Winter Bootstrap

Your reality, sir, is lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever” - Baron Von Munchhausen

Some of you might understand the term 'bootstrap'. In simple terms it is a metaphor for a self sustaining process.

I heard once that it comes from Baron Von Munchhausen pulling himself out of the swamp by his own bootstraps (although I seem to remember it was by his ponytail). I love the absurdity of it, yet sometimes it is exactly what you have to do.
