    Definitely the cold. Most of the time I feel uncomfortable even wearing a 2nd layer of clothing or when the temperature is too high above freezing point, so its nice when it's cool enough not to be sweating & feeling hot all the time.


    Like, I get that super cold is gonna be bad, but I'm used to living where -30's a norm (sadly where I live now is the opposite), and I was always find if I wore gloves & shit. I dunno what that translates into for US measurements & I'm too lazy to google it, but to answer the OP's question, I much prefer cold climates than warm ones.

    Why is None a choice? Oh yeah, I love having "no-weather" days, especially on a planet that wouldn't be able to sustain itself without temperature.

    It's quite simple in logic:


    You can always put more on, but you can't keep on taking off.

    Cold wins.

    @ Moonlight: That doesn't make sense. You can't even have no weather or no temperature because even without an atmosphere you'd have something to measure or otherwise evaluate. It's sort of like the "do you believe in climate change" jokes that were pretty popular when Al Gore was getting a lot of exposure.

    Depends. I like being warm under a blanket inside my house, but I'd love for it to be cold outside.

    Cold since you can just warm up with a nice blanket. But with heat you have to pratically go nude to stay cool.

    Plus if your hands get cold, you can always just put em between someone's legs.

    The whole hot or cold thing is kind of dumb when you think about it. When it's hot out people crank up the AC, saying they can't wait for the winter, then when it's cold out people crank up the heat, saying they can't wait until summer. I personally don't have a problem with either, I'll sit out all day long in the summer, or winter, won't effect me. Though when my back gets cold after a couple hours, I'll finally need the heat.

    Cold. To me, it's easier to warm up than cool off.

    Also, I far prefer fall/winter fashion.

    For the last time NO I will not put my hands there.. Stop asking me to!


    Me I LOVE the cold. To me there is nothing better than a cold cold house in winter and being bundled up under covers. The rest of the time I like wearing shorts in the cold.

    Like it was said. You can always put more on, but you can get more naked..

    You're speaking as if that's a bad thing.

    Cold.

    Grew up in SoCal, always hated the heat. Wyoming's winters are still a bit long for my taste, but I much prefer 8 months of cold over 8 months of sweltering heat.

    Winter is my favorite season.

    So naturally I'd say the cold.

    The heat I've never really agreed with.

    Seems rather odd since I was born in August.

    Like my nephew once said:

    If it is cold you can always add an extra layer of clothing.

    If it is hot you can only take so much clothing off.

    Perhaps not verbatim though close enough.


    Edit -


    I'm a tad surprised by the poll numbers.

    Most people I've talked to have preferred the heat (summer) over the cold (winter).

    Granted I do look the middle ground (autumn or spring) namely due to leaves and flowers growing.
