How cold is it outside? Well, by way of a visual, it's so cold that a wet T-shirt will freeze completely solid in less than a minute.

In Dubuque, Iowa, home of Envision Sports, temperatures fell to around 50 degrees below zero with the wind chill, so the company decided it was time for a wet T-shirt contest, albeit one with a decidedly cold-weather twist.

They took a soaking wet shirt outside to see how long it would take before it froze solid. The answer? Well, a little less than a minute. Please, try it yourself, if you're so inclined.

We'll just take their word for it.
