As you well know, the UK is currently suffering from an absolute meltdown thanks to an unexpected four days of snowy chaos wrought by Storm Emma and the so-called Beast From The East.
Sub-zero temperatures and blizzard-like conditions have been causing disruption across the country - flights and trains have been cancelled, traffic's been grinding to a halt, drivers have been stranded in their vehicles.
Meanwhile, people haven't been able to leave their homes - let alone go to work - instead choosing to sit within their snow-covered homes in the hope the unforeseen weather subsides.
It's escalated to such an extent that the government's even had to call upon the Armed Forces to step in as the death toll rose to ten and police and hospitals are unable to cope with the hundreds of injuries and accidents unfolding across the country.
Forecasters have warned about the life-threatening conditions, urging drivers to avoid the roads as the snow turns to ice. Needless to say, it's absolute mayhem, with the country proving we are in no way capable of dealing with weather that isn't meh-levels of mild or spitty rain.
However (and this is a big however), despite the deadly conditions and the roads on lockdown, there's one thing that the Arctic weather couldn't stop Brits from doing - going out on the lash on a Friday night.
Of course it didn't. Because we might say 'no' to icy roads, 'no' to working on a snow day, and 'no' to weather that has quite literally been claiming lives, but we will never say 'no' to the pub.
We might cower at the thought of shoveling the driveway, but throw booze into the equation and Brits are actually a rather resilient bunch. Just check out these pictures taken last night in Newcastle.
Hell, these Geordies' love for the sesh is so strong, they don't even need shoes. It might've been Baltic outside, but bare legs, exposed arms and uncovered bellies were on show as revelers painted the town crimson red.
Fuck you Storm Emma! And as for the Beast of the East, it ain't no match for boozed up Brits. Because it doesn't matter if it's heavy snow, blistering heat, or torrential rain - nothing will stop the UK from enjoying a Friday night piss up.
