, the answer is 42.

42. There is no formula. It's just what it is.

Do you take the average temperature that people would consider to be chilly and the temperature which is low enough to drain the body temp and then start multiplying?

i.e if 15degrees centigrade was chilly, -15degrees centigrade potentially fatal, difference=30degrees so 2 4 8 16 32 would mean chills would have to multply more than 4.75 but less than 5

i'm confusing myself lol

No it's plain and simple 42. Try to accept that. It's a fact.

Its the same amount of licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop. Give or take 5 licks because everyone is different.

I am inclined to believe this is the most logical answer so far. :smile:
