Me, late fall: I'm going to plant a vegetable garden

Everyone: winter will kill it!

Me: if it doesn't, will you admit that the climate is changing?

Everyone: Haha sure!

*it is now mid-january*

*I still have happy pea plants in containers and even the collards in the ground are doing just fine*

Me: welllll?

Everyone: No I won't come join the protest against our local coal power plant there's a musician playing in town I'd really like to see.
