I'm posting in Celsius (NOT CENTIGRADE!!!) just so you Americans can learn it. I am very comfortable in both scales as Canada switched to metric when I was 10. Through my work, I actually deal predominately in the imperial scale.

Concerning heat, I would rather -20C than +30C with high humidity.

+1

I fuckin' hate heat.
First of all, cold is much easier to counter, there's all sort of stuff you can easily do in normal situations to heat yourself. If it's hot and you don't have AC, that's it, you're screwed.
Second, heat is not conductive to boozing. In the cold things like mulled wine or grog are awesome. If it's like 40C, you're sweating like crazy and you have a nasty sunburn the best you can probably do is numb yourself with cheap beer.

In conclusion, f*ck heat.

Living in Louisiana i have to agree. Heat sux. The heat down here will kill you quicker than any subzero blizzards up north. Also, freezing to death is relatively benign - you just go to sleep - while dying of heat stroke/exhaustion is a horrible (and embarrassing) way to go.

Somewhere around 0° F is when I start to recognize that it's genuinely cold. Then again, my place is usually about 60° F in the winter and it feels fine to me. Other people will wear jackets when they're over. I guess I'm just used to cold weather.

I know it's too cold when I see a Liberal put their hands in their own pockets
